Matzo ball soup EXCELLENT. Triple decker corned beef, salami and swiss with Russian dressing-EXCELLENT! Corned beef on Kaiser roll-EXCELLENT! Anytime we're in that area, we go to Benjie's. Their breakfasts are good, too!

Met a friend for lunch. Probably no one in the restaurant under 70. It was quite, and the menu selection was good. Food was good, but on the pricey side. Great place for retired people to eat.

Veryvery good food but not suited for a group to go. They cannot accommodate groups of more than 4. There were 6 of us and we were very cramped.

They serve breakfast,lunch and dinner. They have authentic Jewish dishes. Their sandwiches are piled high with meat and their pickles, as an appetizer, are delicious.

Apparently, this establishment has been here 50 years. I had not heard of it or been there until my neighbor, who was brought up in New York took me there. What a treat. The Pastrami sandwich was excellent and could be split by two. Try...More

I’ve always love to go to Benjie’s weather its breakfast or dinner. My favorite breakfast is the Deli omelette. For dinner I love their French Dip and cabbage soup!

The restaurant was very busy at 1 pm, which is a good sign. The food was very good, but a bit pricey to match the size of the sandwich. I got the Reuben, which was huge but it was $14.75. I would rather have less...More
