El Rey Tolteca was offering a $15 for $30 coupon deal so we went there for dinner. It was not crowded on a Saturday evening. Our server was pleasant and she brought us chips and salsa right as we sat down. We had a combination...More

Wanted to try it out as we live near by. The decor is really cool, kids loved it. Went for dinner on a Tuesday evening. Service was attentive, which is the highest compliment I can give. The chips and salsa aren't great - just so...More
