Our favorite mexican restaurant

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... read 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

Most of the restaurnats in southern maryland have one thing in common big cold draft beers. That the best feature at any oneof them. The chips vary from place to place as well as the salsa. None have truely outstanding food. Service is usually good and the food normaly comes out fast. There are three mexican restaurants with 5 miles... More

Service is great. Beer is cold. Food is delicious. Place is clean. Very family friendly. My favorite is the Rio Grande Burrito. Prices are much better than the competition.

After reading the reviews really not that good, prices are right on point for the typical local So MD Mexican no better no different. The house special Margarita tasted like dish water, salsa watery bland. Overall below average. Sad Face,,,

La Tolteca has a great selection of traditional and non traditional Mexican food. I love their shrimp fajita nachos. They also make a great sangria. Their kid's menu is great with both kid favorites and variations of Mexican favorites. Service is always great and we've never had to wait for a table.

The food is typical mexican and the atmosphere is average mexican restaurant. The draft beers come in the huge variety - if you like. The chips and salsa are average. Yet one of six mexican restaurants in the Prince Frederick area. We bounce from one to the next and find them all quite similar. It is OK for family.

Sal will welcome you when you go to this cozy place...his food is terrific. When you order fajitas, you don't get the shaved little pieces of meat--you get hunks of juicy quality steak or chicken and nice fat shrimp. Don't miss the Asadita for an appetizer--tender marinated steak-delicious. His sangria is great and the desserts...ooooh...save room!!!
