Lunch at La Tolteca

Fresh guacamole. I like the burrito fajita. Or fajitas. We like lunch here. Dinner prices have jumped since renovations. Chips/salsa/white sauce refills are done quickly. Combinations available. We actually enjoy La Tolteca Express more.

GREAT PLACE! Delicious food and not expensive! I always have a hard time ordering because everything looks so good. We usually order bean and cheese dip with the starter chips but be careful because it is very filling! This is the only place I know in the area to serve 34 oz beers as well and it comes in a...

fast food mexican food at best. not very fresh. The tortillas seemed to be very stale, the wine (red wine) was not very fresh and the overall experience not very good. I guess if you want value go for it. If you want quality, go to an authentic Mexican restaurant!

This place was lower than average. The food was thrown together and had no flavor. The service was good. The place is nicely decorated. A lunch for, 2 which consisted of entree and one appetizer was 41.00, however not worth 20.00. I ordered the sizzling fajitas and they were flavorless, Chipotle is better than this place, never again!!!!

Since moving from Wilkes-Barre I've missed this restaurant more than any others. On a recent business trip to Wilkes-Barre I stayed solo in a nearby hotel and had to visit La Tolteca again. I ordered my food to go and was not disappointed. Great food and atmosphere!

Talk about a great find! This place is amazing! The margaritas were delicious! Table side guacamole was perfectly made...Yummy! The menu is very big and full of so many great choices! All four of us were happy with our choices! Burrito, fajita, and the Molcajete Tolteca were amazing! Very reasonably priced and super service!

My husband and I ventured down for the Black Friday sales and stayed in Wilkes-barre for the night and decided to try this place based on the reviews and we were not disappointed at all. We arrived to a busy restaurant but were seated quickly. We decided to try the table side guacamole and it was the best we have... More

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

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!
