I love Benny's and will always go there. We continue to take out of town company there and they always want to go back. It is fun, fast and consistant food. A great place to go with a group of friends. The food is good, the marguarita's better. If you have not been go tonight. Sometimes there is a wait but you can hang at the bar and I have never had to wait for more than one marguarita. Love it!!

Best Mexican Food in Denver! Skip the menu, order the sloppy chicken burrito and you won't be disappointed!

This was a place that our conference group came to for Mexican food. It was all really tasty and I especially liked the margaritas here. The staff were super nice and helpful.

Benny's is a good place to take the family for Mexican food. Though the atmosphere is a little dark and crowded, they do have good food. The chicken taco has cubes of chicken, though I would prefer a pulled type and more moist. The crispy relleno is flour tortilla wrapped around a canned green chile. The green carne asada pork over the top is tasty and I think based on the sauce it could make a good burrito. The salsa was good and the chips were fresh and warm. They have Margarita's for $5 may be hard to beat.

We have gone here for years. It is also a favorite for my teacher friends and I to hang out. Benny's has above average margaritas, solid green Chile, good chile rellenos, good fish tacos. Great place for kids, nice patio. Service is good too. Bartenders are really nice.

The place was pretty crowded - I always take this for a good sign. Chips came pretty quickly as did the ice water - so far so good. Unfortunately, the chips and ice water were the only positives. The margaritas were watery, the fajitas flavorless, and the salsa as bland as a can of Campbell's tomato soup. I asked to waitress for some spicier sauce and brought back something just as bland. This is the sort of Mexican food I would expect to eat in Albania not in the heart of Denver. I can't for the life of me understand what all those people were doing there. I certainly would not repeat.

Benny's is one of our favorite mexican restaurants. They are located at 7th and Grant in downtown Denver. They have a parking lot on the west-side of Grant, just north of 7th. They offer a varied menu with several vegetarian dishes. They provide a non-smoking environment plus there is patio dining. The service is good and the wait staff is friendly. They offer combination meals and some pretty tasty sopapillas. Their margaritas are good too and can be ordered by the carafe!
