Late lunch for two, on a cold rainy day, soup and sandwich hit the spot under $15 before tip for two. Worth a visit.

I love a good bar. I love a good beer garden. Most of all, I love sitting at a good bar, in a good bar. Benson's is THE SPOT for me if I'm tired, maybe after a long bike ride, or a good days fishing, and I just want to sit at the bar, drink a cold beer, and chill.... More

I love their burgers and sandwiches and fries, dinners and......everything else I've tried. Benson's is owned by The Fritz people and is spot on for reliably good food with large portions. Their patio is always hopping. Great place.

First time to try chicken n waffle... Wow yum, with siracha honey slaw. And the bar tender did a good job on the Italian margaritas too. Nice place to catch up with a friend... Great to be able to visit and laugh. Clean and fun atmosphere.

Great fish and chips! The waitress was very nice and from Vermont! Fixed us a mean Bloody Mary! I will stop again hopefully in the summer to check out the beer garden. Looked like it would be a fun place to spend a summer evening after a long day of fun.

Went here on the recommendation of hotel staff. Though it is certainly more bar than restaurant the food was excellent and it was a good choice for our party of nine (including 5 kids). Cheese fries were incredible and all meals were very good. Cute street, fun hangout, nice place for a meal.

Bensons is a great place to go for bar food and drinks. Watch football are their many TVs. Dwight and Brett the Owners make you feel like a long lost friend. Very friendly. Best Chicken wings in Salida.

Fun hangout bar with a nice little menu. Try the bacon ranch sweet potatoe fries- oh holy yum. Decent selection of beers to choose from including at least one from local Elevation Brewing. Nice evening

If you're in town and find yourself without TV, this is a nice easy place to enjoy the game. If you're just hungry and want something to eat, same goes...When you sit at the bar and take a look around you'll feel comfortable. Sure, sometimes the locals take it over, and it's assestoelbows in the place, but most of the... More

Great locals hang out! The burgers are excellent and the staff was friendly even knowing we were outsiders. They also have a great patio on days that merit being outdoors!
