Benji's --- Deming Treat

Very good food. Outstanding service. We stopped after being on the road for about 3 hours and knew that we had about 3 more hours of travel ahead. We were thrilled at getting such good food and prompt service. The waitress served with efficiency could not have been any more friendly and... read more

Came to Benjis because of Trip Advisor. Didn't have high hopes when you saw the place but the service was outstanding. The "chef" even came out and checked on us, probably grandfather of son who with such care waited tables. Lots of locals enjoying it, but I thought the food just average. It is good but not exceptional. Portions seemed... More

Really good basic Mexican food. If you are in search of good down home done right Mexican food, Benji's will meet or surpass your expectations. While the dining room is small the service is quick and will get you in and out quickly. Both their red sauce and green sauce are good bets.

Benji's is the best Mexican food I have eaten. There were 4 in our lunch group, and all raved over their meal. Three of us ordered the combination plate with a beef taco (the tortilla was freshly made), cheese enchilada, a homemade tamale, and a chile relleno. Each plate was served with rice and retried beans. The guacamole was very... More

The food and the prices were both very attractive! We were a little hesitant as the restaurant was in an old drive in fast food building. However, the seating was more than adequate, the waitress was pleasant, the food was delicious, the price was very affordable and the Pecan pie was one of the best I have ever eaten.

We were traveling through deming and wanted a quick good lunch. Benji's provided just that. Surprised that it was in an old sonic but it had been repurposed quite nicely. Husband had chili rellenos and I had guacamole tostadas. The tostadas were light and refreshing on a hot summer day. Service and food was great. Glad to visit a truly... More

My father and I stopped here on our way from FL to AZ on I-10. We were greeted by a charming and kind young man who was our waiter as well. Great service and excellent food. Highly recommend!

The best home cooked Mexican food in Deming! The service can't be beat! The pancakes and the burritos for breakfast, and the best bowl of pasole for lunch or dinner in New Mexico! By far the best place to eat in Deming! Highly recommend stoping in if you're in the area!

Food was delicious and reasonably priced; service was great too! It's nice to have a close-to-the-highway alternative that's not fast food.
