Been here dozens of times and not once was I disappointed in the food or service. Prices are very reasonable and portions are excellent..you won't leave still hungry. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Salsa is excellent as well... Best Mexico in So Md.

We live nearby and stop in frequently for dinner at La Tolteca. The food is great. The staff is wonderful. Prices are very affordable, as well. We love La Tolteca!

We were really excited to try this place based on reviews. The couple we walked in with raved about it too. The service was spot on, but everything else was mediocre at best. The salsa had the consistency of tomato soup, no chunks at all. The pork dish featured very square little fatty chunks in a murky sauce without much... More

I have been here many times, and have tried different meals. I have not had any bad meal here. The service is excellent. All the servers are friendly and go out of their way to make sure you're having a good time.

The service and the food are fantastic. The food is always fresh and hot. The servers seem to always have a perpetual smile on their faces, no wonder, the place is wonderful. Enjoy the fishbowl margarita. The Chimichangas are the best in the area.

Great place for good Mexican food. The "big" margarita is an understatement. It is huge and very good! The chips are crispy and the salsa has the right amount of kick without burning your taste buds.

Perfect if your craving really good Mexican food and cold beer! I went back two more times during my stay there for work. It is located beside the Outback Steak House, so you have to look for it.

La Tolteca's food is like a lot of food you have probably eaten at similar "generic" establishments, i.e., heavy, not too flavorful, fatty, and generally forgettable. However, there are those days where you are just looking to get some food in your stomach, and in that regard, LT, is adequate (though barely). The restaurant itself is a little gritty and... More
