Even with all the great reviews, this place is underrated. The outside is nondescript, an old repurposed drive-in, do not be put off by this! The inside is bright and clean with custom wood benches and tables. There are two televisions but thankfully the sound was muted, thankfully so that I may enjoy the quietly playing Mexican music in the background. Why do you come to a restaurant to eat. But I MUST mention the service. The young man was attentive, polite, professional without being overbearing I only regret that I did not catch his name. The food was cheap, plentiful, nicely arranged and oh yes... delicious. Based on the reviews I elected to get the chile rellenos, two nicely battered and lightly crisp with beans, rice and 3 corn tortillas. The piece-de-resistance was the homemade flan. Benji's may be an hour from home but it's worth it and I look forward to my next visit.

Deeming isn’t known for wonderful food, but Benji’s rocks! The food was great (my husband said his chili rellenos were the best he’s had), service was friendly & efficient, and the place was spotless. We’ll be back.

We ate dinner here recently because of all of the glowing reviews on this site. The comments about how great the service is are right on target. But the food did not live up to its reviews here. The included tortilla chips appeared to be homemade. They also were thick and cold. I love cheese enchiladas and order them whenever I can. These were certainly edible but not anything special. I make better carnitas. I suspect I would have liked the meal more had my expectations been more realistic.
