Best Chiles Rellenos and the prices are cheap! Stopped by during our travel, perfect for a meal on the road. Portions are not large, which was exactly what we wanted, and the prices were crazy cheap! It's like stepping back in time with the look...of the restaurant and the prices, looks like it used to be a drive in restaurant, we were confused at first. Service was attentive, 1 server was working, he was engaging and nice to talk with. Worth stopping by!More

We were greeted by the most delightful, friendly waiter. He was prompt and helpful. Biscuits and gravy, cheese enchiladas with green chile, chorizo and eggs were all very yummy. Freshly sliced breakfast potatoes were delicious. Be sure and stop. Exceptional!

They serve a flavor of the New Mexico food and some other delights like liver and onions. Friendly and helpful service. Always with smiles. They make us feel like we are visiting good friends every time we go. My favorite eatery in Deming.

Don’t let the exterior of the place turn you away. The inside is cute and clean. The food is good home style Mexican at great prices.

My wife and I enjoyed a excellent breakfast this morning. She had the cheese enchiladas and very much enjoyed them. I had the bacon/cheese omelet. It may have been the best omelet I've ever had. The pan fried potatoes were also excellent.

We've never cared for fast food, so we always opt for the local favorites. We stop here at Benji's when traveling on Interstate 10 near Deming. In Deming, this restaurant is an old Sonic at the west end of town and on the main drag....Easy on/off from I-10. Service is good, food always delicious. We usually get the green chicken enchiladas, tacos, or gorditas. With delicious chips and salsa to compliment any meal, there's is some of the best I've had. You won't be disapponted.More

chicken flautas were excellent, hot and served with sour cream and guac. Arrived nice and hot. Could have gone a little more on seasoning, but otherwise excellent. Hubs had the chili relleno plate and he commented that they were very good - not drowning in...batter like most places. Portions were a bit on the small side, but quality rather than quantity and price was great. We will return as I'm a Deming resident.More

Stopped in on our way to Tuscon and we were not disappointed. Huevos rancheros were delicious and the sausage cheese omelet was perfect. Ask fir green sauce to pour on the omelet. A must try in Deming

Need a lunch stop between Tucson and Santa Fe? Benji’s is your answer. We had tasty chicken tostados with an herb raspberry tea. Hit the spot and didn’t take long at all. The restaurant and rest rooms are very clean. Gracious wait staff.
