No caption, just a comment.

Unless the guy who owns that restaurant is a Texan, that ain't real chili!

Ben’s Chili Bowl is “The” in place in DC for affluent blacks, and anyone who likes good food.

That is the best chili in Washington. I like the halfsmoke, split and fried, with onions, chili & cheese. I can feel my arteries clogging with every bite, but it’s worth it. Do not wear dry-clean or light-colored clothes to Ben’s.

It is indeed, but I’ll wait until after the Coronation to go back, though I doubt he’ll step foot in there again. Look how daintily, tentatively, he’s nibbling. He knew he had to put in an appearance at Ben’s or every black in town would be insulted, but he’s got no more to do with chili than Ter-AY-za did.

Ben’s onions are grilled in big slices, and is that MUSTARD? Heresy. If you ever do come up to DC, it’s on the Green Line. I think the stop is UDC.

In four of the above pictures that Obama guy is pointing. How ignorant he is. He must have learned that arrogant pointing from Bill Clinton. And what long, skinny fingers he has, ugh!

He's got that John Kerry pointy-finger thing going on.

Why do Democrats always point their fingers like that? I was always taught it was impolite to point.

I'll confess to being totally unaware of "Ben's".

I can't think of anything nice to say about Zero.

Nothing at all.

I look at him, and I see dead babies.

Local tv station here in DC lead this story with comment “President-elect Obama does his part to stimulate the economy.”

My comment, oh wow, he spend a couple of bucks on a bowl of chili and that is to “stimulate the economy” Why don’t they explain how much more of a stimulus to the economy he is making by getting a room in the Hay-Adams hotel for 2 weeks instead of free-loading on the taxpayer by asking for early lodging in Blair House.

I don't know about the economy, but I'm sure it stimulated his bowels!

Yes, we...ughh...can!

Amazingly, he's taken Israel's side on the Gaza thing - something about if there were rockets coming into his house every night, he'd do whatever he had to to protect his girls. It's a small crumb.

1) It's nice that he has taken Israel's side. Perhaps he would like to be Israel's president? No? Taking sides in a totally foreign war (even if I happen to take the same side) in no way makes up for his disastrous policies regarding America. He's soon to be president of the United States. I wish he would take America's side.

2) American abortionists, every day, do far more damage to America than every rocket Hamas has ever launched at Israel in their entire history. And his idea of "protecting" his girls includes killing his grandchildren. He's the enemy.

I used to stop by Ben’s Chili Bowl on the night shift.

Good chili .

If you’re quick you can park in that alley and get a carry out.

Yeah, the Post did a 50th anniversary article last year or so and interviewed Ben and his wife, whose name escapes me, and she said something about looking around one day and thinking “Where are all the black people?” The neighborhood’s gotten pretty gentrified. When I’ve gone in, it’s usually been about 50-50.

Their sons run it on the daily basis now. Everyone black who is anyone goes to Ben’s; the walls are covered with pictures, some with commentary on the person’s favorite dish.
