Always good

I really like ordering fajitas here. I usually get the steak fajitas. My whole family likes this restaurant. The prices are about what you would expect for good Mexican food.

But the restaurant needs a good cleaning! It always seems to have a film on the tables and the floor seems dirty. An update is in order. But their chile rellenos are great! Good chips and salsa, too.

We have eaten at this authentic mexican restaurant every time we visit buffalo. This year we got smart and arrived at 4:45.. its was still very busy.. had to wait 5 minutes for a table at the bar. I noticed by 5:15 there was a huge swarm of people waiting for tables. We love the guacamole, chips and margaritas... every... More

We traveled to USA mainly for shopping and visiting some friends and we decided to try this Mexican restaurant and it was an excellent choice. Food was just amazing and best Mexican food we had in north east USA. Service and staff were wonderful. We will definitely visit this restaurant again when we come to USA.

This is the BEST Mexican restaurant that I know of in Buffalo. They recently rewrote the menu but I usually get a lime margarita and two tamales. They are hard to find on the new menu but I just ask the waitress for it. Also, a chile relleno is always worth it, too. ¡buen apetito!

We return to La Tolteca every time we visit the Buffalo area. The food is fresh, the service is fast and friendly , and the Margueritas are superb. It's hard to find freshly squeezed lime juice, and premium Tequila choices in the Mexican restaurants we have visited, other than this one. The line-ups at this place are a true indication... More

There's a dearth of mediocre mex out there, and, sadly, this is another... It can all be summed up in their beans and rice... No care for the staple of great Mexican food. Just a plop and a glop which creates a flop. Margaritas are standard. Chips and salsa standard. You just come away looking for More and Better.

We were at the restaurant on a Satruday night - super busy. With that said, we sat at the bar, had a FAB margarita and once we got our table had fantastic service, despite things being so busy. Start with some nacho chips and what appeared to be a home made salsa, not sure that it was but it was... More

Stopped here for lunch one day. Fish taco was good, with cabbage and pico de gilo. Others said their more traditional Mexican fare was tasty. Nice decor and friendly staff.

This is the best Mexican restaurant in the Buffalo area. When you are seated they serve complimentary chips and salsa. The home made salsa alone is enough to make you return. Then there is the food. Always served promptly and hot. No long wait here. Lunch can definitely be had in a normal 30 minute lunch break.
