Benji's has excellent enchiladas, which makes me happy, and they serve breakfast all day, which makes my partner happy. Although Benji's is small, the wait staff is very efficient and friendly. We have lunch there often.

Mexican food that's freshly made, in a space that's not your usual diner, plus tasty churros for dessert... That's a real treat. I've eaten here several times during visits to Deming, and I'll keep going back.

A long drive...Albuquerque to Tucson...deserves a nice break for lunch, and we found it at Benji's. Located in what appears to be an old drive in, this place is as clean as anywhere we've been, with friendly service that would be hard to beat. For once my wife and I chose to not share, each ordering a la carte. I... More

Super place to feed the family. We were impressed by the friendliness of the staff. Food was good, not superb, but the casual atmosphere and staff made our experience absolutely wonderful!

We stopped at Benji's for lunch while on a road trip through New Mexico. We were at first doubtful because it looks like a converted Sonic drive in, however there is plenty of seating inside. Everyone in our foursome was very happy with their meal. My chile rellenos were some of the best that I've ever tasted. We heartily recommend... More

Based on Trip Advisor, selected this place for dinner. Seems to be a converted Sonic Drive In or the like. Nice surprise when you walk in. Clean, pleasant looking. Nice selection of dishes. Food was good. Nothing exceptional but good basic Mexican food. I would go back. Breakfasts look very good. I will try that next time through town. I... More
