The food here is always plentiful and very good. We usually share the mixed fajitas (chicken, beef and shrimp) because they are plenty for two people. Chips and salsa are plentiful and served immediately. I don't care for their cheese dip, it tastes good but is very thin but gets thicker as it cools. I recently had the fish taco... More

My favorite Mexican restaurant. Love the Texas fajita dish. Portions are huge, enough to take home for another meal.

Came for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon with family. seated right away by a very pleasant and professional waitress. Was served chips and salsa right away and which were crisp and fresh. salsa isn't chunky and has the right amount of heat. would defiantly get the to-go-bag next time. had a lunch special, chicken enchiladas and cheese enchiladas....

Four of us for dinner, arrived on a Sunday around 5:15pm. I didn't even get my jacket off before the woman came with our chips and salsa. I didn't eat any chips, because our food arrived so fast. Kinda made me wonder how long ago the food was cooked because it arrived so fast. It was good but mine was... More

La Tolteca is by far the best Mexican food in Charles County. Their two locations are conveniently located from any area in the county. Their La Plata restaurant, the one I frequent the most, is awesome. Marcos, the owner is always pleasant and friendly. My all time favorite service is Marissa. She is THE BEST; super friendly and always accurate.... More

I've been to all the Mexican Restaurants in Waldorf and La Plata, MD, and this is the only one for me warranting repeat visits. Ask for their "hot salsa." It's not really hot, but it is spicy and tasty. Makes everything taste better when applied liberally. Their bean and melted cheese dip is also quite good. Everyone has their own... More

I used to love, adore, crave this restaurant. However, over the past few years I've been less and less impressed. What used to be a wonderful place to eat with fantastic food and excellent service is now an average restaurant with a mediocre menu and hit-or-miss service. We've found another restaurant for Mexican food and rarely visit La Tolteca anymore.... More

When I travel I like to dine at local restaurants - not chains. We lucked out when we found La Tolteca, hidden in a small mall on 301 in LaPlata, MD. Food was delicious. We both had good, filling meals. There are many items to chose from. My friend had a draft beer. He loved it. I was the driver.... More
