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

My wife and I have eaten in many Mexican restaurants on the West Coast, in Mexico and all along the East Coast. This is the WORST Mexican dinner food that we have ever had. My wife's taco shells were like cardboard and disintegrated when some salsa was added, the filling was minimal and flavorless. My Fajitas were overcooked and not... More

I love their enchiladas, fajitas and pork. Guacamole is also very good. We go to La Tolteca every couple of weeks. The service is super fast and the food is good and hot.

TA reviews prompted us to dine here. We had a very good meal, were treated well, and happy to find a non-franchise restaurant for dinner. We had a chuckle over the height of table vs. height of booth seating making us think we were at the kids' table. We had a laugh, then a very good dinner.

The staff is wonderfull, and remembers us when we walk in. The food is very good and a great price. Me and my wife went a few times when she was pregnant, and always had a great time. If your in the area and looking for tasty Mexican food at a great price, then check them out.

My wife and I attended a couples baby shower at this venue. It actually turned out pretty nice. There were 6 couples and a good time was had by all. The food was wonderful. Outstanding presentation, taste, flavors, preparation. Kitchen did a great job. We had the Beef and Chicken fajitas. Best I ever had. Now for the service. The... More

The service and atmosphere are great! The food is crazy good, especially given that Mexican on the east cost is typically a miss. The people are very friendly and the drinks are strong. The porch is a great addition!
