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

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!

Bensons in recent history has been a number of incarnations, of witch the present establishment may be the longest running name in a decade. Ownership has changed hands and so have the many business that have occupied the building. The current proprietor was a bar tender once at Bensons and I should think he must have passed on a strong... More

We stopped in Benson's during the last bit of sunshine on a Salida Friday night. Not planning on eating, we decided to order nachos while we sipped drinks on the back patio. The food was awesome and the atmosphere was great. There was the real feeling that you didn't need to hurry here, and you could easily pass the night... More

We sat on the patio where there was live music. The food was good and they have a nice selection of craft beers. It was a fun evening.

Impressive! Great chicken tortilla soup special on the day we stopped. Matt behind the bar is a hoot. Great laugh and really... More

We wanted a great hamburger and asked around. We were told to try Benson's. We did and what an enjoyable hamburger. It was big enough that my husband and I split it. It was made from locally grown grass fed beef. The bun was freshly made and it was cooked to perfection. The service was great and our meal was... More
