Very sweet wait staff. Happy atmosphere and tasty food.

Very tasty camarones diablo! Excellent wait staff. Our waitress even offered to charge my phone. The atmosphere was fun. We were there on a Monday and a mariachi band was playing.

Finally... a decent mexican restaurant. Chip and I have been searching, and have lived through a few bland disappointments. But this place is the best we've found so far. Worth the drive to the burbs and traffic on Transit. The food is good, service friendly and efficient, the atmosphere colorful. Bathrooms updated and very clean. The margaritas are pricey for...

Dined La Tolteca at around 5:30pm on a Friday night. The restaurant was not full yet we waited an hour for our food to come out! There is seriously no reason for it to take an hour for an order of nachos, tortilla soup, fajitas, and a couple of kid's meals. To top it off, the manager brought us one... More

We enjoyed this restaurant. Good portions, good food and good prices as well. We enjoyed the festive atmosphere- not as "American" as other "Mexican" restaurants have been in this area. The only item we didn't like was the guacamole which just tasted like an avocado. Otherwise, great choice. It gets busy so there is often a wait to get a... More

One of the best Mexican restaurants in the Buffalo area. Food is always good, the menu is broad and there are a lot of vegetarian options. I'm a fan of the Hawaiian Fajitas and I'm always pleasantly surprised by the taste and texture of the shrimp. It can get quite busy on some nights but the wait is generally reasonable.... More

We went in this restaurant with a party of 14-16 people and had a great time. The service, food, ambience and the live music (I think only on Mondays!) was superb. Will visit again!

La Tolteca is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Buffalo. I have been there a few times and I have always been very happy with my meal. As with most Mexican restaurants, the unlimited chips and salsa before the meal are a nice treat. My favorite entree is the Hawaiian Fajitas. The chicken, peppers and onions are served in... More

Nice Mexican restaurant for the Buffalo area. My wife had fish tacos and I had 3 chicken enchiladas. Everything was good and service was quick. Nice interior.

This is our second visit abd we have not been disappointed. The highlight is The chips and salsa, which are,free with dinner or $2.00 at the bar. Great fresh taste with a little bite. The wait is usually 20 minutes but it is worth it. The portion sizes are good, servers pleasant, and food is tastes with a wide variety... More
