They serve a flavor of the New Mexico food and some other delights like liver and onions. Friendly and helpful service. Always with smiles. They make us feel like we are visiting good friends every time we go. My favorite eatery in Deming.

My wife and I enjoyed a excellent breakfast this morning. She had the cheese enchiladas and very much enjoyed them. I had the bacon/cheese omelet. It may have been the best omelet I've ever had. The pan fried potatoes were also excellent.

Stopped in on our way to Tuscon and we were not disappointed. Huevos rancheros were delicious and the sausage cheese omelet was perfect. Ask fir green sauce to pour on the omelet. A must try in Deming

Need a lunch stop between Tucson and Santa Fe? Benji’s is your answer. We had tasty chicken tostados with an herb raspberry tea. Hit the spot and didn’t take long at all. The restaurant and rest rooms are very clean. Gracious wait staff.

Enjoyed dinner. Former drive-in now very good Mexican Restaurant. Food was plentiful and good for both my wife and I. Not the absolute best I’ve eaten, but would return here again and again if I lived here.
