We stopped here for Authentic Belizean food after a trip to Xunantunich. The food was amazing! Service was very good. It wasn't too crowded, but we came early as we heard it's a popular location to eat.

We are nearing the end of our trip in Belize, and the Pibil at Benny's Kitchen is still our favorite meal. Super good pork served with 5 handmade corn tortillas and Belizean rice and beans...very filling and delicious, haven't seen it anywhere else in Belize. And the rice is amazing. We later learned that the rice is cooked in a... More

We were take to Benny's by a local for lunch. The food was fabulous. The people were very friendly. Of course if you have been to Belize you find this almost everywhere. I think this was the cheapest place we ate, but the food and portions did not reflect this.

We had 2 meals at Benny's which were both very good. Food is fresh and well cooked. Do try the BBQ if it's on the days menu. Very clean place ptronised by both locals and tourists. Can be a bit slow if there is a big tourist group in.

I had the pibil, a pulled pork tortilla. The pork could have been better, but the tortilla and guac blew my socks off!

We went o Benny’s kitchen after touring Xunantunich. It was recommended by the guide as good place to eat. I’m glad we asked for a recommendation. This was the best food we ate the entire week we were in Belize. We searched the country the following days looking for empanadas and tostadas, with little to no success. If we did... More
