HUGE disappointment. Given the reputation I expected to at least like, not love, my food. I ordered the chili dog and was so disappointed that I didn't want to finish it. The chili was very bland and tasted watered down. The fries were good. The milkshake was good but was not worth the price. Overall, I would not recommend this place to anyone. Overhyped and overpriced.
I'll take the fall this time. It was all my idea. I had a craving for a chili cheeseburger, and I remembered seeing a sign for this restaurant across the street from the subway station. So my friend and I went there last night.
Bad move! Just because you see it on a sign somewhere doesn't mean it's going to be good. The food was absolutely horrible.
The only good point here was it was FULL of hot young men! Yummy!
C'mon people these reviews are just a tad too generous. $3.55 for an tiny oscar mayer and a scoop of chili? Definitely not worth the price. Go to the Vienna Inn and get virtually the same dog for $1.50.
Ben's is an icon in the DC food scene, and it's easy to see why. The service is always friendly, and if you go more than once, the staff gets to know you and treats you like an old friend. The signature chili half-smokes are always a good choice, and the food is always fresh. They also have tasty vegetarian options, which is a boon in today's culinary world.
The place screams nostalgia, and you never know whether you'll share the counter with a politico, a social activist, or even a Hollywood star (Bill Cosby makes it a point to visit whenever he's in town). The place can get noisy (especially after shows at the nearby Lincoln Theatre or 9:30 Club), but it's aways quick. Ben's also has some of the most generous hours, and is perfect for a late-night snack.
There is something for everyone at Bens. From milkshakes, to burgers, to hot dogs, to vegetarian dishes. The service is excellent and (despite being a popular hang-out) speedy. You can even leave a message in the bathroom on the chalkboard walls.
