Benji's had everything a person could wish for in a restaurant. The service was excellent, friendly and fast. The place was very clean and well lit. They turned an old sonic into a Mexican food restaurant. My family and I ordered benji's nachos as an appetizer. The ingredients were fresh and the chips were, too. For entrees we chose shredded...

We stopped briefly and Deming and were advised by the Welcome Center food outdoor tables. I had tacos which were soft asado. My friend had the combination platter absolutely fantastic . we are from Santa Fe so we know good food. Kudos to our waiter Fernando who just graduated from Deming high school. Oh and don't forget their homemade pie

Atmosphere: The place looks like it used to be a Sonic type of restaurant. You pull in to the parking lot and it seems like someone on roller skates will pull up and give you menus, and chips & salsa. However, you walk in and there are about 8 tables to sit and eat. Nice and clean and with Mexican... More

My wife and I consulted TripAdvisor and tried this restaurant. It was very clean with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The food was very tasty and served in generous portions. We plan to return next time we're in Deming.

Great food personally made to your taste. The food reflects southwest tastes with just enough but not too much spice. If you want a little extra spice or chile, just ask. This is the place to eat and relax in Deming.

A favorite since its opening. Breakfast, Lunch - it doesn't matter - the food is freshly prepared to order and always delicious. For a parent with dementia, familiarity is important, and here we're treated like family - always with smiling warmth. Sparkling clean, fast, friendly service and fabulous Mexican and American food - well worth visiting

The locals recommended Benji's and we were glad they did. Very good Mexican food, although they also have good American food. The service is friendly and prompt.

This is a relatively new spot locally managed with a lot of care. Very clean and welcoming. The food is tasty and not expensive.
