Benny's Restaurante Y Tequila
Located in Capitol Hill, this lively cantina is one of Denver's most popular Mexican restaurants. Prepare to wait for a table any night of the week, but the bar is comfortable and a great place to pass the time. The Grilled Chicken Burrito is a menu classic, or if you prefer the meat to be shredded, try the Smothered Burritos, which come doused in a mound of chile verde. The margaritas are recommended, and the starter chips and salsa are some of the best in town.
This was the first place I went when I arrived in denver last night. Being from norfolk va an east coast town older than dirt . I have only been to taco bell and man I had no ideah what I have been missing. My buddy chris picked me from the airport and told me we were going to grab a beer and a shot I love my patron so we hit bennys and after a drink or two I noticed how great the kitchen was smelling so I ordered and man I am hooked!
Benny's is fun and has great food. The service is slow, but it's fun to hang out and relax. Margarita's are not the best but not bad. The stuffed sopapilla is delicious, full of cheese and green chili!
Benny's was highly recommended by friends but both times I went I was very disappointed with both the food and the service. The mole sucked. The chorizo was the worst I've ever had. And all this after waiting nearly an hour in line and being run over 4 times by the same bus boy. No thanks!
Don't waste your time. This place is so noisy you will get a headache. Don't think you'll be able to converse with your dinner partner. The noise level is beyond ridiculous. As for the food? Not bad but not great either. You can get food like this at any Mexican joint in town. The margaritas are terrible. You know you are in trouble when that happens. Quality of service? Slow slow slow. I will never go back.
