“Can't be beat for food and fun!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

La Tolteca was the go-to place for my friends and I during our junior and senior years at George Mason...quite some time ago now. This place was really my introduction to Tex-Mex, and after being in Texas for four years now, I can honestly say this place still holds its own. The service here is always great; I used to down sodas like they were water, and my glass was always full. The food is good solid Tex-Mex fare - not Mexican - but Tex-Mex. That means you should expect dishes that are heavy on the cheese, and not particularly spicy. But what they do, they do well. I love this place, and I look forward to going back every time I'm in NoVA. Check it out with some friends or family - you'll be glad you did.

“Tasty Tacos”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Here's the scoop on La Tolteca. This location is the original, and Los Toltecas are the others that branched off from this location. The restaurant is full of brightly carved and painted tables and chairs, the service is excellent and I like the food. I had pulled chicken with avocado and sour cream with a choice of refried or black beans and rice. The chips at Anita's are thinner and crispier, but overall I like the food better here.

“Fun Mexican Food”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

This a great little restaurant with really friendly service and great food. The beer is cold and the margaritas are really good. It is a fun and uplifting place to go.

This place is always hopping. Why? Great food, fair prices, super service. Can't go wrong to stop by and have a draft of Mexican beer and chips
