I eat here at least twice a week, daily specials, great prices, great food, great service. Spending six mos a year in Zihuatanejo I am always looking for the best food for the price and the staff are the best. There is takeout roasted chicken also.

Breakfast was so delicious. This place is worth seeking out. The locals obviously love it, which says a lot. Wish I had more time in Zihua to have come back for dinner. Super professional and attentive staff, and nice clean bathrooms as well.

We only eat breakfast out occasionally and this is one of two places we go. Ridiculously reasonably priced. Hubby loves their Juevos Rancheros, and I order their Chiliquiles with green sauce and a fresh orange juice. Very much a locals hangout, but a few tourists have discovered it over the years.

Open for breakfast, lunch or dinner with really good food, and great prices. There are numerous daily specials that are very reasonbly priced. The restaurant and the restrooms are spotless. This is one restaurant that you will go back to several times.

This is our favourite place to pick-up and take home. The chicken is always moist and delicious and the take-out always includes all the condiments and rice. It's fast, so you can just drop in and be on your way very quickly. Prices are very affordable. A must for something quick to take home and eat!

I have visited this restaurant more than 20 times while staying in Zihuatanejo and it never fails to satisfy. Fresh home cooked meals is what they offer. I don't think you can get better than that. The food is consistantly excellant, I love the handmade blue corn tortillas. They are underneath the other delicious corn tortillas in the basket.There are... More

I love this restaurant. Slowly working myself through the menu. This should be the standard for which you judge Mexican restaurants in Zihuatanejo. See how many Mexican families eat there. Pozole and Botanos are the best. Chiles rellenos are marvelous. Ditto the mole. Very clean place and attentive servers. Stops serving after 6 p.m.

Surprised there arent more reviews for Dona Licha...it has always been the place we look forward to returning to for breakfast when we come to Zihua. My husband thinks they have the best chilequiles in town (tortilla chips cooked in red or green salsa, topped with fried eggs or chicken or queso). I am addicted to molletes (soft white bread...

If you are seeking real, honest Mexican food at low prices, efficiently served and in hygienic surroundings, it's hard to beat Doña Licha's. The best deal is the Menú del Día, served in the afternoon. For about $40 pesos, you get a soup or rice, a hearty and savory main course, salsas, pickled vegetables and hot tasty tortillas. It's rare... More
