I am a regular and also close with the family that owns it and it is like making the decision of my life trying figure out what to eat BUT what I... read more

Our family often gathers for dinner at La Tolteca. It is very authentic Mexican food. The drinks are good and their Guacamole is the best ever, prepared at you table and seasoned to your liking. We even had the pleasure of live Mariachi on one of our visits. This is a very popular place but the wait for seating is... More

My fiance and I are regulars here, and not just due to proximity. We will throw out our dinner plans at the drop of the hat to come here and enjoy the freshly made Guacamole. The guacamole artisan (once you see it, you'll agree) is one of my favorite people in the world. He knows us on sight, and we... More

You are treated to fresh chips with two dipping sauces immediately upon arrival. The menu is extensive and has something to please a variety of tastes at reasonable prices.

One of the best little places in Bel Air for Mexican food. Try to get there between meals so your wait isn't as long but if you have to wait, it is worth it. They have a section for vegetarians which is great, plus asking for some other items to be added on is No problem! You GOT to try... More

My whole family enjoys the food. We all have our own personal favorites and always enjoy a night out here. I've eaten at a number of Mexican restaurants recently in Huntsville, AL, Detroit, MI, and Mt. Olive, NJ but definitely enjoy this one the most. I recommend La Tolteca for good Mexican food at reasonable prices...Enjoy!

The food here is average--at best--but any real "foodie" will certainly be disappointed! The menu is large and typical of a chain Mexican restaurant, it just happens not to be very good. The food is lackluster and the same can be said of the margaritas--even a premium selection tasted like bad margarita/sour mix. Having a liquor license is the only... More

Just good Mexican at a very fair price. I recommend the fish tacos, the street tacos, chili relenos and the guacamole made tableside.....along with XX on draft. Locations in Bel Air and Churchville. Some of the female wait and hostess staff in Churchville have a monumentally bad attitude, hopefully you get one of the guys who give excellent friendly service.

This is my favorite mexican restaurant. They have consistent good food! Their margaritas could be a little more reasonably priced and they could offer "Texas" margaritas.

this is the McDonalds of Mexican food. Real authentic food isn't so heavy. I loved my first two experiences, because I craved Mexican food, but last two times weren't so pleasant.
