“One of the best around”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Those who rated the food here as bland have NO clue what true Mexican food is. True Mexican food is NOT TexMex or New Mexican with tons of heat that rips your tongue out and leaves you tasteless. TRUE Mexican food has some heat, but one can taste all the subtle flavors of Mexico. To that end. Magalys is a winner. Their red chile for instance comes with beef and no beans, not TexMex ground beef & beans. The flavors are great. The service is attentive and while the interior of the restaurant is reminiscent of Rte 66 days, it is clean. It is THE favorite of the locals & snow birds in the Benson area. The parking lot is paved by the way and the pot holes recently repaired. The taco salad is great and huge, the guacamole is tasty and the salsa is NOT chunky but can be ordered either hot or mild and is very good. The menu is classic Mexican Cantina style and NOT high end Mexican dining. But what they serve is very good and plentiful. It is one of my two favorites for Mexican food in the Benson area.

“First time for Mexican Food”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

My husband and I tried Mexican food for the first time. My husband had the enchilada and chimichanga? and really enjoyed his meal. I had a salad with beef, I enjoyed the beef rolls in the salad but did not like the taste of the beef.

“Satisfying”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

I go quite often to Magaly's. The salsa and chips good, salsa a bit hot but they will bring out mild to intermingle...love their cheese crisps, especially the salsa, enjoy their cheese enchilada's, taco's so so, rice and beans so so as well. Prices are very reasonable. If your still hungry try their flam, it's delicious! It's a very busy place especially after church on Sundays. Servers are fast and friendly. Best Mexican food in Benson....

“One of the best”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This is some of the best Mexican food in the southwest. Prices are reasonable and the service is fast and the customer is treated with courtesy. We go here often and heartily recommend it to all.
