We enjoyed this place often when we lived in the area, but have not been back in a very long time. We ordered our usual crispy rellenos which were great. We were very pleased that they were as good as they had been many years...More

Best margaritas and we like the carnitas and chili rellenos. Delicious guacamole too. We eat at Benny's at least once a month.

Over many years, we've dined at Benny's, but on our last trip to Denver, we were disappointed. After a long wait, a server appeared with water. She slammed down a glass in front of my wife, spilling water all over the menu and table. She...More
