One step above the other

Good service and friendly wait staff. Food was tasty and hot. Makes a great alternative to the other "Mexican" restaurant up the street.

We enjoyed the ambiance, varied menu and delicious food in this convenient Mexican restaurant. The service was friendly and prompt. We were also pleasantly surprised by the number of vegetarian options - the stuffed peppers were a treat!

The restaurant inside was awful, peeling wallpaper, dilapidated furniture and dim lighting. I'm didnt mind too much until I tried the chips and dip... watered down salsa and stale chips. The food on the menu was overpriced. I got a taco salad, saddest salad I'd ever seen. After finishing my handful of lettuce I got fried ice cream. It was... More

Went here for lunch with friends. Very surprised to find a great Mexican restaurant in Prince Frederick. Used to live there and knew the history of the building. The food was fantastic and very reasonable. About $30 for 4 for lunch. The lunch portion was HUGE! Service was very nice and didn't mind (or at least did not say anything)... More

Great food, good value - we always have leftovers - we like the chorozio queso and guacamole dips to share. I really like anything with the mole sauce.

We moved to Calvert county about 12 years ago and have tried practically all of the restaurants in the area. La Tolteca has become our one and only stop for mexican food. They're always friendly, the service is good, the portions are good and the food is yummy. I like the enchilada verdes, just a little spicy, and my wife... More

We came in and they were not busy at all so we were told to pick anywhere. After choosing a booth, they quickly came out with the chips and salsa and I ordered my margarita. We ordered a spinach and cheese appetizer which came out super fast, delicious and just in time for us to order our main dish. My... More

Started out with a margarita that was very large and tasty. Service was prompt and friendly. The Rio Grande Burrito was very good. The location is very convenient across the street from the Safeway, though the parking lot does not inspire much confidence and was poorly lit.

I have to say that I am not a fan of La Tolteca. I find the atmosphere is a little too dark – not well lit for my taste. The couple of times that I’ve eaten there I’ve felt out of place. The staff greets you but they don’t appear glad to see you. I've usually notice them just standing... More
