Hail To The Half-Smokes: Ben’s Chili Bowl Is Coming to FedEx Field

Drown your inevitable frustrations with the beleaguered Washington Redskins in authentic D.C. chili cheese fries this fall. Iconic U Street eatery Ben's Chili Bowl is opening two new concession stands at FedEx Field. WaPo sports blogger Dan Steinberg has the scoop: "Ben’s will have kiosks at section 341 in the club level and section 420 in the upper level. Both kiosks will offer half-smokes, chili dogs and bowls of chili. The 400-level stand will also have fries and chili cheese fries, while the 300-level will instead offer nachos, due to issues with getting a fryer into the space."

    Yay - now I have one more place NOT to go visit. When Dan Snyder puts in a food item be sure there will be shortages of napkins, mustard and ketchup. How you can still not guess the amount of concessions support you will need after # of years owning a team and running a stadium is beyond me but I paid $120s for those tickets and even more for the food and expect to be able to wipe my mouth afterwards!
