Good, authentic Mexican food. Restaurant is clean with friendly service. Good variety to choose from and bar is separate from eating area for a more enjoyable and quiet dining experience.

Not as good as the Mundy St location. I had a salad the was half the size of the Mundy St location. Server states they are owned by the same person. On a positive the guacamole was out of this world and made table side.

I had the 3 choice meal. I picked beef enchilada, beef burrito & a poblano stuffed pepper. The enchilada was very good but the burrito not so much. I didn't care for the sauce on the burrito. The poblano was a disappointment too. The stems were still on the peppers so it made it a pain to eat.

I truly enjoy spicing it up a little at dinner time. There is a Great Selection of Incredible Food at reasonable prices. I have been here many times and find the atmosphere and service exceptional. There are selections for children to. The Mexican beers on tap are a nice variety along with the margaritas. Stop and enjoy a relaxing lunch... More

We loved the La Tolteca in Wilkes-Barre, so it's awesome to have one with the same great food and staff closer to home. It's great eating in, but they're also super fast for ordering takeout. Love them!

Date night with my wife and a week before their grand opening. Lots of seating and a big bar. Fresh guacamole made at your table, and they have excellent Mexican food. We will definitely be back.

We go here A LOT! Not only are we closer but we prefer this place over the main restaurant by the mall. We find service and the food to be a little better. I am in love with the Chorizo!! I've never had a complaint coming here. Must trys: San Jose burrito, seafood chimichanga (fried of course!), Chori-Pollo, Chori-Queso (appetizer),... More

This place beats the socks off of the main La Tolteca. Much better service and better food! This spot reminds me of Texan tex-mex restaurants. Just great, every visit.
