Bill Cosby To Open Arlington Outpost of Ben’s Chili Bowl

March 5, 2014

On Thursday, the Ali family—along with long-time half-smoke aficionado Bill Cosby—will open Ben’s Chili Bowl’s new location in Arlington, Virginia.

The second location of the famed DC eatery is opening in Rosslyn, at 1725 Wilson Boulevard, and will officially open its doors at 10:30 a.m., with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. We’re excited to welcome Ben’s Chili Bowl to Arlington,” Jay Fisette, Chair of the Arlington County Board said in a statement. “Residents and visitors to the nation’s Capitol have enjoyed this iconic landmark for more than a half-century, and we couldn’t be happier that Ben’s has chosen Arlington as its first expansion outside DC.”

But Arlington isn’t the only place Ben’s is expanding to. Plans to open up a third location on H Street, NE, have been brewing for a while, but were delayed after several permit and building issues. The Ali family hopes to open that location sometime this summer.
