Cheap and cheerful Mexican on West Magnolia

Found this place by chance on a busy Saturday night after being underwhelmed by the other options on West Magnolia St. Complimentary soup was okay but perhaps an acquired taste. Fajitas very good, but chicken in enchiladas bit too strong-tasting. Would have liked more vegetarian or fish options... read more

Found this place by chance on a busy Saturday night after being underwhelmed by the other options on West Magnolia St. Complimentary soup was okay but perhaps an acquired taste. Fajitas very good, but chicken in enchiladas bit too strong-tasting. Would have liked more vegetarian or fish options. Cheerful service. Beer and wine cheap compared to elsewhere. Recommended cheap eat.

This was pretty average Mexican food. The service was okay, but nothing really stood out to us. We probably wouldn't seek this place out again.

Benitos has been a neighborhood favorite for many years on the southside of Fort Worth. The consistent food, friendly atmosphere and welcoming service make it a great place. They have a large number of frequent and regular guests which illustrates Benitos stands the test of time. The menu is fairly sizable for a Mexican restaurant. The enchiladas, chili rellenos, shredded... More

Benitos has been a fixture in the hospital district for 30 plus years. The food is Mexican but not Tex-Mex. No complimentary chips & salsa but lots of delicious appetizers and meals. Service is friendly and prompt. This is a true Ft. Worth hole in the wall secret that stays quite busy most of the time. Great drinks and reasonable... More

Named as the 2014 “hole in the wall” by Fort Worth magazine, this is the Tex-Mex others should strive to be. Excellent selections, with quality ingredients, served quickly make this one of my all time favorite lunch spots. Friendly service and bottomless ice tea top it off. This is not a pretentious place – just good Mexican food at affordable... More

Long known as a local fav in Fort Worth, Benito's selections are rich and tasty and do not disappoint. We met our nephew for a late lunch On New Years weekend. From the chunky cheesy sauce for the appetizer, to my rich savory beef tacos w cheese in the mini fried taco shell (all I can say, YUM!) it was... More

Been here twice recently. First time was excellent. Good n cold beer, great homemade salsa and entrees. Service was friendly even though we closed out the place. Second time the beer, salsa and service were as before. The queso flameado was a cheap, oily mess and my signature pork tamale was as tasteless as it was unnapealing to the eye.... More
