Yumilicious

Great Mexican food, nice selection on the menu. Staff was friendly and helpful. Resturant is nicely decorated in Mexican motif and is very clean. Food is great. We have eaten here several times over the last two years and have had the same experience every time.

What a great little gem of a restaurant in Benson, AZ! The food was delicious and the waitress couldn't have been any friendlier! Excellent chicken enchiladas and mini tostadas. A great way to end a long day of road traveling!

This is one of those places that could go either way! When we came in one waitress was running around like she had no clue where she was or what she was doing! We waited about 5 - 10 minutes for a table to be cleaned. The waitress we had was good. Our drinks came right away. Mine had to... More

The shredded beef was bland, chile relleno was pretty good, the tacos were low on meat and made with Taco Bell style shells. And we had hair in our chimichanga. Was expecting authentic Mexican this far south but I guess we are in such a small town we should have known better.

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
