It's so much fun to go here - the decor is very bright and happy and so is the staff. Food is excellent - great margaritas

Neat atmosphere, friendly servers, extensive menu. A very nice place for a moderately priced Mexican meal. Very popular with the local crowd.

Working in Portage, this is the best restaurant in town. I love the fresh, authentic food there. The staff is always so fun and friendly. The food is always amazing and the price perfect. They seat you and immediately bring fresh chips and homemade salsa to the table. We bring our visitors here! We have even had holiday parties here.... More

I've never had a bad meal here. If you like margaritas, order a pitcher of the "top shelf." I don't remember the price, but it was amazingly low. The staff is always extremely friendly.

I've been to La Tolteca several times. I have enjoyed many delicious meals there. The service is prompt and courteous, portion sizes are ample, the chips are good. I am not a huge fan of their salsa, but that is just me - all of my friends like it quite a lot. Other than 1 not so great fish taco,... More

Monday and Tuesday $4.75 large, great margaritas. Beer on tap is small or really large!! They have a new burger that's incredibly juicy!! I love their guac, cheese dip, white sauce (excellent) and their shrimp dishes. Bathrooms needs remodeling but the food is great and the staff are friendly. Sit at the bar, enjoy!

We ordered 2 combo plates, Beef burritos, chicken enchiladas, chalupa. Refried beans are canned, and all the food had no taste to it. They serve chips and salsa with your order as an appetizer, which is great and the chips are very good but the salsa is boring. No wonder they have 4 different hot sauces in bottles at each... More

Portage isn't known for it's restaurants so La Tolteca is most appreciated. What I love most is the decor - wonderful carved and brightly painted tables & chairs that just cheer you up when you walk in. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. I'm particularly partial to their soups although they are usually only lukewarm, instead of hot, and... More
