I was so glad one of my co-workers suggested La Tolteca. What a good choice for lunch. We arrived about 11:45 am on a Wednesday...not crowded yet and was seated promptly. The waiter brought over tortilla chips and salsa for our table---very nice. I ordered the chicken fajitas---$8.99. They served 3 freshly baked tortillas in a crock---a sizzling pan of... More

My husband & I came here for dinner. My husband ordered the carnitas dinner. The pork was terribly salty. He did not get the tortillas with it. Other than that, it was acceptable/edible. I irdered a skinny margarita. It was the worst skinny margarita I've ever ordered. I ordered the chipolte burrito. It was fair & w/o any sauce or... More

We visit La Tolteca regularly, and always love it! The quesadillas are great! One thing to note, they stopped giving out the white dip with the salsa and chips that they used to give before the fire in 2013, but they still make it! I wish they would just bring it out and I don't know why they don't, but... More

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.
