better menu than before

This is the first time I've been here since the remodel after the fire. The menu got much better. Not just your standard Americanized fare. Had a chicken and spinach burrito which was quite good. The tableside guacamole cart is a little over the top, but maybe that impresses some people. I... read more

My wife and I were staying in Wilkes Barre on our way to a family gathering and found this place through Trip Advisor. Authentic Mexican food, great friendly service and reasonably priced.

We love good Mexican food and have been happy with the quality of the meals and service at La Tolteca over the course of several years. Our last visit, unfortunately, was disappointing. The quality and quantity of our meal had gone down since our last visit about six months ago. The service was also not as good. Our waiter was... More

Pretty solid Mexican fare. Guacamole made at your tableside is cool. Wide menu selection with a flavorful choices. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. They screwed up 2 of our orders but made good on it without fuss or muss, especially when it turned out that one of us had mis-ordered our dinner. Spacious and told it has nice... More

Was recently at La Tolteca after not having been there in a couple years (did not previously have a bad experience, just hadn't been there) and it seems like they upgraded their menu fairly significantly. I had the fish tacos (there were 2 types on the menu, I had the deep fried style) and they were just delicious. The waiter... More

Food was kind of bland and so was the service. Place had kind of slowly gone from very good to mediocre.

Was a busy Saturday evening but was seated outside. Did take a while to get our entrees but was in no hurry and the chips and salsa was enough while we waited. Service was excellent and the food very good. Would recommend eating here.

Me and the girlfriend heard this place had great food. Our server was very friendly and our food was absolutely amazing! The drinks were great and I could not get over how well the environment and staff were. There are very few places I would say are a perfect 10/10 but this I would give an 11/10!! It's a must...

I loved the chicken fajita salad. Lots of meat, avocado, fresh lettuce and a delightful dressing. Delicious and huge. Can't wait to return for another.
