Ben’s Chili Bowl coming to Dulles International

The iconic DC restaurant Ben’s Chili Bowl is opening a location at Dulles International Airport — bringing its famous homemade chili con carne and half smoke hot dogs to travelers.

The new restaurant will be located near the end of the B Terminal, in the vicinity of Gates B70 and B72.

The new restaurant will feature both carry out food as well as onsite seating. There will be booths, counter seating, and a couple of small tables.

Ben’s is a landmark in the DC area, originally opening in 1958 on U Street in the District. Today, according to its website, there are six locations around the area — including three in DC, two in Maryland, and one at Reagan International.
