The Temecula crowd can now weigh in on whether the sandwiches at Benny’s Place are “The Best Subs in Town.”
Benny and Corinne Vargas, owners of Benny’s Place in Murrieta, have opened their second location in the Palomar Village shopping center on Rancho California Road in Temecula.
The couple launched their very first sandwich shop in Murrieta in 2004, where locals can often expect to be greeted by Benny, Corinne or their son, Benny Jr.
“We are unique because we are family-owned and operated but we still have that clean franchise look,” Corinne said.
Though times got tough at their Murrieta location when the recession hit, Corinne said they never compromised on their product.
“We might have cut the hours, but we did not change a thing. That is one thing we won't do,” she said.
During a friends and family night held Wednesday as a soft opening for the Temecula location, the couple said they will be using their Murrieta employees—including themselves—to ensure the food is prepared at the same level it has been for years.
The Benny’s Place menu includes soups, salads and sandwiches made with fresh breads, vegetables, meats and cheeses—all carefully selected by the owners. Catering is also offered.
As of Friday, Jan. 25, Benny’s Place is open from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday at 30590 Rancho California Road, Suite 302, in Temecula (near Albertsons).
Operating hours may fluctuate during their first few months until they gauge which hours they are busiest, according to Benny.
