I grew up in the Sacramento valley in Northern California where good Mexican restaurants are plentiful. In Northeast PA, not so many. That's why I was thrilled the first time we ate at La Tolteca. The food was very good.

We visit Wilkes-Barre once every couple months. Over the course of a year, we ate at La Tolteca four or five times. After the first couple times (which were very good), we noticed the quality of the food declined.

Our last time (about a year ago), the chips tasted like they had been fried in old oil. The rest of the meal was adequate but not the quality it had been. The service was indifferent (again, a change from our earlier visits).

It just reached the point where we decided it was not worth going to this restaurant. We have not been back in the last year. I gave the restaurant an average rating based on all the visits. If I based on just our last visit, it would be poor.

Heard lots of good things about the restaraunt and was not dissapointed. The menu was filled with great entree's and app's. The portions were huge for the price (2 dinners with drinks for $35) they make the guac fresh right at your table, and the drinks were HUGE. The dacquari was served in a fishbowl on a stem ! There medium draft beer was almost 32oz... Definately will be going back again and again.
