Love to go here and sit outside (no inside). The portions are big and the taste of the brisket is a little sweet for me but, still good texture and tender. BBQ is like wine: the best ones are the ones you like so, to each his own but, if you want to get rustic, sit down and have a... More

We ate breakfast at Benny's on Sunday morning. It has a small outdoor seating area. The food was good. I had a brisket breakfast burrito. Very good!

We stopped here on our way to Hyatt Regency Lost Pines. So glad we did. The sliced brisket sandwich is stacked with delicious brisket! So filling! Wish they offered BBQ sauce on the side because we like ours saucy but even without, it was great!

We had the chopped beef, freshly made and great flavor. Sandwich buns were fresh. Prices were really good - cheap eats. One unique side order - cold spicy corn - great idea for a picnic and very tasty. Want to return to try their breakfast tacos.

You must stop by. They offer amazing night and delicious breakfast tacos. They are overstuffed and priced right. They offer menudo on Sundays. There's a daily special each day. The Family Pack is a great value - 2lbs of meat and 2 large sides. They offer a small covered outdoor dining area with restrooms.

The food was delicious. Atmosphere is extremely casual. Busy street which is hard to cross. Take out available.

Don't let the little shack like look scare you off. Its right off of 71 but the BBQ and the meats are just very very very heavenly yum yum yum. Almost just work the drive to get out of Austin for a taste. The prices were very good too.

A good choice to grab some BBQ to take back and eat while sitting around the Lost Pines Resort. It can be busy at lunch.

Benny's is the ol-time BBQ "stand" down to the ground. Order thru the window and take away or eat under the covered patio - lots of tables. No inside dining. Chopped beef sandwich, turkey leg, BBQ Beef Ribs oh my oh my!! Beside Texas Highway 71 West, about 5 miles west of the town of Bastrop - on the way... More
