  • The half-smoke is a half-pork, half-beef sausage native to DC, generously covered with Ben's chili. The result unparalleled deliciousness. Adam Richman, Man v. Food
  • Get the chili cheese fries and get a fork. Best ever!!!!
  • Best prices in town!
  • Not like the original. No half smoke at this location and my chili dog was cold on the inside. Barley cooked.
  • Get the chili cheese dog and fries. It's like a heart attack in a basket but it is worth it.
  • Delicious!
  • Half smoke all the way ftw! OMG soooo good!!!
  • Popular D.C. original.
  • Half-smoke with chili? OMNOMNOM
  • Very messy - ask for light toppings or get a lot of extra napkins.
  • Get in line before the game, the wait is a few minutes. Once the game starts, it'll take at least a half inning.
