About Us

A Family-Owned Restaurant in the Charming Rural Village of San Jose Succotz

Inspired by Tradition 

Benny’s serves authentic cultural cuisine at affordable prices and has won the hearts of tourists and locals alike. After starting out as a small fast-food restaurant, Benny’s officially opened in November 2003 and has been serving the best local cuisine ever since.

Indulge in the signature dishes of the Maya, Mestizo, and Garifuna in an extraordinary open-air wood pavilion setting. Enjoy appetizers like empanadas, salbutes, and tostadas and main dishes like the traditional rice and beans with stewed chicken and salad. Try the popular Pibil, pork that is cooked underground until tender, shredded, then served with corn tortillas.

Bring your friends and family for a delightful group dinner or stop by to fuel up for a visit to the nearby Xunantunich Mayan Ruins. We welcome you to experience tradition through food at Benny’s Kitchen.
