“Texas sized breakfast tacos!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Visited this morning for breakfast and ordered two breakfast tacos: brisket and potato/egg.

The cook started making the eggs when I ordered and the place smelled delicious. The taco was great in that every inch of the tortilla was covered in delicious substance. I had to hold it with my hand wide open so one taco per person is ample! The cooked-right-in-front-of-you eggs picked up the flavors of the potatoes which were nice and soft. Perfection!

The salsa is hot (spicy) and flavorful.

The brisket taco was packed with meat and topped with a little pico. This isn't a normal breakfast taco offering so I'd choose something different next time. We just wanted to try their brisket.

The total for the two tacos overflowing was less than $6.00!

“Great down-home barbecue, great prices, friendly staff”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

My family stopped here for lunch on the way back to Austin. We had hoped to eat at another place in Smithville but they had closed by the time we arrived. So we continued on down Hwy. 71, hoping for something else to pop up. Fortunately we saw Benny's and pulled in--best decision we made all day! It's a small, family-run place with a covered outdoor space for eating. Extensive menu for such a small place and everything we had was delicious! Brisket, chopped beef, cole slaw, pinto beans, pork--everything we tried was authentic Texas BBQ. Would be good for takeout too; we saw several people pick up large bags of food in the short time we were there. Can't wait to go again.

“Three BBQ joints within two miles of each other...”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

...but Benny's is a treat. Old-school setup with basic seating (picnic table) and business cards, photos in the wall - covered in years of BBQ smoke but that's what makes it authentic! Haha. Friendly, busy staff and a lot of food for the money. Huge menu, brisket, pork, chopped beef, chicken and often turkey legs! Don't let the tiny building fool you, there's a lot to offer! Not really enough room to sit and enjoy your food but it'll be plenty hot to take to home or office. Good eats!
