“YUM!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We have been there many times. I have raved about this restaurant to many people. The prices are up there but all the meals have been worth it. We just have to remember not to eat all the food because there is way too much for one sitting.

“Everything delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Right from the ambiance of lovely woodwork and tasteful displays of art to the food delivered from the wood-fired oven, this restaurant was delightful. Friendly service, a tour of the establishment that was once a bank building, but now has the wood-fired oven in the old vault all added ot the dining pleasure. The food was inventive and delicious too.

“Best pizza ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We love pizza and this place is the place to go for home made, thin crust, wood fired pizza. We had the California which had spinach, sundried tomatoes, shrimp and pesto. We started with a spring salad with cranberry dressing and a caeser salad which were fresh and tasty. The wine selection was limited, but the choices were good. Service was friendly and fast. The restaurant is a converted bank building and the wood fired oven is in the old bank vault. The menu is small, but this ensures thing s are fresh and made from scratch. There were a couple of soups, beef choice, pork ribs, two pasta dishes, and of course the pizza menu. Since it was our anniversary we were treated to a complimentary piece of double chocolate cake. We live in a rural area, but Benny's is well worth the drive for the great food and friendly atmosphere!

“A Unique Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by this place. We were tired of the regular type of food so we decided to try something different. The Pizza menu is unique and very tasty. The limited menu changes by the day and is posted out front. The air conditioning was not working well, and the open fire cooking area made it very warm. This did not slow down the servers who were polite and efficient. A bit pricey, but not a bad value. Food quality was high.

“Such a Disappointment!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had been planning a really nice supper out to pay back a friend for looking after our house while we were away, and had heard about Benny's. So I phoned and made a reservation on a Sunday. When I called there was no mention that Sunday night is Mexican Buffet night. We were told when we arrived (an out of town destination) that we could not order off the menu. So we each ordered an overpriced Caesar and headed for the buffet. What it consisted of was hamburger fried up taco style, with the fixings for tacos, some kind of (tough) beef stir fry, and nacho chips with a few beans and a little cheese melted on top. To try and make up to our friend for the disappointing supper, we also ordered an overpriced dessert. We won't be back, Benny! If the person who took our reservation had just said that it was their Mexican Buffet night, we would have declined and gone another night. Apparently they do a nice job, when serving off their menu. I am not a complainer but felt it was worthwhile to warn people not to make Benny's a Sunday destination.
