We had been here many, many years ago and had the "gringo" rellenos, chile rellenos wrapped in a wonton wrapper and deep fried. On this return visit we were not disappointed. They still had them and they were phenomenal. The place is looking a little rough around the edges and is badly in need of a refresh/remodel. Rest of the... More

Been to Benny's several times. Really like the atmosphere and you can sit outside and the pricing is very reasonable. The quantity and quality are consistent. Had an issue with the kitchen last night as they got 1 order completely wrong and forgot an addition to another. They corrected the issue, but by the time they got the order right... More

Over many years, we've dined at Benny's, but on our last trip to Denver, we were disappointed. After a long wait, a server appeared with water. She slammed down a glass in front of my wife, spilling water all over the menu and table. She didn't even notice until I told her she had made a mess. A desultory apology... More

They serve a 1 liter of Margarita! Great food. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Chili reanos is really good. Shredded Beef chimichanga is incredible. Mexican steak is great, too! Location was alright. There's a parking lot across the street that kind of hard to find but is dedicated to this place.

Everything here is great. I've never had a bad meal. Staff are great, especially Mike and Alejandra. Margaritas are also the best!! Eat here on a regular basis.

Good food and a large menu selection. Very moderately priced. Service is always quick and courteous. Nothing stands out as better than other Mexican restaurants.

I used to love the Benny's and frequented this local favorite when I lived blocks away; good food, big drinks, and mucho fun. Now ten years removed, I still do. However, my wife and I recently decided to stop in for a late lunch (2:30pm). Not much has changed, it looks the same. Food was still good as always; chips... More

Still one of my favorites, but they have gone downhill. Food not as special as it used to be. Tonight my taco was tiny like Taco Bell and the cheered was not all fresh but melted on my chili rellenos. I always thought theirs were number one, but not tonight. Never go with a large group. They can't handle it... More

I went to Benny's with my extended family on a recent return to Denver (after 7 years away). I love Denver's Mexican food and especially love the green chili. It was a treat to go to Benny's and to expose my kids to Mexican food for the first time. We all had combo platters with tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. We... More

The food is good and the drinks are great! We love to meet our friends at this restaurant and have a fun night. They serve both white and red Sangria, and all their food sauces are yummy.
