“Love this place”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

Monday and Tuesday $4.75 large, great margaritas. Beer on tap is small or really large!! They have a new burger that's incredibly juicy!! I love their guac, cheese dip, white sauce (excellent) and their shrimp dishes. Bathrooms needs remodeling but the food is great and the staff are friendly. Sit at the bar, enjoy!

“Bland food.”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

We ordered 2 combo plates, Beef burritos, chicken enchiladas, chalupa. Refried beans are canned, and all the food had no taste to it. They serve chips and salsa with your order as an appetizer, which is great and the chips are very good but the salsa is boring. No wonder they have 4 different hot sauces in bottles at each table. Wait staff very good, attentive and friendly. Why no women though?

“Probably as good as it'll get in Portage”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Portage isn't known for it's restaurants so La Tolteca is most appreciated. What I love most is the decor - wonderful carved and brightly painted tables & chairs that just cheer you up when you walk in. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. I'm particularly partial to their soups although they are usually only lukewarm, instead of hot, and the carnitas. Worth the stop if you're in the area. And check out the lunch specials - can't beat the price.

Nice Mexican place - recommend to anyone visiting the Portage area. Bypass all those fastfood joints, sit down, relax and enjoy a fantastically meal.
