My wife and I had dinner the other night and were totally satisfied. We arrived around 6 pm and were immediately attended to. Host asked if we wanted table or booth, and upon being seated, were greeted by waiter with chips and salsa. The drinks and food were generous and reasonable and complimented by a polite, punctual and informed staff.... More

Wait staff accommodating. Horchata HUGE and good. Really liked the entree. Tamales were a little disappointing, but still OK.

I stopped here twice in a two week period recently. I used to come here often and loved the environment, staff, and food. The food was alright. All I wanted was cheese sauce. Each visit they didn't bring chips promptly. By the time I got the chips my dip was cold and getting hard. Each visit I never received a... More

We stopped in Portage for the night and stopped by for dinner about an hour before closing time. The enchiladas and carne asada tacos were great. Well seasoned and good sauces. The margaritas were ok - nothing special. Service was poor. Food for another table was delivered to us by a runner who did not speak English. When our food... More

Wanted a quick, hot meal while traveling through central Wisconsin. I checked other reviews and decided to give it a try. Lively, colorful establishment with So many options. I tried the vegetarian quesadilla with cheese and it came with Spanish Rice and salad. Authentic, came to the table quickly and was hot. Large portion. Worth giving it a try.

We stopped at La Tolteca hungry after a long day of skiing and we're not disappointed! The food was very good and the staff was friendly. The salsa could have more heat, but they give you plenty of hot sauces at the table to add on your own. We had a variety of meals (enchiladas, quesadilla, chimichanga) and everyone thoroughly...

We went to the restaurant last sat night it was packed but we got a table and we had drinks right away. The service is great. We ordered the Lindo Special and it was wonderful. It had peppers and onions along with shrimp, steak and chicken on rice with the best cheese sauce ever. Great drinks and a great place.... More

Upon entering you know you're in for a fun experience. The bright colors will cheer anyone! The menu is extensive! Never been disappointed! Service is fast and friendly. Has a sister restaurant in Sun Prairie with the same name and is equally as good!
