Started out in humble beginnings and has quickly expanded to 2 locations in the Bel Air area (8 locations around MD) and turned into the most popular Mexican restaurant in town, prob the whole county. Normal fare of food and drink, but lots of choices, esp. any sort of combo platter you could ask for. Service is good, prices are... More

Great food ! Always fresh and authentic ! Love the taco salad ! My children love their beef soft tacos! Always a wait so be prepared to wait for seating but always worth the wait and great prices

I do not get to eat Mexican often and no one in my family likes it, but when I crave it, I go here! Yum!

Love the nachos and portion sizes for the main meals. Table-side guacamole (made for you on the spot) and chips are a nice touch. Decently priced and does give the "feel" of Mexico. Recommendable.

Terrific food and authentic recipes. Only place within Harford County that will make fresh guacamole right at your table side.

good restaurant but the service is equally crappy.... Bartender was busy chit chatting with some guy while 3 of us struggled to get second round.... despite of ordering 3 beers each we were asked to pay for extra chips since we didn't order food to eat... duh!! She didn't realize we spend more than the guy she was gossiping with....... More

The La Tolteca in Churchville offers the same great food as the Bel Air location, but they have Monday night half-price fajitas, and the dining room seems more spacious. Love the Taquitos, the freshly made guacamole, (right at your table), and the Pollo Loco.

Husbands asks weekly, let's go to La Tolteca! Great authentic Mexican and every item is fresh on the menu. He orders #99 every time. And get the table side guacamole as its fresh and perfect to accompany the warm fresh tortilla chips and salsa you will share before the main dish. Our favorite location is this one in Campus Hills!

Ordered a takeout salad and guac. Guac is the only reason they get a 2. Chicken completely wilted the lettuce. Only took 45 minutes to complete the order. Pass, there are better places.
