Wow! We came here on the recommendation of the cashier at wawa, and man are we happy we did! The atmosphere was awesome and the food was fabulous! Couldn't believe the crowd an hour before closing on a Sunday night!

This restaurant has excellent food everytime. I have been to two out of the three locations. The plates of food are huge, overflowing with tasty food. they make a tableside guacamole that is fun to watch and creamy to dip chips in. The two locations I have been to get crowded easily, and when full can be a little noisy.... More

Dine alone or with the kids this place is a pleaser. We never leave hungry and the food is always good.

We love going here for some fantastic Mexican food. It's a little "old" and outdated in the decor....but the food is good. I don't see any Michelin stars in their future...but for a meal out....just great. Staff is usually great.

La Tolteca has been a favorite of mine ever since they opened their small restaurant in Bel Air. Now there are 3 locations. They have good food, the price is just right and the drinks are great especially the Margaritas. And be sure to try fresh made guacamole at your table. Thanks to La Tolteca for opening in Harford County.

have been here several times in the past few months for birthday celebrations. Each time, the food was excellent! Great, authentic Mexican food. Love the new guacamole dip that they make right at your table! Good addition!!

I have gone to this location at least 10 times but the last 2 were terrible. I think a frozen dinner has more flavor and there were not even any sides, beans and rice served with the combination dinner

Been here (and its sister location in Churchville) a half-dozen times. Parking is tough, but doable. Service is generally good. It's noisy when busy. Make no mistake: this is not authentic Mexican or Tex-Mex food. It is typical Americanized Mexican cheese-and-grease. Everything is soft and much of it is obviously pre-prepared. The only stand-out is the table-side guacamole, which is... More
