We were visiting from out of town and went here with our daughter and son-in-law. We loved the bright decor. A real treat to the senses. Everyone at our table was quite happy with their meal. I found my Margarita a little sweeter than I like, but not bad. My husband was not happy with the salsa--but he added some hot sauce to it and that improved it. It was a very busy Friday night and may not have been up to their usual standard. It was good, not great. I wouldn't mind going back again and giving it another try as everyone else thinks it is so good.

My wife and I always go to La Tonalteca. They have the best staff and the food is the best Mexican we have ever had. Great place and the prices are good as well.

BEST Tortilla soup on the planet!!! $3 Margaritas on Wednesdays are a great way to end hump day. The wait staff is always friendly and helpful.

The furnishings are very colorful, just like old Mexico. The food is original Mexican and the service is always good. The owners care if patrons are having a good meal. The prices are also very reasonable.
