Great place for Mexican food in Wilkes-Barre

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... read 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.

We stopped late afternoon on a Saturday, and it was a quieter time to be there, no long wait for a table. Waitress pleasant and helpful. Only issue was that I was expecting some simpler dishes, like a beef burrito with cheese but not on menu. Otherwise, no complaints.
