Delicious!!!! The guacamole was the BEST I have ever had! I am a fan of Mole - the waiter and hostess recommended the Chicken Mole with rice, beans, & tortilla soup. This could have been the best Mexican meal I've eaten.

The margaritas at Benito's are outstanding, as is their pico. The atmosphere is cool, and the service is excellent. The night we were there, some high school students were there as the mariachi band, and that was very cool to see. Entrees were so-so (hence the title of my review.) I had the chili rellenos, which was massive, but not... More

Good example of Tex-Mex food with generous portions. Sangria was a bit average though. Service nothing exceptional. On a bright side, we were happy to be fed at a very late hour of the day when most people were about to leave. Thanks

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
