A friend who grew up here was in town from KY & we chose Benji's for breakfast. Neither of us had been here in years, but I had a hankering for lox & bagels for breakfast. Benji's hasn't changed. Not really sure if that is a positive or a negative -- nostalgia is great but it goes only so far.... More

Hubby had the hot corned beef sandwich on kaiser and I had the #2 corned beef/salami/swiss triple decker. See pics. 'Nuff said. He couldn't finish his, I had chix noodle soup with matzo balls and so I could only eat 1/3 of my sandwich on rye. The triple decker was $13.49 and hubby's hot corned beef was $12.49. He asked...

This restaurant has been in business for over 45 years. Large portions at a reasonable price. Not the cheapest place to dine, but the food is worth it.

We visited Benjie's mid-afternoon on a Saturday. Never having been to New York, I'm not going to even try to compare Benjie's to a 'real' deli - whatever that is - I've been to Canter's in LA and a couple of former deli's (PJ Berstein's in Laguna Hills). But - the menu is extensive - lots of sandwiches (including triple-deckers),... More

Anyone who considers this place to be a reasonable facsimile of a New York Jewish deli has never been to a New York Jewish deli! Take it from a guy who grew up in New York City, who went to college in Manhattan and who frequents Canter's whenever possible...this place doesn't even come close to Canter's or Langer's.

My client said it was the best Reuben he's ever had. Good job TripAdvisor reviews for leading us here. The restaurant itself has seen better days & the neighborhood was interesting but the food was phenomenal. I had the #5 triple decker. Awesome!

My birthday dinner..ok, another birthday dinner. If I get gift certificates, I'll use them, especially when my friends KNOW what I like! and I REALLY REALLY like Benjie'! It's been family run for YEARS AND YEARS, longer than I've been in the OC, and that's been 37 years. Chicken noodle soup with matzo ball? YUM The matzo ball was large... More

We've been going here for the last few years on our way home from Disneyland. We always make sure to take some of their goodies home with us i..e the black and white cookies and other delicious concoctions they offer. The service is always good and friendly. Don't pass this one by if you are in the area.
