In the area around Azusa there is no shortage of Mexican restaurants, however, walking into La Tolteca is like walking into a cantina in a small Mexican village. They even have a fountain in the courtyard in front of the entrance. Great atmosphere and some...More

Went here after checking the reviews and decided to give it a try. Good food and nice size portions. The standard salsa has no kick but you can ask for spicy salsa also. My favorite part was ordering and paying fast food style, but having...More

The food here is average. But there's a ton of seating so if you're with a large group it's a great option. There's also plenty of parking and the staff are friendly.

Quick, good and affordable Mexican cuisine especially when you're among a large party of friends. Order food and drinks at the counter. Find tables for your party and just a short wait for the food brought to your table.

I find it is difficult to locate good tamales, if they are even on the menu at all. At La Tolteca for lunch, I ordered a beef tamale with rice and beans. The tamale was outstanding. The masa was moist and flavorful, and there was...More
