I have to agree the food from Peng's is very good but the men in the kitchen (including Jenny's husband) are not very clean. I worked at Peng's for a while and could not believe some of the things the cooks did back there like smoking while cooking the food, dropping food on the floor and still using it. There were always rat droppings in the storage room and when Jenny did have the exterminator come she never closed the next day although she knew there were gonna be roaches everywhere. There was 1 day I was so embarrased because a table of 3 women walked out without paying because a big roach was on their table while they were eating, plus there were roaches on the blinds and some crawling on the floor and all Jenny said was "Just pick em up with a napkin and throw em away". People always complained about the taste of the iced tea and that is because they do not use a tea machine, instead they put the tea bags in a bucket with hot tap water and let them sit in the freezer.

I have been eating at china town since i was like 7 when it was just two servers i believe Jenny and Michelle are their names, they know me and my family and always ask how everyone is doing. The food is great and it comes with so much, the service is prompt. I have never had to wait more than 10 minutes for my food even at the busy lunch hour. I reccomend this place is excellent, Lemon Chicken

Like the other review, I must agree that this restaurant is pleasantly consistant! The food is great & inexpensive. I have 3 children & the waitresses are always willing to help me with the children by letting them ""share a plate"" (they will be willing to separate the plate in the back for you!) because there is so much great tasting food on ONE PLATE! Lunch includes the drink! Wow!
Most of the time there is a welcoming smile at the entrance & service is quick!
GREAT INEXPENSIVE FOOD! What could be better!

Peng's is very consistent, cheap, and good. This is the sole reason why our family keeps going back--and many of the same in Peng's are return customers. If you order Lo Mein, the Lo Mein tastes the same each and every time, it's that good and that consistent.
