We "discovered" this gem about 12 years ago on a weekend getaway to Buffalo and just keep going back. We have tried many Mexican restaurants in the Buffalo area but this is our favourite, not only for its delicious food, excellent service and clean bright appearance but for its amazing Margueritas. They use a fresh lime mix and high quality... More

Have eaten here several times. The food is great, the margaritas are superb! Staff is friendly, service is prompt. This is our favourite place to eat when we are in the area.

My family loves La Tolteca! It is our favorite spot in Buffalo for Mexican food. The service is always fast and pleasant. The food is done right - with copious amounts of chips and salsa! Our kids enjoy the quesadillas. One caution - this restaurant is VERY busy on Friday and Saturday night, which can make for long waits.

My husband and I were in the mood for Mexican food last weekend and decided to stop by La Totelca. Even the restaurant was crowded, we were seated very quickly. Our waitress was very quick to take our drink order. She was extremely cordial and helpful when I asked some questions about the menu. Food was awesome. I had the... More

Stopped by here to meet our daughter and granddaughter on their way back home. We were seated promptly and someone brought of some nice taco chips and salsa. When we were ready to order we surprised ourselves by almost all of us ordering some form of Enchilada. I ordered the Enchiladas Poblana with a Mole Poblano sauce because I like... More

I was so glad when La Tolteca opened upon Transit a few years back. The food is terrific and the menu extensive. I had the seafood burrito and will definitely try the Sopa de Mers (seafood soup ) next time. They have a good selection of Mexican beer including Pacifico and the place looks like you are in Williamsville. The... More

My wife and I went there on Friday night at 7:30. They were very busy with a 20-25 minute wait. We were already there so we decided to wait it out. While waiting, there were at lease 3 other tables of people in front of us that left because they didn't want to wait any more. Then at least 5... More

My wife and I ate here once again last week. Once again, it was a great culinary experience. The Mexican style food was great (especially the Texas Fajitas and the Mexican Steak). We had a very nice and efficient waiter who actually addressed us as "folks" instead of "guys" (my wife is definitely NOT a guy). Good food, good service,... More
