My husband had the spicy shrimp alfredo, while I had the grilled pork chop with mashed potatoes, brown gravy & fried okra. Everything was hot & appeared fresh. There is Italian, Mexican & American food on the menu. We would... More

Everything tastes like it was frozen or out of a can. I am SHOCKED this place stays in business. Soup was Campbells and cold!

Baed on Trip Advisor we drove up to the front for breakfast. It is a bar and restaurant so we were concerned that there would be a smokey smell.

Food is average. Varied menu. About the only place in Alvarado with adequate seating for groups of 8 or more.

My friend and I went here based on a recommendation from our hotel desk clerk. The salsa is really good as were the chicken enchiladas. We decided to eat there a second night and had the Chicken and Shrimp Forrestt and it was good along with the bread.

Stopped in for dinner while visiting Alvarado. Benny's offers Mexican, Italian, and American food.... somewhat odd for any restaurant to offer all three. Nevertheless, my wife and I had the Mexican food and it was outstanding. Service was equally good. Highly recommend Benny's for lunch or dinner (don't know if they are open for breakfast).

Hubby had the down home chicken fried chicken meal. I had the grilled chicken with green beans and both were excellent. Complimentary hot bread and butter was yummy.

The dinner was excellent. It should have come with a side salad. The waitress was great and very attentive. I would drive here just for the Chicken Bella Vita.
