Ben's Chili Bowl
Original Chili Half-Smoke

Ben's Chili Bowl is a landmark restaurant in Washington, D.C known locally for its chili dogs, half-smokes, and milkshakes. Ben's menu features the "Original Chili Half-Smoke" as its signature dish. It is a one-quarter pound half-pork and half-beef smoked sausage on "a warm steamed bun," topped with mustard, onions and spicy homemade chili sauce. It is hard to explain in words how such a seemingly ordinary plate can be so wonderous.
