I make a habit of stopping in every few weeks for their fried chicken liver. Taste just like Grandma used to make

This diner has been in Downtown Shawnee forever and is still producing their mediocre diner food today.

Benton's Cafe is a true throwback to the most wonderful mom and pop type cafe's of the 50's and 60's. Good food, great breakfast served anytime. Portion sizes leave you stuffed, and their homemade biscuits and gravy is to die for!

We ate lunch at Benton's today. My wife had the pork chop lunch and I had thd chicken fried steak lunch. Both meals came with a salad, mashed potatos and a vegetable. They also served home made cornbread and home made roll. This place is a place out of time that will take you back to when you knew you... More

The food is always just like a Sunday dinner at home. Food is excellent, facility is clean, pies are the best & waitstaff are friendly. It's quick to get a home-cooked meal, but you aren't rushed as soon as you finish your meal...you can sit and visit. Owners are good businesswomen who know how to cook.

They don't make them like this anymore. I always get the lunch special. It's just like I remember restaurants as a kid; meat, vegetable, potato and salad all on one plate. None of that separate plate for your salad nonsense. Rolls and cornbread too. Finish with a slice of pie if you can handle it. Waitresses are always great.

This place has been operating for a long time. I highly recommend their made fresh daily pies. Their open faced hot steak or hot beef is what I usually have for dinner.

Benton's continues on in a section of town that has been left behind by shopping malls. Their great food and friendly service reminds be of days gone by.

The food is really good but the prices are too high. They also charge you per glass of your drink unless it's water or tea. I mean, really, what century are we in again? They don't have a kids selection so it appears that they only want the elderly generation. Well, they got it so I guess they are getting... More
