The Best!

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Cindy Grant on November 4, 2010

The best food ever! Since 1956 the Ali family has been serving smokes with the works and chili from their location on U Street in Washington D.C., and their fans are never disappointed. They also have chili cheeseburgers and cheese fries, and a breakfast menu with items like bacon, sausage, eggs, corned beef hash, and hotcakes. They have opened up another restaurant next door which features a different menu and more space.

The website says you can call in your orders ahead of time, but they prefer you don't. Come and stand in line with everyone else! The line is always wrapped around the street and completely full inside. There are a few booths in front, and a larger room in the back, but be prepared to wait.

We have even ordered from their online store and had goodies shipped to us for special occasions.
