We often make this drive up here just to get the chile rellenos - they are delicious! Our daughter tries to time her visits home so a stop can be made in Benson to have either lunch or dinner at Magaly's on her way in or out. The servers are friendly and the service is good. Like I said, it's... More

It was average Mexican food. Drive another 30 mins and you are in a Mecca of excellent Mexican food. I ordered the red cheese enchiladas. Enchilada sauce was too greasy. The egg on top was overcooked. Food was overpriced for what you get. The staff was friendly and kind.

My wife and I decided to look for authentic Mexican food during our stay in Benson, and Magaly's was our choice. The pico de gallo and tortilla chips was good enough to make a meal, but I had tacos and my wife had a taco and an enchilada. Everything tasted fresh and quite good, and the service was excellent as... More

I have read here that Magalys has slid downhill in recent times. I have always enjoyed the food here so last night my wife & I went there to celebrate our anniversary. My wife had the chicken Pipian that was as good as always. I asked for the red chili that has always been terrific. What arrived was unrecognizable. Cubed... More

You'd be hard pressed to find better mexican food in this area of Arizona. I make a trip via Benson about once a year, and have been eating at Magaly's for at least the last 5 years. I make a point of arranging my travel time so as to be sure and make a dinner on the Benson stop at... More

This restaurant looked promising from the outside. However, the meal was very disappointing. Ordered taco's and they were small, overpriced and looked like they were from a fast food restaurant. Very little meat inside them. Also ordered their deluxe chicken tortilla soup for 8 bucks which was absent of almost all chicken. This was very disappointing too. The service was... More

We are full time RV'ers (wife & me) and eat at a lot of places in a lot of towns. We are staying in Benson, AZ. for two months this time and found Magaly's. We ate at several other places for Mexican but nothing comes close. The food is excellent and has been for the 3 times we have eaten... More

This restaurant was recommended by my hotel. I asked for hide em off the menu that was grilled, and the manager told me they don't have a grill. What kind of Mexican food restaurant doesn't have a grill? So I settled for the chili relleno. It was 6 to 7 inches long deep fried cheese and the pepper was 3... More

We usually call in our order and pick it up to go. I've liked everything I've tried, good chips and salsa too. Employees are friendly, fast, and accurate.

After a long day hiking and visiting Ft. Bowie, we were starving and in the mood for Mexican food. This was a very nice family restaurant, food was more than enough to eat and very good, good service. Would visit again.
