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!

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.
