My wife and I ate here once again last week. Once again, it was a great culinary experience. The Mexican style food was great (especially the Texas Fajitas and the Mexican Steak). We had a very nice and efficient waiter who actually addressed us as "folks" instead of "guys" (my wife is definitely NOT a guy). Good food, good service,... More

I ordered the hard shell taco and next time I'll ask for it on a separate place as the steam and moisture from the other food make it soggy and I couldn't pick it up to eat it. The next... More

For authentic Mexican food, served up fast and piping hot...by attentive and friendly servers, in a very colorful atmosphere...you have to try La Tolteca. I have lived in Arizona and that's where I first was introduced to superb Mexican food. La Tolteca is one of the few Mexican restaurants in WNY that serves that type of fare. Home made chips...

This is my go to Mexican restaurant in Williamsville. They offer a large selection and I have never been disappointed. The margaritas and Coranitas are great drinks. They have lunch and dinner specials which are great deals.

My husband and I both really love the food and drinks here. The chips and salsa starter is wonderful. We both had a strawberry margarita, which we both enjoyed. My husband had the Carnita Burrito, which he said was really good. I had the the two burrito plate (#219) and it was really good. Both the chicken and the beef... More

During our frequent visit to USA, we tried out this restaurant and let me tell you, it was an excellent restaurant. The food was great, and very reasonably priced. Servers were friendly and the whole atmosphere was very lively. We will definitely visit this restaurant again.

I personally love this restaurant!!!!! The best chips and salsa for sure. Great wait staff, and very accommodating with large groups. Authentic Mexican food, with a great atmosphere!!!!! Wait time isn't very long, pending on the time you go!!! Worth the wait, and every time I come here I walk away full and happy!!!! Happy Cinco De Mayo!!!!

Thank Ashley B
