* UPDATE: As of August 7, 2016, Benji's is no longer open for business. *
Austinites, as you know, you've got your classic Tex-Mex down right - El Rancho, Guero's, Maudie's, Trudy's, Chuy's, etc. But then there is fine Mexican dining, where they tweak traditional dishes into contemporary upscale tastings. Recently opened Benji's is a quality Mexican Cantina.
And, if you're lucky enough to get a table up there, quickly snatch up a seat. It's the perfect place for outdoor seating with large rooftop with views.
The Guacamole is made and served tableside. Yes, it is a bit cliché, but it is still always a good bit of fun for everyone.
The Fajitas are overflowing - definitely fit for two.
And the rest of the menu, from our dining experience, is stellar fresh and full of flavor.
