Dive Deep for Deliciousness [Benny’s Mexican Food]

When I moved to the Golden Hill neighborhood nine-years-ago, a friend told me that I had to try the burgers at Benny’s.  I was a bit hesitant, as Benny’s is known for their wide variety of quick Mexican cuisine, but I gave their burgers a whirl and nine years later, I’m still going back for more.  Benny’s burgers are just how I like them; not made from quinoa, not made from an Elk or soy or a turkey.  Their definitely bigger than a slider, but way less bigger than my head.  They’re juicy without being drippy and they’re not grilled until you order.  They’re packed with fresh veggies and condiments I grew up eating on a burger.  And the best part is that sometimes I’m just not in the mood for a side of fries and love having them with chips and guacamole.
