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.

You've heard of Nate & Als Deli in Beverly Hills, right. The place where Lou Wasserstein ate every Saturday and you could bump into countless celebs if you visited often enough. Well, Benjies doesn't have the celebs, but the ambience is very similar and the food is outstanding. Most seating is in booths with some seats along the counter. Service... More

My wife and I have been craving a good Reuben and since we were near Benjie's for a personal appointment, we stopped in for the first time and had lunch. Although we arrived at the beginning of the noon rush and the restaurant was very busy, we were greeted immediately and taken to a set table with menus. A very... More

After driving past Benjie's for years, my aunt and I decided to try it last Friday for lunch. I was hoping that it was going to be the same as a Benjie's family restaurant that was in Glendale for years and I've much missed..but it's completely different. We ordered a brisket melt on sourdough to share with fries and potato... More
