Extensive menu something for everyone. Great portions and quick service. Love the outside deck in the summer. Tasty margaritas and friendly service.

We waited well over 2 hours... waiting an extensive time for our orders to be taken and then again for our food to be brought to the table. Used to be a favorite, but will not be returning. Service was horrible.

Got in quickly on a Friday night. Food was fantastic. I had the Texas. Mixture of chicken shrimp and beef. Rice and beans included. Only 40 for the 2 of us and had stuff to take home. Great portion. I'll definitely be back.

The food isn't bad however the smell of the place is horrible. The smell will stick to your clothes and even in your car. Ive been to many Mexican restaurants and none of them have smelled this bad or at all.

Nothing fancy, but reliably good. All the standard dishes. My favorite is the Spinach Burito. Great place for lunch.

I have tried several other "newer" Mexican places around the area and every time I go back to La Tolteca I am reminded that is the best by far. Fajitas for 2 with the mix of pork, chicken, steak and shrimp was enough for 4...More
