ARLINGTON, Va. — The second permanent Ben’s Chili Bowl location opens on Thursday, March 6, 2014 in the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington, Va. about six months after the initial announcement was made. Bill Cosby will be a part of the festivities according to ARLnow.com.
Located at 1725 Wilson Boulevard it’s closer to the Rosslyn Metro, but Court House doesn’t have such a steep walk (or escalators). This location is the first of three new locations that will open soon and hey, that’s walking distance from where I work! The others are going to be at 1001 H Street and National Airport. There are also Ben’s stands at Nationals Park and FedEx Field.
Ben’s has been around since 1958 with the Nationals Park location opening with the stadium in 2008. FedEx Field’s Ben’s opened in 2011. We’re still waiting on Verizon Center, though that’s only a couple of stops down the Green Line from U Street.
