We visited Benno's on a VERY busy summer Saturday night. This is an order-at-the-counter place so the line was out the door. 30 minutes later I ordered the Cajun-grilled soft shell crabs. An hour later they arrived and OMG were they worth the wait! Spicy...More

This place was recommended to my wife & I by my next door neighbor in League City,Tx. Was not expecting much when we got there but the food was delicious. Look forward to eating there again when we are in Galveston again.

This place is AWESOME. We were lucky enough to get there just before the rush. You have to queue up to order. There is always a queue. Why? Because it’s that good. I had the fried. Yum.

Counter service with table service prices. They were busy and it took a while for the food to come up. Had a fried fish platter which was just ok. Cornmeal breading that produced dark brown rather than golden brown food. Coleslaw ok. French fries good....More
