People are waiting hours for hotdogs in Washington, D.C., after President-elect Barack Obama stopped at a local landmark last week. Ben's Chili Bowl serves Washington's best-known indigenous food: half-smoke sausages. Since Obama's visit, the line at Ben's has gone out the door.

There may also be a line for the special inaugural breakfast at Don Ho's restaurant in Hawaii, where Obama was born.
