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.

Highly recommend trying La Tolteca. My only experience has been with takeout, which was delicious, so I assume that dining in is even better. The Taco Bowl Salad is delicious and PACKED with shredded chicken (it's on the bottom so don't be alarmed when you don't see it at first). It was truly enough for two meals. Authentic Mexican food...

We are huge Mexican food fans, we have tried to go to the new LA Tolteca a couple of times but the waits were crazy, we finally got in tonight at 7:30. We ordered just routine enchiladas, our food took 50 minutes to come!! When we got it, the quality was nothing more than slopped together from a pre-made vat... More

I have to tell you this is one of the best tex mex restaurant we have in this area! It is truly authentic, I can only go here though when I want to loosen up on my diet.

Now open near the corner of Southwestern Blvd and art. 20' la Tolteca just opened it's second location in the Buffalo area. I'll gladly give give both locations the five-star rating and now that they closer to my south town home, I imagine we'll be frequently this new local. Atmosphere is southwestern, without being tacky. Very comfortable and I lived... More

Searched for this restaurant on Tripadvisor and Yelp. Good ratings. The food was good- but service was very slow. New Waiter was friendly but we waited 45 minutes for our order-too long. Once we got the food, it was good. Salsa was bland for my taste, but ok. The queso blanca was good but small for the price. The seafood... More

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
