Didn't look to see if it's mentioned in the other thread, but he deserves his own thread.

Ben Ali, who founded the famous Ben's Chili Bowl in Washington, died last night at his DC home of congestive heart failure. He was 82.

 :(

This calls for a memorial visit and a heaping helping of artery clogging vegetarian chili cheese fries.

I was going to offer how sad, but then I saw that he died in 2009.

I still have never eaten at a Ben's or any of their related places.

Tangentially, I also didn't change my dog's name even with all the shit that went down with Cosby.

No, since i did not comment on the quality of the food. I will hazard a guess that it's better than the food at the Birchmere, which i have had, albeit many years ago.
