First of all... CLEAN, second of all great customer experience. Now, our server was amazing... We love knowledgeable, friendly and attentive servers. Our server was, pardon my spelling, Jadray (sorry) from Honduras was outstanding and management should recognize him. He treated everyone on the patio genuinely giving excellent service! Ok, the food was very good. We both ordered grilled steak... More

Ate here on my sons recommendation. Service was good, complimentary salsa and chips were tasty. I had steak fajitas and my husband really enjoyed the shrimp and crab tacos. Will visit again. Convenient to the Arena.

The shrimp fajitas are always amazing! You get at least a full dozen large shrimp with all the fixings'. We always take some home.

Nothing good to say. Food was all spice and no flavor. Service was very bad. At least hire people that CAN speak english. Waited over 15 minutes to even order, had to chase down the waiter to pay for our meal.....nope, won't return here.

Great location, outdoor seating, moderate pricing, great guacamole. There are several competing good mexican restaurant in the area. I have not tried any except this one and was satisfied with it. The staff, service, food were all great. Did not try but seem like guacamole they prepare at the table got to be amazing.

The restaurant was large, good because the place was crowded but still got us in without waiting. The salsa was a little sweet for my taste but still good. The selection of food was very good. Seafood, vegetarian and beef, pork and chicken. I want to try the table side guacamole, next visit.

The food is terrible for the price. With many new restaurants (opened last summer multiple national Mexican food chains). Have went roughly 4 times due to receiving gift cards from friends, tried three different meals (two times had the normal beef soft she'll tacos) and even the normal soft she'll tacos were droopy and the meat was not drained of...

I ate here with some friends, and we really enjoyed La Tolteca. The service was excellent, the food was great, and the atmosphere was super fun! I would definitely recommend the tableside guacamole (:

I've never had a bad meal here. The service is always good and prices are reasonable. The queso Blanco is delicious and anything pablanos is my favorite.
