Great lunch place, especially for Mexican food

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.

There are few options in Deming; Benji's is one of the best. The food is freshly made and very reasonable. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is welcoming. While we were there a group of four "good ole boys" were regaling each other with tall tales in the rear - obviously this is a popular local spot. Wednesdays Benji's... More

Located in what looks to be a old sonic drive in. We stopped here because it seemed like something a little out of the ordinary. The staff was friendly and made sure our drinks and chips were full. The food was good especially the enchiladas. Make sure you stop by and check it out.

We stopped here for lunch while camping at the nearby state park. Very friendly, casual atmosphere. As another reviewer noted, the food is fresh, nice portions at a reasonable price and delicious. It was very crowded when we first arrived (a good sign for a local eatery) and service was friendly, quick and accommodating. Great lunch and definitely worth a... More

A break from camp food took us to Benjis. We were greeted by two friendly waiters and served our meals in short order. The owner/chef smiled out at us as we paid out bill. I felt welcome and enjoyed a good meal.

We ate here based on Trip Ãdvisor reviews. We were greeted by an extremely friendly, courteous young man. They served chips and salsa, as do most Mexican restaurants. Tasty, and they refilled it. I ordered burritos, my wife got Chile rellenos. Meal came promptly and was delicious. Generous portions and very reasonable prices. The young man checked couple times how... More

We were looking for a place for lunch with our dog in this area of New Mexico. Saw some other reviews and thought we'd try it. The outside tables were under the old cover for curb service at the taken over Sonic Drive-In. That was perfect because it looked like rain. The waitress came out as soon as we sat... More
