Benny’s was born out of necessity. Ever since we first opened in 2011 we have provided quick, quality meals at a price that everybody can afford. Sit down, have a beer or take off running. Order a whole pie and feed 2 families. We limit our toppings and we don’t count pennies so everything stays simple. After all, pizza is the best 5-letter word in the English language so there is no reason to overthink it.
Benedito “Benny” was a man of compassion, dedication, and good taste. Born in the old country, raised in Brooklyn, Benny spent his youth in the kitchen of Tiro A Segno (the century-old Italian gun-club of Manhattan). He worked under countless Italian chefs and served a generation of city leaders and cultural icons.
Unknown circumstances forced him to leave the city and he landed in a small town on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. He began making pizza pies for his neighbors out of a brick oven he built off his back porch. He became quite popular within the community.
