Very good.

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

Our travels included an overnight stop in Deming New Mexico and while several restaurants recommended sounded good they did not have outdoor seating and too hot in summer to leave your dog in the car. Impending thunder storms prohibited us from leaving him at the hotel - he's afraid, so based on reviews of Benjis I thought we'd give it... More

Found this little mom & pop place just off the interstate. The seating and decor were nice and the restrooms were clean. The food was above average and priced right. The service is excellent and friendly. This is a must stop eatery.

I am now eating/finishing up the 1st of 2 quarts of THE BEST POSOLE stew I have ever eaten in my life that I picked up @ Benji's while in Town yesterday. Lunatic County Locals, if you haven't tried Benji's foods, you are missing out on The Best Home Made Mexican Foods in the area. The Best... Need I say... More
