“What happened????”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

5 years ago this place was a cool place to go and have a beer, eat some good food and listen to some music. Not any more. Horrible service and food and nobody smiles that works there. Doesn't seem like any body really wants to be there. Bring back the old Benson's and the fun.

“New owners with the same old time charm”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

The new owners of Benson's have really really raised the bar! Great atmosphere in historic downtown Salida Colorado. Stop by for a burger and a drink and check out the new-old digs! The great patio is now all non-smoking! Like a breath of fresh air.

“Great food night out at Benson's while on man ski trip”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

Great time at Benson's. Ate at the bar at the kitchen. Enjoyed the show. Kitchen was slammed yet they were putting out good product and having fun too. Calamari app perfect. I got the chicken risotto which was excellent. Other friend got the del mar and that was as expected also. The killer meal though was the beef stroganoff that was just off the charts. Great wine list and decent drinks and beer selection. Salida is a cool artsy town. cool vibes / no attitude. And only 2 hours to Wolf Creek which is the best ski in Colorado. Great halfway point.
