Love the nachos and portion sizes for the main meals. Table-side guacamole (made for you on the spot) and chips are a nice touch. Decently priced and does give the "feel" of Mexico. Recommendable.

Terrific food and authentic recipes. Only place within Harford County that will make fresh guacamole right at your table side.

good restaurant but the service is equally crappy.... Bartender was busy chit chatting with some guy while 3 of us struggled to get second round.... despite of ordering 3 beers each we were asked to pay for extra chips since we didn't order food to eat... duh!! She didn't realize we spend more than the guy she was gossiping with....... More

The La Tolteca in Churchville offers the same great food as the Bel Air location, but they have Monday night half-price fajitas, and the dining room seems more spacious. Love the Taquitos, the freshly made guacamole, (right at your table), and the Pollo Loco.

Husbands asks weekly, let's go to La Tolteca! Great authentic Mexican and every item is fresh on the menu. He orders #99 every time. And get the table side guacamole as its fresh and perfect to accompany the warm fresh tortilla chips and salsa you will share before the main dish. Our favorite location is this one in Campus Hills!

Ordered a takeout salad and guac. Guac is the only reason they get a 2. Chicken completely wilted the lettuce. Only took 45 minutes to complete the order. Pass, there are better places.

Was enticed to this location for their 1/2 apps. We were on vaca at home doing day trips and working around the house. My husband and I, tired from a hard day of work in the yard, decided to take a trip out for some fun snacks. Arrived and greeted by service assistant who didn't speak English. Oh well, we... More

Came here on a Saturday night and got a real treat. The fresh guacamole made table side is a must have, and the complimentary salsa and chips were great. The portions were huge and made for an outstanding money value on both entrees we ordered. The servers here were among the best of any of of the hundreds of Mexican... More

My family and I love La Tolteca. Since the start of the fresh Guacamole, we have become regulars. Made to order at your table with all your favorite ingredients, it is something to behold. I almost always order the #111 Chimichangas-soft with chicken, but have been pleased with other entres. And always one of the best Margueritas in town.
