This is our new favorite restaurant in Deming. The chips and salsa were very good. For our entrees we got the Carne Asada tacos and the Grilled Chicken Salad (not on the menu, but they said they could make it). The salad was excellent. The...More

Friendly staff, fast service and great food. We've been traveling across I-10 and this has been the best Mexican food we've come across and it's easy access off the Interstate. If I make it that way again I would certainly eat there once more!

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.

We found Benji's restaurant to be exactly what we were looking for. small, but perfect. delicious breakfast omelet and quiet atmosphere. Excellent service. Only small request would be better stronger coffee.

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.
