Had lunch here, food very tasty with quick service. Nothing fancy, drive-in style service. Never had breakfast here but always busy when I drive past.

For a quick place to get some Mexican food it is pretty good. The location is pretty good with decent parking. The employee's need to understand a smile goes a long way with customers and the many times I was in there the lady who took my order looked like some one just stole her lolly-pop..

Nicos food is not great, but they offer large portions and superb salsa. The green is especially nice. I always enjoy their burritos and tacos. Always a good value. Nicos has stores in Tucson as well. This is not "gourmet" Mexican, but filll you up food that is consistently good.

It's a hole in the wall and you will miss it if you blink. Good freshly made Mexican but kind of bland. The locals know it and it's good for a quick stop but not a true 'restaurant'...a few chairs and tables but more like take out. No wait staff just the cook and the guy who takes your order...it's...

There are plenty of other options for Mexican food in Benson, some only a block away. I love little hole-in-the wall places but not this one. Service was not friendly or helpful. Prices are too high for what you get and the quality of my burrito was so poor that I threw most of it away.

A quick run in place that was OK but not great. Not a place I would choose to go to on a regular basis.

Some people I know like this place, so I tried it with my husband. You will be served on a paper place and plastic silverware, the enchilada was so tough I could not eat it or cut it for that matter. You do not get salsa and chips, The sauce is tasteless. After leaving my food, we went to another... More

Just as the title says. Nico's is average quality, had an upset stomach 30 minutes after eating here. Better options than Taco Bell obviously however, there is a better option for Mexican food down the road.

This Mexican food restaurant is of average quality. You order and pick up your food at the counter. Portion sizes are not huge but neither are the prices. Service is pretty fast. You won't be amazed but you won't be disappointed.

Beans made with too much lard or something -- honestly they tasted like old fish. We only ate here because on Easter in Benson it is the only thing open besides the Walmart. Next time we make the other choice....
