Ben’s Chili Bowl to land at Reagan NationalThe Post
Ben’s Chili Bowl continues to expand with a location at Washington National Airport scheduled to open in 2014.

The addition of Ben’s is part of an aggressive push by airport officials to revamp concession offerings at both Reagan National and Washington Dulles International airports. Along with passenger and airline fees, concessions are a major source of income for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which oversees operations at both airports.

Earlier this month, Ben’s announced it was opening a Rosslyn location in 2014 as well. H Street NE is expected to get a location too, along with Nationals Park and FedEx Field.

Now, there may be some criticism of the expansion — I saw some in Facebook comments, but why should the Ali family limit themselves? Their contributions to the District and U Street in particular are wonderful and no less so if they have additional locations. I’m also on board with more places to get a half-smoke.

According to WTOP, National Airport will be getting several other eateries – American Tap Room, Legal Sea Foods and Pinkberry.
