The table side guacamole and the lunch menu is the best thing about this restaurant! Made to order the guacamole is a must. Lunch menu is a value. They offer a variety of lunch choices at a reasonable price. Generally satisfied with lunch options and the service.

The wife and I were searching for a place to eat and we stumbled upon this place. The food is amazing. My recommendation is the Texas Fajita. Yummy yummy! If you love real authentic Mexican, eat at this place!

Went with a group for a birthday, everything was fine thru dinner, had already paid the check and sat finishing our desserts. Suddenly someone in our party pulled something from her mouth...it was a broken, dirty fingernail from in her fried ice cream!!! Quietly called over the manager and explained what happened. He walked away and came back a few... More

La Tolteca was much better when I visited last about two years ago. I was excited to return but disappointed by the experience. The menu has downgraded, the quality is poor - the food was bland and overcooked... with ONE exception. The tableside guacamole. The one redeeming part of our meal was the freshly prepared guacamole we thoroughly enjoyed. The... More

Loved the table side guacamole. Everyone in our party of five enjoyed their food. Prices are very reasonable and staff is very nice.

While staying at the Hampton Inn nearby, we were looking for a casual place for dinner. We chanced upon La Tolteca while running a few errands. It turned out to be a lucky find since I love tacos. I started with a glass of sangria - nothing special, but decent. My husband had a margarita and had no complaints, and... More

This is the first time I've been here since the remodel after the fire. The menu got much better. Not just your standard Americanized fare. Had a chicken and spinach burrito which was quite good. The tableside guacamole cart is a little over the top, but maybe that impresses some people. I didn't have that, so I can't comment on... More

My wife and I were staying in Wilkes Barre on our way to a family gathering and found this place through Trip Advisor. Authentic Mexican food, great friendly service and reasonably priced.

We love good Mexican food and have been happy with the quality of the meals and service at La Tolteca over the course of several years. Our last visit, unfortunately, was disappointing. The quality and quantity of our meal had gone down since our last visit about six months ago. The service was also not as good. Our waiter was... More
