We stopped at this restaurant for lunch. We had steak fajitas and they were excellent. The meat was very tender and spiced perfectly. Prices were reasonable and the service was good. We would definitely visit this restaurant again

Stopped here for breakfast on our way home from Telluride. Lots of choices, large portions. Hubby loved the Green Chili Omelette. I had sausage and eggs....came with 2 hamburger sized sausage patties plus hash browns & bread choice. Will definitely plan on stopping next year

We walked in unannounced with our group of 20 during a family reunion. The front was totally packed but amazingly they had room for us immediately in the back which was equally nice. Delicious and cheap breakfast including a lot of southwest flavor. I had huevos rancheros. Kids meals were excellent. Coffee was good.

What a great little place to go for breakfast. The cinnamon French toast was great be sure to order the full order. The Benny's omelet was also very good. We would stop here again.

We were delighted with our breakfasts, the friendly service, and the fresh, sunny atmosphere at Beny's. We had ham & eggs and a machaca breakfast for under $20 that held us until dinner. It's close to the main road but worth going out of your way.

We had breakfast recently at Beny's, and overall our experience was very good with one exception. My wife enjoyed her cheese & avocado omelet while I enjoyed my eggs and hash browns. So far, so good. What bothered us was the strange tasting toast - both the rye and wheat toast, so it must have been tainted butter. Even 5-star... More

Quirky model car decor and dandy diner food. My 2 egg, sausage patty and potato provided 2 meals for me ( at my dainty 225 lbs ). Th sausage patties looked 1/4 pound burgers. Same for my wife's breakfast.
