BALTIMORE — Iconic Ben's Chili Bowl is coming to Baltimore.

Horseshoe Casino Baltimore announced the nearly $1 million remake of its Marketplace, a collection of popular quick-serve eateries located on the casino’s first level, will now include Ben's Chili Bowl.

It's a landmark that has been a favorite of politicians, celebrities and everyday residents for more than 60 years.

Ben’s Chili Bowl is slated to open its Horseshoe Baltimore location in early March. The restaurant will feature its world-famous Half-Smokes (grilled and served on a warm steamed bun), Classic Chili Dogs (available in four options: Jumbo Beef, Jumbo Turkey, Veggie Dog and Junior Dog) as well as other favorites, including its renowned Angus Beef Burgers, Veggie Burgers, Turkey Burgers, Chili Cheese Fries, Chili Bowls (Con Carne & Veggie/Vegan), and Hand-Spun Milkshakes.

“For years, Marylanders have been asking us when we would open a restaurant in their home state,” said Virginia Ali. “We’re thrilled to now have that opportunity. Joining with Horseshoe Baltimore is a great way to write the next chapter in Ben’s Chili Bowl’s history. We can’t wait to expand our traditions of great food, great service and active community engagement to Charm City.”

“We couldn’t be more pleased to serve as Ben’s Chili Bowl’s first home in Maryland,” said Horseshoe Baltimore Senior Vice President and General Manager Randall Conroy. “This will be more than just a place to enjoy a great meal. It will be a piece of history that extends a long and proud tradition of excellence and connects Baltimore and D.C.”
