Benny's Tacos, Por Favor!
DOS Tacos Are Better Than UNO
Benny's Tacos & Chicken Rotisserie is one of my favorite taco spots in Santa Monica; and whenever I eat at Benny's, I always get the two taco plate. You can pick your protein for the taco plate, and I've learned that you can't go wrong with TWO tacos filled with Benny's fresh rotisserie chicken. I usually go for the shredded chipotle chicken, which gets piled high on top of homemade tortillas and covered generously with cilantro and onions. The plate comes with black beans (or pinto beans, if you like) and Mexican rice, as well as chips and fresh guacamole. And you can get queso fresco sprinkled all over. It's a pretty significant meal, but no matter how full I start to feel about halfway through, I always end up with a clean plate. Nothing goes to waste!
In addition to serving tasty Mexican food, Benny's also has a really cool and casual vibe. There's a salsa bar inside the restaurant, so you can choose from a variety of salsas (I love the verde) and grab extra cilantro for your meal. It's also all covered patio seating, which is perfect for Santa Monica. No worries if it's a little cold outside either -- Benny's has outdoor heaters to make sure you're feeling nice and cozy while you eat. But the best part is that the people who work at Benny's are so friendly and nice! They greet you with a smile when you order, and they will check on you a few times during your meal to make sure that everything is okay. Which, of course, it is!
I feel pretty lucky to live within walking distance of Benny's. It's the perfect spot for a casual lunch or dinner. The food is consistently yummy, and the folks at Benny's are the absolute best.
