This place is a D.C. institution. I've been here twice and both times, I got the same thing: the original Chili half-smoke. Get it just the way they make it - don't deviate. It's amazing! A half-smoke is a certain kind of hot dog that is unique to D.C., I believe. It's got a terrific slightly garlicky, slightly smoked flavor and it snaps when you bite into it. It's the best Chili dog you'll probably ever have. There are a few locations in the D.C. Area, but go to the one on U street. It's the original and it's iconic -- presidents eat there! (Sit in the back room!)!Afterwards, go upstairs to their museum and gift shop.
