About Us


Owners John and Lynn Hill

The Hill Family, John, Lynn, John Michael II and Ali would like to welcome you to Bennie's Italian Foods.  Our story started in 1983 with the purchase of Bennie's.  Our building is 100 years old on the outside with state of the art technology on the inside.  We have gone to great lengths to restore this building's natural beauty, yet take advantage of the new technology of today's ever growing world.  We are keeping the old Bennie's recipes and adding new ones along the way.  Let us know what you want and Bennie's will deliver.  We will continue to serve the same quality food while doing our best to make each and every meal a pleasurable dining experience.  We desire to have you as a frequent customer for a lifetime.  The Hills truly appreciate your business.  Thank you for considering Bennie's for all your dining experiences!
