Located in a converted drive-through, Benji's is right across the street from the Comfort Inn. We ate breakfast here a couple times, and wished we could have gone back (they were closed Thanksgiving and the day after). Delicious and flavorful, fresh food ... spiced properly. Try the chilaquiles or huevos rancheros.

Stopped by for something to eat. The staff is VERY friendly and welcoming. The meal was delicious. We had the tacos with carne asada & the carnitas. The foods was plentiful and delicious! Chips and salsa was also very good. We will come again.

The staff is nice and friendly and the food is good and simple. I recommend it for a quick bite or a nice Mexican dish! We were driving by Deming on our way to Tucson and it was a fun stop along the way...

Benji's has excellent enchiladas, which makes me happy, and they serve breakfast all day, which makes my partner happy. Although Benji's is small, the wait staff is very efficient and friendly. We have lunch there often.

Mexican food that's freshly made, in a space that's not your usual diner, plus tasty churros for dessert... That's a real treat. I've eaten here several times during visits to Deming, and I'll keep going back.
