“Great lunch at a good price”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

The matzo ball soup, corned beef, and kishka are our favorites. The parking is awful though if you have a large vehicle so opt for the street (otherwise you might get stuck). The staff is awesome though and it is very reasonable. We have 6 kids and they are very accommodating.

Great chicken soup with matza balls and corned beef. Friendly wait staff. Constantly delicious. A Milwaukee tradition for many years and generations.

“Wanted Kosher style restaurant on North Shore”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Benji's is as good as it gets here in the Milwaukee area. A little tired looking and hidden in back of strip center, but with terrific soups - awesome lentil soup, great hot dogs and Dr. Brown's diet cream soda. But sorry Benji's I want something more like Chompies in Phoenix.

“Been Going there since College”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

I have fond memories of Benji's since the early 80's when I dined there as a poor college student and enjoyed french dip, matzo soup and a giant Hoppel poppel. The Food is pretty much still the same and tasty - but decor hasn't changed in 30 years. Maybe Benji should splurge on some new furniture after all these years. Now our college daughter frequents Benji's often and enjoys it as much as we did. Is this what we call 'The Circle of Life'?

“Great Place”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

During our recent visit to Wisconsin we went to Benji's based on reviews we found online. It is at the end of a strip mall with narrow parking. The inside is a deli counter to your right and diner area to your left. Our waitress was friendly and happy to answer all our questions. The food was excellent with two of us having breakfast and two having sandwiches. It was well worth the trip and we would definitely go back.
