Fodor's Review

Pick up brochures and maps of the neighborhood and souvenier merchandise from Ben's Chili Bowl at this small visitor center next to—you guessed it—Ben's Chili Bowl. Although the center is unstaffed, you can pose for a photo with a life-size picture of D.C.'s Black Broadway's most famous resident, Duke Ellington.
