Good food and a large menu selection. Very moderately priced. Service is always quick and courteous. Nothing stands out as better than other Mexican restaurants.

I used to love the Benny's and frequented this local favorite when I lived blocks away; good food, big drinks, and mucho fun. Now ten years removed, I still do. However, my wife and I recently decided to stop in for a late lunch (2:30pm)....More

Still one of my favorites, but they have gone downhill. Food not as special as it used to be. Tonight my taco was tiny like Taco Bell and the cheered was not all fresh but melted on my chili rellenos. I always thought theirs were...More

I went to Benny's with my extended family on a recent return to Denver (after 7 years away). I love Denver's Mexican food and especially love the green chili. It was a treat to go to Benny's and to expose my kids to Mexican food...More
