Yes, Yes, Yes Love It. – We have been going to Bennie's for several years.
The salad with "Bennie's Dressing" is "it" for garlic lovers. It is so unique several clones have been featured in other restaurants in the area. (The greatest form of respect.) The updated interior is a taste of Italy. My preference is the baked lasagna with the salad topped with Bennie's dressing. A downtown main street experience you must visit.
Skip this one – The only reason we came here was because it was listed in the AAA guide. But when we asked for the discount, they said they had no idea what we were talking about. The mgr said they had coupons circulating in town, but when we asked if we could use one of those, she said no.
Well, all right. Annoying that they are drawing customers with the promise of fictious discounts, but miscommunication does happen. So we ate there anyway. The trouble was, the pizza was so bad our 6-year-old wouldn't eat it--worse than we've eaten in Russia and Mongolia. There was a bread basket but the contents came cubed as if for a communion service. The Italian sausage sandwich was soggy and uninspiring, the barbeque sweet and without tang.
Did we want dessert? we were asked. Well, come to think of it: No. Thanks, though.
We admittedly were grumpy because of the discount/coupon situation, but the food and attitude of inflexibility did nothing to win us over.
