My family and i (party of 7) visited on Saturday evening. It is usually our go-to Mexican restaurant but this night they were WAY off their A game. Slow service, cold re fried beans, inattention from wait staff and burnt chips. Yikes! We wont be back for a while, if ever. There are better places (many) in Williamsburg.

Always good! Chips and salsa when you are seated. Your food is always hot with fresh, made to order preparation. We eat there regularly. Sizzling iron skillet chicken fajitas, crispy fried chimichangas are two dishes I will typically order. Prices are reasonable and the food is better than any other Mexican fare in Williamsburg

Festive family atmosphere. If you like good spicy salsa, ask for the hot/spicy stuff rather than the normal stuff they bring. Lunch Buffet ... thought I was at Cinco De Mayo celebration. Wonderful spread, Every bit of piping hot unlike many buffet lines where food is lukewarm at best. Lots of choices, 7 or more types of chicken, a handful... More

We were looking for an alternative to fast food when we drove by and saw Le Tolteca. Since we like Mexican food, we decided to try it out. We were quickly seated and chips and salsa (and ranch!) were brought to our table. Our food came in a reasonable amount of time as well. however, the taste was not anything... More

Sunday afternoon, place is empty. We had to ask for water twice. It took 35 minutes to get meals. Service was horrible. Food just ok. Price...too high for this experience.

We always like to try someplace new with each vacation to an area we've been before. For today's lunch we decided on Mexican. We decided to stop at La Tolteca, as we were shopping in the area. When we entered the restaurant we were greeted and seated promptly. Our waitress came to the table with menus right away, asked if... More

This place has great specials, and a generally friendly staff who will accomadate you. The decorations are a nice touch. The salsa is great, and they take your order very quickly. We only waited ten minutes for our food, which was great because we were very hungry! The food was delicious, and the price was a bonus. Great Mexican in... More

An old friend and her young sons had a very good lunch. Some food was ordered off the menu, most came from their featured buffet. All was good. It is one of the boys favorites.

La Tolteca is a Mexican Restaurant serving classic food such as Fajitas, Quesadillas and Chimichangas as well as more traditional food like Chile Verde and Mole Poblano. What sets us apart from the other choices is our Lunch Buffet. The Lunch Buffet is available during Lunch hours (11 to 2) on Sunday - Friday.

La Tolteca was one of the first Mexican restaurants in Williamsburg and we have been serving our customers for over twenty years.
