If you wanted a drink as well as dinner, there was not much to choose from on a Wednesday night in March. One restaurant was permanently closed, one closed because the help didn't show up, and another was already packed. But we were delighted with our experience at Megaly's! There were five of us and each had something different. The... More

Well my fault for remaining here after I saw the clientele was primarily gringo. I got shunted to the side and did not get any chips and salsa till the end. I needed to salsa to hide the horrendous excuse of a meatball soup

We stopped for a quick lunch on our way to Bisbee and we happy to find good food and the most friendly atmosphere. The owner was friendly and chatty and the salsas were just right for my gringo taste.

Being a local resident and liking Mexican food, we go to Magaly's several times per month (and have for years). It is authentic, good food. They have a good selection of menu items. The service is above average. We rarely have to wait for a table. I would have given 4 stars except that they recently raised their prices, but... More

First place I eat when I return to Benson after a couple of months in Canada which has mostly Noodle and Sushi houses. Magaly's is a local friendly Mexican restaurant. You can't go wrong on any choice of meal you choose. Casual, friendly, reasonably priced. You'll always be treated in a warm greeting. Good service.

This is a small restaurant in a quiet little town. It was clean and the service was good but the food is nothing special. There was not a lot of vegetarian choices other than saying I want the beef or chicken entree but hold the meat. They have specials which are good values.

I love Mexican food! I know that people's taste in Mexican food vary a lot! This Mexican food was just plain bland. I had the number 1 combo (Beef taco, Beef Tamale and a cheese enchilada). My wife had a chicken tostada with a side of guacamole. My wife is not a spicy food eater like I am, but she... More

The restaurant was very clean and the service was good, but the food was bland. I had the chicken tostadas and it was mostly lettuce. I had to dig for the chicken. The guacamole was pretty tasteless too. The pico de gallo was the only thing I had that was flavorful, so I used a lot.

We love this place for a good Mexican lunch. During the week they have specials for $6.99. They are what you would normally get off the menu so the meals are not smaller. The shredded beef taco salad is wonderful. Loaded with flavorful shredded beef. The chili rellenos are excellent. All the food is homemade including the salsas at this... More
