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

Ordered torilla soup. Got a bowl of yellow water with some canned mixed veg (one lone pea) and so I avoid MSG and it was just msg broth. Took 30 minutes also. Enchilada plate was awful, sank into the plate. Maybe 5 tables we sat? All the staff looked terribly unhappy, phoning it in. A chain like taco diner would... More

We live in OKC and frequent the Fairmont district as we have family that lives there. Benito's is our favorite place to eat, drink, and just hang out. I dream of their Cocktel de Camaron Shrimp, it's to die for. The prices are great, the portion sizes are giant, and the service/experience are wonderful. We look forward to our trips... More

If you love goat cheese enchiladas and home made tortilla soup, you'll love Benito's !! Been going since early 80's perfect date or family place. Authentic (truly) Mexican food, all homemade. The margaritas are a MUST !!

This place isn't so bad, the prices are okay, and you do get plenty of food for your money. We ordered sopes to start, which take a while to make, and the waiter brought us soup while we waited so we wouldn't get too hungry. The food was nice, I wouldn't say there was anything wrong with it. It wasn't... More

I read local reviews that said this place was good.... they were way wrong! The pork tamale had no flavor whatsoever and everything needed salt. The dried out Spanish rice and refried beans were both subpar. The only thing that worked for us was the salsas. Overpriced for such bad food! If you're in that area, try Magnolia Cheese Company...
