Menu has a good variety to choose from. Eggplant parmesan, taco salad, and enchiladas are all very good!

Nobody can do American, Mexican and Italian well. My enchiladas were bland and husband's catfish was as well. Staff was friendly and bread was good, but not worth going back for.

We enjoyed eating here. The waitresses were friendly & accommodating to my disabled husband. The homemade bread was very good. My husband had the spicy shrimp alfredo, while I had the grilled pork chop with mashed potatoes, brown gravy & fried okra. Everything was hot...More

Everything tastes like it was frozen or out of a can. I am SHOCKED this place stays in business. Soup was Campbells and cold!

My friend and I went here based on a recommendation from our hotel desk clerk. The salsa is really good as were the chicken enchiladas. We decided to eat there a second night and had the Chicken and Shrimp Forrestt and it was good along...More

Stopped in for dinner while visiting Alvarado. Benny's offers Mexican, Italian, and American food.... somewhat odd for any restaurant to offer all three. Nevertheless, my wife and I had the Mexican food and it was outstanding. Service was equally good. Highly recommend Benny's for lunch...More
