Ben's Chili Bowl ♡Ellen's in Washington DC♡

Dress - Misguided (similar)

One of my favourite Washington DC institutions has to be Ben's Chili Bowl, this modest eatery must not be missed if you're ever visiting the city. Ben's has been on the same spot in the U St corridor since 1958 and has seen some of Americas most iconic events and faces; yet it has still managed to maintain it's character and hasn't added any nasty unaffordable tourist trap prices. I would recommend going for a Half-Smoked Chili Dog with Cheese Fries and one of the amazing shakes…I promise you a food coma. 

But of course you doing come to Ben's just for the food..although it is amazing, you come for all the amazing stories that I would totally recommend looking up before you go to there so you understand exactly why this place is as iconic as it is.
