Have you ever sat at your desk and wanted to get away from it all? Like wanted to make yourself totally inaccessible?
Well, in the heart of Downtown Jacksonville there is a great place to go off the grid (or better yet, underground). That secret spot is Benny’s Sandwich Shop. Benny’s has been showing no bars on cell phones since before cell phones fit in your pocket. Located in a bank vault of the old Atlantic Bank Building and accessible only by tunnel, Benny’s may be the only place in Downtown Jacksonville no one will ever really check-in to on Foursquare.
Being in an underground bank vault and tunnel aren’t even the best things about Benny’s. They’ve got really inexpensive yet tasty breakfast and lunch specials every weekday. Folks in the know line up for their soups and taco salads. If you are looking for that last second gift but don’t want to give up your precious parking spot or get in your car at all, Benny’s is an excellent place to pick up a unique present. Benny’s could be the easiest and most central place to pick up cool gifts, balloons, treats (including Peterbrooke), and cards and bags to make it look like you’ve been shopping not eating grits!
Take a minute to check out Benny’s and see why this family run restaurant may be one of Downtown Jacksonville’s best kept secrets. Benny’s Sandwich Shop is located at 121 West Forsyth St. (904) 634-1525 7:30am – 3:30pm
