Found this gem onTripAdvisor, and the reviews were spot on. Stopped here for breakfast traveling through Cortez. Very clean place with excellent friendly service. Breakfast was reasonable, good size portions, and very good. We will definitely be back!

We've eaten at Benny's many times . We always stop in when we visit family in the four corners. We love going there for breakfast or lunch. Always friendly service and reasonably-priced, good food.

One of the few restaurants open on a Sunday and I was very glad we stopped! I had a skillet with chicken and green chile and my husband had a pork green chile burrito. Service was excellent and we will return!

Stopped on our way through the food was excellent. The service was excellent. I had chilli verde omelet and my husband had the chorizo omelet, lots of food and well worth the money and stop. Breakfast barely hit $20.
