Ok but slow

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....

I don't know what menu you had (especially the reviewer 2 days ahead of me), but my menu did not offer chili rellenos, or enchiladas...burros, chimis, tostadas...food very simple to fix. They did have posole, and I ordered it. The posole was right next to excellent, except for the beef; large chunks of grilled beef, chewy and not very tasty.... More

We ate here as a party of 4, service was good, food was ok, I ordered Chilaquiles with an egg. NOT what I was used to having just spent my winter in Mexico, The gorilla soup was runny, flats a little on small side.

Food is good, not great. Shredded beef is their specialty, and you get a lot. Place is clean, owner was very nice & accommodating. Also had FRESH coffee at 2:30 in the afternoon! Good place to stop and fill up.

We love this restaurant! Junior is the best! I especially like the chile rellenos. Can't find them this good on the East Coast. Homemade Salsa is great too. My eight year old won't eat veges but will eat the salsa here.

We waited as another table got our ordered drinks and chips and salsa. Our waitress kept going back into the kitchen, never asked until "tip" time if we needed anything. Brought the appetizer out with the entree. Quality of the food was less than mediocre. Most tasted like microwave packaged food. My taco salad had a teaspoon of beef and... More

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

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!
