Owned by a local Mexican family that has locations all over the U.S. where the relatives live. Food is great, priced right, nice atmosphere, good drinks. A real pleasure to visit.

This is a repeat review, as I had not been here for a while until yesterday. While living about 21 years in Charles County, I must have tried at least a dozen Mexican style restaurants in Southern MD. This one remains my favorite. i have eaten at this restaurant since it opened, and at the Waldorf location before that. There... More

Great food, great prices, great service. One of the few places a family can go out and eat and bring home left overs for very little money. Love the chicken nachos.

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
