I rarely write negative reviews but this one is necessary. We went to La Tolteca on Sunday evening and were very disappointed. We came here a few times years ago before the fire and I remember it being decent and prices good. This time we found the portions to be extremely small and prices high. I had a taco salad... More

Great Mexican food! Highly recommend the fajitas, fajita burritos, margaritas! Very clean place. My favorite restaurant in the WIkes-Barre Area.

The food is fabulous, decently priced, the staff friendly & accommodating. It gets crowded on the weekends, but the food & service are consistently up to par. Do have the guacamole but don't fill up on the chips...save room for a dinner you'll definitely enjoy!

Completely renovated last year, with spacious veranda and good selection of beers and drinks this is by far the best place to go for lunch and dinner. Chips and tortillas homemade with white sauce to die for, but you've got to ask for it. Fajita is my favorite but everything else is good too.

First time guacamole was made fresh for us at our table side. Service excellent, home-made everything. Highly recommend this place, what nice people they are. Good job folks.

I never leave this place disappointed. The food is great, the margaritas are great, the staff is polite and accommodating. Definitely ask for the “white sauce” with the chips and salsa served before the meal, it is delicious.

Extremely fresh hot and tasty food. Fast and friendly service. Ice cold beer and drinks. The best stop to relax while shopping or passing thru Rt 81.

I really don't know what kind of food this place is supposed to serve. Some of their food is quite good, but some is rather strange. The white saucy dip they serve with their chips is very odd. They serve a regular salsa as well. Their chips are good. The fajitas are good. The biggest warning I can give potential... More
