Ben's Next Door


Located at 1211 U Street, right “next door” to our beloved Ben’s Chili Bowl, Next Door features incredible cuisine, 9 LCD flat screens, a 53-foot full bar, and a warm and inviting staff ready to serve you.

Having 55 years of history with Ben’s, Next Door has the same warm feel, with a totally different flair. We offer a variety of dishes that include our incredible Shrimp & White Grits, Crispy-Skin Salmon, and our top seller, Brined Fried Chicken with ‘perfect’ mashed potatoes and kale.

For great starters try our Seared Sea Scallops or delicious Crab Cake! We also have an extensive beer list including a “Super Cold” Heineken tap, offer late night food, and serve Saturday and Sunday brunch. Its the unique twist of our food and signature cocktails that makes Next Door a perfect place to bring a date, family, friends or co-workers.

When heading out to enjoy a night on the town, stop by and see how we keep the tradition rolling with our new restaurant and bar. Come experience the wonderful and friendly atmosphere, exquisite cuisine, unique drinks and warm decor that we strive everyday to perfect for you.

Thank you in advance for your patronage.
