Good food, average service

Went for dinner - it was an average looking place - the staff seemed overwhelmed and not well organized. After we got our water and beverage no one came back. We had to ask someone else to help us. The posole was very good as well as the enchiladas.

Service is pretty good. Food is typical Tex-Mex or Border-Mex. Food is pretty good but nothing to brag about. We go there about once a month and have been for many years. If I wanted the best Mexican food in Benson though I'd be sure to go to Mi Casa. But Magaly's has a 'senior night'. Try Magaly's and Mi... More

I was headed for Mia Casa for lunch but they were closed. Decided to try here and had a good bowl of soup - finally. As mentioned in previous reviews the service needs a tune up. Probably better places to eat....

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.
