Hopefully they will rebuild. The food, service and atmosphere all make this place great. The owners are good people that get to know the customers.

My family eats at the locale spots for breakfast two times a month. We try to go to all of the local breakfast eateries in Brandon. We visited Ben's once and decided that was enough. The breakfast menu was very good. The food was greasy, I know some people like it that way but it was just a little too... More

A wonderful restaurant that was totally destroyed on May 19 2014. I hope they rebuild after 30 years of serving the community.

Preferring to dine local vs. chain, we opted for Ben's. We were not disappointed. Its hard to give a diner an excellent rating but if I would give that rate, it would be to this place. The food was awesome, the service was quite good and the "attitude" of the staff was all smiles. The ambiance wasn't the Ritz but... More

Great place for breakfast, sausage gravy and biscuit is the best in the South. Fried green tomatoes, grits, all the best of southern fair. If you are from up North and want a good Southern meal with friendly service, Come on down!!!

This place is one of the few that has really good pancakes - both buttermilk and buckwheat (my personal favorite), both done to perfection. Their sausage patties are also excellent.

We were a party of 5 for lunch. The fish sandwich was very good, so was the chili. The pecan and bacon waffle was unusual and very good. The downside of our visit? The waffle at $8 was really pricey. The drinks? When I am paying $2 for coffee, I expect it to be fresh and hot. It was warm... More

Dear Linda C, Thank you for the wonderful feedback on our food. Our Pecan & Bacon Waffle is definitely unusual and very delicious. As for our issues concerning the cold coffee and not being offered a refill, thank you as well for providing that feedback. We do try to maintain a level of customer service to each guest and I...

Based on reviews we came here for breakfast. Our waiter was prompt with a full pot of coffee. We are not sure the reason, but It took longer than expected for our food to arrive and we had finished off the coffee. It was worth the wait. The freshest and fluffiest biscuits and gravy, great sausage and eggs cooked perfectly.... More
