Service can be good to poor, pizza can be pretty darn good or pretty bad, very inconsistent service and food quality. Cleanliness is horrible, don't look too close at anything or you will see the filth everywhere. Bathrooms ... gross, floors... gross, Ceiling etc. gross, kitchen I don't even want to see it. Until they do a through cleaning job... More

We were in Walker Mn. for a week and went to Benson's for lunch. Very nice place, the food and service was very good. If you are ever in that town stop there, they treat you very good.

I have eaten at Benson's over the past 20 years and often on the weekends in the evening. Over the past year I have seen a change in the quality of pizza. Last weekend I ordered a 16" sausage and extra cheese deep dish pizza. I was surprised when it arrived to see it also had pepperoni on it. The... More

And not so much the innards of the pizza, this is your place. Anywhere from 1 to 2 inches at the edge of every slice is crust, and since the pizza is cut like pizza pie, every piece is predominantly crust. We had them bring two extra sides of sauce (we depleted one and needed another) and created our own... More

Enough said best pizzas in town and probably Cass County, great bar with plenty of tv's to watch a football game.

First time diners, due to Advisor reviews. We agree completely with the 41/2 star rating. Wonderful waitress and quick service despite the large crowd. I recommend the Reuben and my wife enjoyed the pizza special. Atmosphere was warm and inviting. Well done

We went here on a Friday night in January. We had a large group of hockey players and Parents @ 25. We had pizza. It was very good! Atmosphere was nice too. Now here's the negative- and it's a pretty big one. Our waitress who was very nice.. Didn't want to "share" her large group tip. It took her forever... More

We stopped by for lunch and ordered a Reuben sandwich $8 and bowl of chili $5. The Reuben was on beautiful oversized dark rye - so the sandwich was significantly larger than expected and the taste was equally fabulous! Served with homemade potato chips, yum, and a perfect sour kosher pickle. We also opted for side slaw and it was... More

One of our favorites to eat when we travel up north. I'd like to try something else on the menu but we always order pizza because it's so good!
