The staff is nice and friendly and the food is good and simple. I recommend it for a quick bite or a nice Mexican dish! We were driving by Deming on our way to Tucson and it was a fun stop along the way...

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
