“Great specials!”

Specials always good & authentic! Ask for salsa picante. All pork & fish tacos wonderful. Chips are homemade. Servers are friendly.

“Mexican Restaurant owned by Mexicans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

La Tolteca Restaurant in La Plata, Maryland, is a sister restaurant to its namesake in Waldorf. Both are owned by a family from the State of Jalisco in Mexico, west of Mexico City. The La Plata restaurant is larger than the other and decorated more in the Spanish colonial style. The menu features Mexican staples - burritos, enchiladas, tacos, quesadillas. Unlike Tex-Mex franchise restaurants, it serves cooked to order meals with ample side dishes like refried beans, rice, tomatoes and guacamole. Dinner for two, without alcohol, typically runs about $20.00, a great value for an order-from-the-table restaurant. Like the meals, mixed drinks are very generous.

The staff is friendly. The owners are often there, and they remember their repeat customers.It is a pleasant place to eat.

“We love to meet here for dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

About half way between my house and my daughter, that's why we started coming here. We keep coming back because of the food and service. Love the white cheese dip and chips! And they do special requests that have always turned out great. Every server we've had has been good, helpful and quick. Price is reasonable. We don't often drink since it's a couple hours drive for each of us, but I did have a margarita on a couple of occasions, and they are really good. Atmosphere is the usual mexican restaurant in a strip mall, but who cares if the food is good!
