I live here in Benson and I frequent this restaurant quite often. The food has always been good and the service is always prompt and courteous. I noticed over the last few months it has had larger than most turnover of staff. Yet Patty (the owner) still brings qualified servers and cooks. The food is your typical restaurant fare. Yet...

Three of us had dinner at the Horseshoe Cafe Saturday evening. The hotel clerk suggested the Horseshoe and we were very pleased she did. Although they were busy the food was good, reasonably priced and the service was terrific. Many of the restaurants around Benson seem to close early, so check closing times before you head out. Our waitress Megan... More

My aunt and I visited on her recommendation during a recent trip to Scottsdale. The food is fairly good, cheaply priced, and rather fast. While it may have a wait when it is busy (as it was on the way back), it is worth it.

Ate here twice during our 5 day trip to Benson/Willcox area. First time was because it was one of the few places open for a late dinner. Liked it so much we returned for lunch on our way home. Friendly, prompt service. Meatloaf was good, but enjoyed burgers even more. Didn't have room for pie, but it looked yummy. Great... More

We had lunch here yesterday. The service is slow and the food is very average. We arrived about 30 minutes before they close (2 pm on Sundays). The staff was more focused on cleaning and putting things away than they were on serving us. I had previously read reviews and that is the only reason we stopped. Now that we... More

Stopped in for a night out with the family because this place came highly recommended. The food was rather good from what we ordered and saw other people having. Portions also very generous with a basic hamburger weighing in an a half a pound. It was a Friday night and the special was all you can eat fish so I... More

This is not a steakhouse or a 5 star restaurant. It's a cafe/diner in a small town. With that being said, my steak and husband's meatloaf were just fine and the service was good. I probably wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone but neither would I want anyone away.

It is always a busy place, but the wait wasn't too long. Service was very good. My meal was a fish dinner. It was good but not anything extra special by any means. Not bad either.

Thank 4upnorthjen
