Deming has a couple of Mexican restaurants with good ratings. We decided to eat at Benji's because it is focused on Mexican food rather than fancy wine and beer selections. And we were not disappointed: We selected our own combination from the a la carte...More

Friendly staff, fast service and great food. We've been traveling across I-10 and this has been the best Mexican food we've come across and it's easy access off the Interstate. If I make it that way again I would certainly eat there once more!

Friendly service, easy access, good food. The prices are reasonable. We especially like their flavorful soups. There is a full menu. I had a BLT and my husband a grilled chicken salad. Delicious food and very satisfied.

First time at Benji's and not disappointed. Just ten tables so it could be tough to get one at times but when you do enjoy. Great staff, great food and good prices. Try the combo plate.

Wow. Deliciousness times two! 'Mexican' food tastes different wherever you are. This small mom and pop restaurant sure delivered big time. We asked several locals for the best Mexican food in town and you can tell this is among the favorite here in Deming. So...More
