“Good Mexican-style restaurant”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Some family members who are purists turn up their nose to it, but I think La Tolteca is quite good. Service is good, atmosphere is fine, food is good, tasty, well-prepared, nicely presented. Good menu. Not the best Mexican restaurant I've ever been to, but not at all bad.

“Good Mexican food (prepared for the American taste)”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Good food, excellent service in this strip mall Mexican eatery. Pico de gallo could have used a few more squeezes of lime. Salsa was very mild. Large portions good value.

“Authentic Mexican food”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

I had been here years ago but recently went back to check it out again. I was not disappointed Food is so authentic and fresh. I had quesadillas and my husband had fajitas and we loved every bite. I had a mango margarita and it was excellent. Prices are great too. We recently moved nearby so we plan to be back quite often

“Amazing Mexican, Family Owned, Family Friendly, Great Margaritas”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This is the FULL SERVICE La Tolteca at 2209 Concord Pike. There is another La Tolteca named "express" farther north on the same highway. I am reviewing the one with the address listed here.

Located in a strip mall with very little fanfare for curb appeal, this is the REAL THING and has MANY local followers. GREAT salsa. GREAT fresh guacamole. AMAZING margaritas on the rocks with salt. Order the high end margaritas with top shelf tequila.

Somewhat tacky decor, but the owners seem to overhaul it every so often.

Family friendly and crowded during many of the main lunch and dinner meal times. Expect a wait on a weekend evening. Chips and salsa are delivered promptly to the table upon being seated. Waiters and waitresses are friendly, but often, they are Spanish speaking as a first language and aren't very talkative in English. I have found service to be prompt and attentive although lacking much conversation.

Children are welcome and the place has high chairs if needed. The prices are reasonable and the plates of food are plentiful. We often order sides or single quesadillas etc. for our children in lieu of choosing traditional 'kids'' choices. Most every popular / commonly known Mexican item can be ordered as a single item. For example, one quesadilla, one taco, one burrito, etc. SO, if you need to supplement or don't want all the rice and beans, consider ordering a side or a single item.

This location has a bar. Most mixed drinks can be ordered, and bottled and tap beers can be ordered.

If you like Mexican and are in the area, give THIS PLACE a try. Not Tex Mex... the real thing!

“Great Mexican Food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The restaurant is family owned. There is always a family member at the establishment. The hospitality is wonderful and the food is mouth watering fantastic. A favorite of mine is the Chicken Avocado Salad.
