Quick service even during a busy lunch hour. I had passed by a number of times but my timing made this my lunch stop this week. First time visitor and was pleased that though it was packed for the lunch hour there was a single seat at one of the small booths. I was amazed at the variety of offerings... More

Order breakfast! On most recent visit I tried the meatloaf. Oy. Tasteless mystery meat. Was that gravy from a can? One coffee, one meatloaf special, one gyro and fries was $22 and change. Stick with eggs. They are safe. No bargains here.

First about the title -- as I was checking out this morning, the athletic, middle-age gentleman cashing out and I laughed over confusion of if I wanted a receipt or not (I didn't but he printed one anyhow, thinking I said yes). We laughed. He stuck out his hand, a firm handshake and said, "Hi, I'm Benny" Thanks for coming... More

Sometimes you just want hash browns and Benny's is a good place to go for dinner favorites. I had an omelet which was huge and a side of hash browns. Others at the table liked their selections. Busy but a solid choice for greasy spoon breakfast fare.

Granted, this is our 'go to' favorite when we're in town to visit our family, but we always enjoy ourselves. A visit to Ann Arbor without breakfast at Benny's is an incomplete visit! The owner and his warm and capable staff, along with ample portions, yummy Greek options if you choose, all day breakfast, the sort of "old fashioned" family... More

This morning was my first time there and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and wonderful service. I really liked that they have "mini" plates with an egg, french toast or small pancakes and bacon or sausage for those of us who aren't super hungry. The owner made it a point to introduce himself when he overheard me saying that I... More

Here for a hockey tournament staying at nearby Marriott Courtyard. Looked up TA for breakfast places and saw some nice reviews. Really had no cons regarding this restaurant. Perhaps if you are with a big party, it will be a while to get seated as it was a steady influx of patrons. A party of 7 college students had to... More

Heard a lot about this place...listed as they place to go for breakfast in Ann Arbor for breakfast. I thought it was just ok. Pretty generic really. Panckaes (which I went there specifically for) were overly dense. I prefer lighter, fluffier style pancakes. The syrup is served cold and is siting at the table. Any good breakfast place will serve... More

Fine food, friendly service and low prices are the hallmarks here. My breakfast this morning was corned beef hash, eggs, grits, toast and coffee for less than nine bucks. That is a bargain. Steady stream of patrons might mean someone agrees with me. I would definitely return.

We enjoyed breakfast here twice. The waitresses were good about refilling our coffee cups. We would eat here again.
