Benny's was one of the first California-style burrito joints to open in New York, opening way back in 1988. They specialize in the giant, gut-busting burritos popular in San Francisco as opposed to the smaller, more portable burritos of Southern California. Most of them come stuffed with black beans, Spanish rice, Monterrey Jack cheese and your choice of filling. Chicken and vegetarian options are plentiful: shredded barbecue chicken, grilled chicken with mango salsa, sautéed spinach and vegetarian chili are just a few of the 19 different options. Beef and fish burritos, tacos, nachos, quesadillas and more are also on the menu. It's not a huge restaurant, which would explain its brisk business in take-out, but it's certainly a fun one. Bright colors, funky lamps and booming music keep things constantly upbeat. It really gets jumping during happy hour, when beers are $1 off and margaritas are half-price.
