“Great Food, Clean with good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

We ate there August 18. The place was spotless and the service was great. Large selection of all kinds of food. Some of the best Fried Green Tomatoes i have had. 1 of the few places in the south that serves Pepsi. You won't be disapointed here.

“Food, family & friendly”

My family & I went to Ben's. We loved their food (southern comfort) & everyone that worked there was super nice & helpful. Prices weren't high either. Love the whole atmosphere

“DIRTY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Rarely have a problem with the food but the place especially the CARPET need a MAJOR cleaning. If the floor is that nasty I wonder about the kitchen.

Dear Hubert T.,

We do appreciate your response to our facilities. We can assure you that our carpets are now cleaned by a professional weekly. Nightly, our kitchen is properly cleaned and our health inspection reports will support that. We apologize that our restaurant did not uphold to your cleanliness. If you do come in again, you will definitely see the improvement. We hope to see you again.

“Not for me”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

My husband and I chose this restuarant expecting great food based on the previous reviews listed. What a disappointment. The omelets tasted very bland and the biscuits were cold and perhaps made from a mix. We will not return here.

“Super family restaurant ,not a chain.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

We noticed the number of cars that were parked here as we drove into town & decided to give it a try on our way home. Very clean with lots of space inside and out. We had sandwich platters that were both very nice. I was able to sub the fries to a vegetable of my choice. Our plates were piping hot & quick. When we checked out ,we're given the senior discount without asking (sweet)!
