Constantly good Mexican food

Decent mexican food. (I grew up in the southwest on Mexican food). Prices are avg. for this type of restaurant. Traditional Mexican cheeses (quest blanco) vs southwestern (colby jack/cheddar) Have eaten here over the years 10-15 times. Quality is consistently good, although the chile rellenos... read more

The wait staff makes this a great experience with your typical Mexican fare. One of my kids favorites.

Chips and salsa were good. Food very bland and place is not very clean. We saw the reviews and took a chance. The reviews are accurate. Skip this place.

Atmosphere is decidedly Mexican but the food is fairly bland. Beef enchilada had a bland sauce, rice was fairly good and refried beans were watery. This is the first place I've ever experienced a chile relleno stuffed with potato and hopefully it will be the last. My wife had the Hawaiian Fajitas and enjoyed them but not enough to eat... More

Convenient location (near the Speedway- looks like there are to La Tolteca's in Dover). Quiet during our visit. The food was OK, not outstanding. Reasonably priced.

We first went to Chipotle but it looked such a small modern box of a place that we decided to try La Tolteca instead. Our mistake. First, it looks very dated and there is something very sticky all over their floors - don't know if it's something they clean with or not but it's definately not very nice to walk... More

I have never in my life seen such a fifthly and disgusting restaurant. I have eaten here before, but this last time was so awful I felt like I was going to throw up and left. I placed an order for pick up. They have the kitchen built so where you can see the "cooks." They are greasy and dirty... More

Went for lunch, the food was not very good. Especially for the price, I would expect it to be a lot better. The service was so so, the waiter refilled my drink with Pepsi, instead of Dr Pepper like I had ordered. The service was prompt though. I would not recommend this place.

We frequently visit this particular Mexican restaurant. It is the most consistent eatery that we visit anywhere. Service is always very good to great, and the food has never disappointed. This is not a chain, and everyone there works hard to make it a pleasant experience. There is a very similar but much larger restaurant further south on the same... More
