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

Have visited Benny's a number of times. Each visit has provided a good meal and pleasant service at a very affordable price. Do not expect fancy just clean and comfortable.

First time at Benji's and what a nice surprise. It's the old Sonic building and doesn't look like much from the outside. The place is small inside but nice and clean. Our waiter was great and made sure my husbands glass was always full of tea! They served us plenty and it was delicious! Will definitely go back!

This restaurant seems to have a lot of potential, so I will probably be back and see how it has fared in a few months. I thought the beans and rice were lacking in flavor; nothing bad, just nothing memorable. The gorditas were pretty good and I was pleased to see them on the menu because not a lot of... More

On a recent trip through Deming with our 40lb therapy dog, Benji's was the only Mexican restaurant that we could find with dog-friendly outside seating. The waitress very kindly brought menus etc out to us and remained very attentive to our needs. It was an enjoyable meal. We plan to make a number of day trips over to Deming and... More

We stopped at Benji's in Deming at breakfast time. It's located in a former A&W type drive-in, but the waitress doesn't rollerskate out to take the order ;-) The breakfast chile relleno with egg in a fresh tortilla was outstanding! Benji's had the ability to keep it simple and very delicious, without over working it. A very satisfying and inexpensive... More
