This is our go-to place for fast service. They are always so quick and you never have to ask for a drink. My kids love it as well and we bring out of town guests there who love their homemade guacamole. It is filled with...hard working staff. The only thing missing is a good homemade Mole dish but their menu is filled with a ton of choices it never gets old. This is definitely the place we go to when we worry will our kids make it through a meal especially when they were younger. We knew we could get in and out yet enjoy a great adult meal too without breaking the bank.More

Typical casual Mexican place but the food says it all. Each dish is HUGH and well done. Margaritas come in 3 sizes and the biggest is mind blowing and there is actually Tequila in it !!!

La Tolteca is your typical small-town American-Mexican food. Basically pick your favorite little Mexican joint from your home town, and that's basically what La Tolteca is. It's not going to challenge you to new culinary experiences, but it's also not going to disappoint you. If...you're in town for all of the amazing historical stuff, and want a solid and filling meal for the family, this would definitely be a solid choice.More

What a gem! We were able to place an order online for pickup, and the food was delicious! The enchiladas were some of the best I’ve ever had. Decent prices, generous portions, and a friendly staff.

The places you go to regularly are the places where you get the best overall experience. The folks who run this place clearly care. The food is fabulous, prices great, service super, cleanliness top notch. Their fajitas are my favorite, but I've had other dishes...that have been wonderful as well. My photo is of the Texas fajitas - steak, chicken and shrimp... Yum!More

Good food and excellent service! The salsa was tasty without being spicy. They have a nice-size vegetarian portion of the menu too.

Service was good. I had the thin steak cooked med rare and surprise, it was for the most part. The onions and mushrooms were excellent. Spouse had the street tacos which were good too. All together we had a good meal
