Friendly service, easy access, good food. The prices are reasonable. We especially like their flavorful soups. There is a full menu. I had a BLT and my husband a grilled chicken salad. Delicious food and very satisfied.

First time at Benji's and not disappointed. Just ten tables so it could be tough to get one at times but when you do enjoy. Great staff, great food and good prices. Try the combo plate.

Shredded beef in burrito was over cooked and dry...but good flavor despite. Chili Relleno was too mild and not enough flavor. Salsa was tasty but quite hot. Food either was bland or too spicy.

We stopped for lunch on our way through Deming. Two great meals, and directions to a good supermarket (Peppers) and we were on our way to the museum and a State Park.

Located in a converted drive-through, Benji's is right across the street from the Comfort Inn. We ate breakfast here a couple times, and wished we could have gone back (they were closed Thanksgiving and the day after). Delicious and flavorful, fresh food ... spiced properly. Try the chilaquiles or huevos rancheros.

Stopped by for something to eat. The staff is VERY friendly and welcoming. The meal was delicious. We had the tacos with carne asada & the carnitas. The foods was plentiful and delicious! Chips and salsa was also very good. We will come again.
