Reasonably priced and great food! I haven't seen a Mexican restaurant consistently busy. Large outside area in summer. Fast service.

Seriously good mexican food! They actually have a woman making the tortillas, probably the best tortillas I have ever had. My lunch portion of fajitas was huge and delicious. I can't wait to go to Wilkes Barre again to visit this place. Great atmosphere.

This was our second visit to La Tolteca. They have a great selection of Mexican food. Everything we have tried has been very good. We love the Tableside guacamole that uses fresh ingredients! Our 10 year old son loved the fact that he could order something other than Mexican food. Service out on the patio was superb. Wish we lived... More
