This place looks run down, and was, at one time, some old fast food restaurant. The food those, is great, with personalized service from the owners and family members

Great seafood selections. Diablo sauce - spicy goodness. Best Mexican we've had in the area. Friendly atmosphere.

This Mexican restaurant located in the west valley of Phoenix is outstanding, the was good Mexican food should be prepared. Very friendly staff, great prices and clean. Diner style but don't let that stop you from a great Mexican meal

Everyone in my family loves Don Lencho's. Even the one who never really liked Mexican food while growing up. My mother introduced me to the place, and eventually my family moved nearby. The menu is extensive, but we've each already settled upon our favorites. With every visit, I'm tempted to try something new... but I like my usuals so much... More

We have been to Don Lencho's many times. Every dish is superb especially the deep fried whole fish, eyeballs and all and the menudo and the chips and salsa and, oh forget it just go. There is none better.

2nd visit to Don Lencho's. Excellent I believe this Mexican restaurant is the most authentic this side of Mexico. Service is great prices are very fair. Today on Mothers Day I had the fish tacos, they were perfect. Do yourself a favor and go to Don Lencho's for the best Mexican dining 😀😄

We've lived in the area for many years but this is the first time we've had the opportunity to visit Don Lencho's. Very conveniently located in the southern part of Peoria, close to the Loop 101. We had shrimp enchiladas and a chicken chimi. Both were excellent. The house margaritas were great and the chips and salsa were delicious and... More

We had a very attentive server. The chips and salsa were great...and we both enjoyed our meals immensely! My husband had Carne Asada fries which he has never even seen at another restaurant and said they were fantastic. I had a chicken Chimichanga which was also extremely tasty. Will definitely go back!
