This was my first time at Mr. Benny's in Mokena and my worst experience at a steak house. I had checked there menu before we went and the price range was $16.00 - $ 24.00 on the web, but when we arrived the prices where as high has $36.00. It was my birthday and my in-laws where treating we stayed expecting an excellent meal for this price. I ordered the Ladies Filet Mignon and when I cut into it. There was this very bad smell that came out of it. It smelled like dried blood. I called the waitress over and she called over the manager who was very rude, he did replace the steak but I had to wait and watch everyone else eat. The second steak was OK but not worth the $27.95.
It was as if the the steak had been frozen they defrosted it in the microwave and then placed it on the grill. It sure did not taste fresh. I usually order my steak Medium Rare and when I cut into my steak it is red and pink, this was brown with a rare brown spot in the middle. In all my years, I have never ask my meal to be returned and been treated so poorly by the management staff when doing so. This meal was surely not worth the very pricey price my in laws paid ruining my birthday celebration.
This was the first and last time I will ever go to Mr. Benny's Steak House in Mokena, I would rather eat at McDonald's there food is fresher.
If you have money to throw away and like taking a risk on your health than Mr. Benny's is for you! Not for me!
Went to celebrate a birthday on Saturday, Feb.13. Little surprised the coat room was do-it-yourself. Pleasant atmosphere, courteous staff. Unfortunately, my entree was horrible. I ordered a filet butterflied and well-done (a good steakhouse shouldn't have a problem with that order). It arrived un-butterflied and medium. My baked potato came with sour cream that I specifically indicated I did not want. They ran out of one of their specials before 7pm. Very disappointed and won't go back.
I go to Mr. Benny's several times a year and almost always stick to the fillet or the ribs. Their seafood is also very good. The service is always attentive and friendly and the prices are completely fair for what you get.
I have been to both locations numerous times, and I can tell you all, there is nothing like it. The service is great and the food is even better:) Every item on the menus are worth tring once if not more. The steaks are excellent, the fillet will melt in your mouth. There are too many other items to tell you all about. I highly recommend you try it all yourselves. Let me just mention for dessert you have to try the flourless chocolate cake, if available.
After reading the entry about the trickery of Mr Benny's Steak and Lobster House. I decided to se on my own about this trickery. I (we) had the best dinner and service in a long time. Vicki was our waitress. We decided to have the Filet and Crab Combo and it was outstanding. The crab legs were split so we didnt have to crack them. And for dessert we had the Chocolate pecan cake which was deliciouse. We definitely will go back and you should too.

I was taken to Mr. Benny's as a birthday present which I chose.We have been there before with family. This time was the last time I would ever go there.After finding buckshot,bone and hair in the pheasant soup and being treated as if it were nothing I would not go back or recommend them to anyone again.I got the impression that they felt they already had enough business and didn't need ours.So be it.
