Ben's Chili Bowl owner Nizam Ali tells the Washington Post what attracted him to H Street. Ben's Chili Bowl will open its H Street location in the coming months. It is located at the corner of 10th & H.

I don't know....it just seems like some burnt chili on bigger than normal hot dogs and people who know the service folks working behind the counter cutting in line in front of other people.....

And not at all some kind of cultural institution. Oh, and the bathrooms at the location on U street could use some Lysol.

Say what you will. At least there will be a cheap breakfast place on H Street. (Would somebody PLEASE make the Ohio Diner a real diner?!)

Great. Now I'm thinking about Cap City Diner. We had it all, people-- and we threw it all away.

People on this blog can whine about anything. From grocery stores to "pre-fab" houses to Union Mkt to this and beyond, it never ceases to amaze me.

It seems that Ben's has been sitting on this property for a few years. Are they actually going to open in a few months?

Any news on the building collapse at the new Ben's construction site? The workers there have been very evasive, but after the initial collapse, the entire structure has now been torn down, including all of new work on the enclosed patio.
