I eat out everyday. This is one of my favorite spots to eat. The food is authentic, great and reasonably priced. The chips and freshly made salsa and guacamole are a must. Everything on the menu is good. My favorite are the chicken tacos and chicken tostada. It's not fancy but it's really good. I will continue to eat here... More

Very casual dining. Order food from the counter, find a table, and the food is then served to you. Reasonably priced. Very populat with the Azusa crowd.

We went to La Tolteca due to the fact that Guadalupe's was closed for remodeling. We hadn't been in for a while because this seems to be the norm for us when we go here. I know that MANY customers are very happy. I ordered the Chili Verde dinner. When it arrived, I looked through the peppers for the pork.... More

This a great spot for Mexican food. Their tamales and chile relleno are tasty. The food is served with refried beans and rice. My husband usually gets their menudo and says it is good. Some of their plates arent the most authentic but it is a good weekend spot if you want tamales during the year. For those that do... More

Get the combination plate! A taste of everything. I get the flour tortillas that come with it so I can make little burritos out of the chile verde, rice and beans. There will be plenty to take home so start with the fried items that won't be great the next day. Eat the shredded beef taco and taquito first then... More

I had dinner with some friends at La Tolteca in February 2016, and we all enjoyed our meal. The restaurant reminded me of having a meal at a restaurant in an amusement park. I walked into a very large open room, sort of like a cafeteria. You menu choices are on a big board, you pay at the register when... More

La Tolteca has been a fixture in Azusa for decades. The food is incredible. The prices have gone up a bit in recent years (maybe to help pay for the move to the new building) but it's still a worthwhile dining experience. Large, comfortable building, tortilla chips made fresh on site (as is the salsa). People come from all around... More

I went here with some colleagues for lunch. Was surprised that it wasn't totally sit dow - you order at the window and then take a tray to a table; they then deliver your food.. I had their carnitas plate (if you order the plate, you get chips and salsa) which came with beans, rice and tortillas. The helping of... More

Feeling nostalgic, I convinced companion that we needed to stop at La Tolteca while visiting the area because it had been over 30 years since my last visit... and it was much much smaller (and different location). There is a separate line for takeout and dine in. Menus are posted on the wall behind the cashiers -- wish they were... More
