The steak and eggs came with a really nice steak which they cooked perfectly. The BLT was one of the best ones I've eaten. Great vibe and friendly waitress.

When you see the menu, the title of my review will make sense. The delicious breakfast is why we come here, Roxie & the staff are why we keep coming back. Leo's Diner is the true gem in Downtown Benson. You need to see the Norman Rockwell re-enactment on the wall and the ol' skool jukeboxes in the booths (they... More

I went out of my way to find this place and was highly disappointed. I'm expecting some really good dinner food. The menu is really limited and the prices are way too high for say a hamburger. I ordered the special (3 cheese burger) and a cup of chili. The chili was cold and when I pointed it out it... More

Walking distant from our event. Ate there everyday. Treated so nicely and everyone could find something they liked! Very good food. Attentive service!

Found this place on Trip Advisor and wanted to try it out while in the Benson area. Decent food at a decent price. Expecially for Benson. It was a lot larger than I expected but it definitely was "dinner food". Nothing special but worth the visit. Try it out.

The place reminds me of an SNL skit, with the loud waitresses, juke boxes on the booth walls and mixed matched mugs. But, that's exactly what I love about it - nothing fancy- but, the food is sooooo good! Best over easy eggs with hashbrowns and pancake for $6!!! The menu says "small pancake". But, the pancake was the size... More

I figured out the last time I ate a meal in this space would have been in 1954 or 55. I lived in the Benson/Country Club neighborhood in those days, before relocating to Ohio, Colorado, Iowa, and then back to Omaha. The place itself shows it's been cleaned up and re-done a few times, but the ambiance and food, just... More

Unique diner in downtown Benson, NE that features terrific and very filling breakfast entrees. Spacious booths in back. Great hashbrowns and pancakes. Will return.

The food portions were small, the taste was decidedly average. The "Fantasy Island" was severely undersized, despite it being billed as the main attraction on the menu. There's not as much charm as Joe's and the servers are snappy and rude (busy restaurant is not an excuse for rude service). Bigger portions, cheaper prices, and friendlier staff are just a... More
