We were drawn in by a blues duo playing in the garden. It was a nice day to sit out enjoying a leisurely lunch. Music was just right. Food was gone. We had salad and sandwich, buy no beer.

We happened upon the restaurant while walking in downtown Salida. The inside dinning is more bar like but they have a great outside patio to dine on. It was private and shading and provided a great place to eat our great food. The portions were very big and the service was exceptional. There was no need to ask for anything as the server/bartender either brought more of what he saw we needed or asked if we needed more.

What happened to Bensons? We were drawn in by the outdoor seating, and our past experiences, but wow! Very poor service and mediocre food are not worth the nice outdoor seating. They were out of a few key items we were told after ordering. The waitress and bartender forgot to bring items we ordered, and when we did get most of our order...it wasn't very good. The menu is short and unimaginative, and the service is apathetic. Big bummer.

The food was just okay, nothing spectacular. I ordered the burger and agree with another review I read, it was a bit over cooked and lacked flavor. The service was very friendly but a bit slow.

We picked this place based on a review from our river guide. She said these were the best burgers in town. We were sorely disappointed. The burgers were overcooked and dry. The service was slow, and they didn't get our bill correct. I would not
recommend this restaurant.
