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.

Conversing with the wait staff was an exercise in futility and our food order suffered the consequences, in addition to being mediocre at best. You would think that ordering a basic combo dinner (two cheese enchiladas, beans and rice, plus one chile relleno) would be a relatively simple task. You would be wrong. We will not return.

After visiting every mexican restaurant from williamsport to Berwick, we were very disappointed with the caliber of mexican fare local to our home. We decided that, while attending an event at the Arena nearby to try this restaurant as our last hope for a decent mexican meal. it is 55 miles away from our house, but we will be back.... More

If you love Mexican food, this is the best restaurant in the Wilkes Barre/Scranton area. The table side Guacamole is a must try! The menu is big and the portions as well. We visit this restaurant on a regular basis and always enjoy it. Complaints? Well, the only thing I can think of it that the wait for a table... More

What a fantastic place to eat. I go here a lot, especially for special occasions. Good is authentic and portions are large for the price. Service is great, all bilingual. Very good English though. Try the nacho cheese dip.

Located very close to the mall and arena and Wilkes Barre, La Tolteca is good Mexican fare. Always crowded at the peak times, we find the best time to go is for a late lunch. The menu is massive and as soon as you are seated chips and salsa are delivered. Portions are fair (not huge) for what you pay.... More

This was only our second visit, but I know we will come back. The food is great, big portions. On this visit I felt a little rushed..... I guess our server wasn't very busy so she kept coming back to check our table, which made me feel rushed. Before I was finished I was asked if I needed a box,... More
