“Superb mexican food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The beef and chicken quedadilas are to die for. I had to recreate them a few days layer, nut my version was not as good- missed something in the spices. I pray they will expand to the eastern shore. This will be our lunch stop forever as we travel from de to va!

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.
