Ben’s Chili Bowl is one of those special places you have to visit. The oil grilled hotdog with Ben’s famous chili is AWESOME. When you bite into the crispy skin of a Ben’s Chili Dog your tongue is in for a treat. This tactile moment includes crunchiness, spiciness, heat, and all the goodness of premium pork hot dog.
Ben’s is more than great dogs and chili Ben’s is about our history. Ben’s was founded in 1958. Ten years later when Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated riots erupted Ben’s was sacred ground and even now a celebrated place.
I appreciate Amy Smith, Burson-Marsteller taking me on this delicious and delightful journey through history and chili dogs.
