We sat on the spacious patio. I had one of the best Margaritas in a restaurant ever. We shared a couple of appetizers and a salad. Very different items on the menu and portions were certainly ample to share.Service was great. Very enjoyable evening, worth the effort to find it.

This is the real deal! I'm from San Diego on the border and this is quality food, done the traditional way. I must say that the service is one of the top in any restaurant I have been to in all of PA. Perfect for special occasions. I LOVE going here!

My friend and I had dinner there this past week. We each had a margarita and a dinner.......both our drinks were great as well as the food. The part I wish to find out about is the added service charge.........there was an open food charge and a note that it was a service charge for $10. Our bill was $53.00... More

I'm not usually one for Mexican food but I do like a few items. Tried this place out twice and absolutely loved both dishes I ordered and everybody at my table loved theirs. House margaritas are delicious and everything is high quality cuts of meat and veges. Price is actually very good as well and they give you good size... More

Above average Mexican food with fast friendly service. Very nice atmosphere. The booths were fine, the seating surface was cracked but comfortable. Our waitress was friendly and provided quick efficient service. The menu was extensive and they offer bar service. We will return.

If you want authentic Mexican cuisine, go to La Tolteca. The food and service are great, and, if you would think that you are in Cancun! I would definitely recommend coming to this restaurant if you want real Mexican food.

This place has the best Mexican food I have ever had in the States. You really feel like you are in Mexico while you are enjoying your meal. I would highly recommend it. We have been there many times.

We like this place a lot. I think this place is better now then before the fire. The margaritas are not cheep but very delicious. The rest rooms are clean. Alex the mgr. stopped by our table when he was helping out the staff. We're coming back. Just my two cents.
