An Orange County Destination for Food Lovers

Complete with a fantastic menu, friendly servers, and a façade to match the era—Benjies Deli & Restaurant captures the ambiance of a 70s New York Deli, making us a true Orange County destination for food lovers of all stripes. Our customers have come back time and time again for decades. Take it from Stuart K., whose family has been in the neighborhood for generations.

“I have been coming here since it opened in 1967,” he said, “and I will keep coming here, because there is nothing around that compares to the food quality and service.”

Benjies has something to satisfy every appetite—from fresh-cooked savory soups, to tender brisket with potato latkes (pancakes), stuffed cabbage rolls, and the most scrumptious pastrami sandwiches in town. And you won’t want to miss the most important meal of the day at Benjies! We serve up a delectable breakfast: fresh, home-cooked, and unbeatably priced every time.

A Delicatessen Built on Family Traditions

Benjies is so much more than just a delicatessen. Our on-site bar, Avenue K, has 8 flat-screen TVs—making it a destination for sports enthusiasts thirsty for a cold drink and hungry for a hearty meal. Perhaps the most fascinating feature of our Orange County gem is that much of our staff has been with us for 30 years or more. Our walls are adorned with framed photographs of our employees, commemorating the years we’ve shared and the memories we’ve made. While change is inevitable and we can’t resist it, it is comforting to know that some things (and places) stay the same. Here’s to 50 more delicious years!

Come to Benjies to experience the best NY-style deli and restaurant this side of the Mississippi.
