Prompt service and lots of options

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... read 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

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!

We like to camp at Indian Trails in Pardeeville in the summer and look forward to a meal at this restaurant when we are in the area. Great food, good service, fun atmosphere. It is consistently a good time. The chile colorado is one of my favorites but it is spicy.

Entering the restaurant grabs your visual interest with the bright colors, giving a true "Mexican" feeling. Next, the margarita (awesome), then a menu with choices so extensive, it will take you awhile . . . unless you are a "regular", and plan to order your favorite! Service was fast and efficient. This is a great place for couples, families, or... More

Very colorful decor, I'm not big on Mexican food, but I did enjoy my meals here. The portions are good and the food is very good. The service is excellent. I would eat here again.
