the beans for take out take on the metal taste and have hard dry edges.seems like they prefill the beans and rice just needing to add the entree'. also entree' portions seem smaller with take out.
the salsa with the chips is not very spicy,almost like canned tomatoes.
on my last visit the food seemed over salted.
over all I like it,but the spouce is not happy with it now. don't call in your take out -go and order there it makes a difference. and check to see you get tortillas etc,

Pros: food is very hot you have to wait for it to cool a bit.

Cons: take home is in alum pans like deep tv dinners,

.

By moving north a few blocks both the parking and separation of 'to go' and in-house dining lines is greatly improved. Also, the interior of the new building matches the great food .... finally!

PROS: Food quality has remained outstanding as growth has increased.
CONS: Consumer since early 1950's as a young child and haven't had a complaint yet.

And I'm not just saying that because the owners are personal friends of mine. They really put their heart & soul into their food & you can taste it. God bless your up & coming new BIG location!

This is my ultimate favorite place to eat, and it is very popular in this area. They serve real Mexican food. They make salsa and chips that you can buy and take home to snack on. The service is with a smile too! That is always nice...Plenty of parking too!

Authentic mexican food with family atmosphere. Salsa is really world class, and enchiladas are too. Wonderful place to meet friends and convenient location just off the 210. Make sure you know Azusa Ave is a one way street there. Prices are very affordable with great fast service.

PROS: Authentic mexican food, nice family service, good meeting place, great salsa!!
CONS: Parking can be a hassle. Closed on like Mondays or is is Tuesday ???

La Tolteca has been around for a long time! If you are in the mood for great authentic mexican food at reasonable prices this is a wonderful place to try. Out of all the restaurants that have chips and salsa La Tolteca is by far my favorite.

Simply the best Mexican restaurant around! Their homemade salsa is perfect, plenty of flavor, and a nice kick! Their homemade chips are perfect.

However, these only accompany some of the best meals you will find anywhere. All of their dishes are wonderful, as shown by the huge crowds that are present virtually any time they are open. I have heard people talking in line, who have driven over an hour just to get the "fix". It is well worth the trip.

They will soon be moving into a new, much larger building, just a couple of blocks north of their present location. This promises to have a more elegant setting than their present, which is very informal.

Oh how we miss your food! It is quick and so delicious. We have been in Germany now with my husband stationed here in the Air Force and you do not know how MANY Southern Californians I meet here that miss you like we have. Your salsa is the BEST! I used to order the largest container of it to go along with the chips. If only you guys could make it here it would make the long wait to get back to Calif. that much shorter. Keep up the good work and I sure hope to see you again SOON!

We frequent this place often. During the holidays we buy our masa here for tamales. For parties we order several pounds of chips, cheese, salsa & the chunky gucamole, they also sell tortillas and containers of fresh cooked refried beans & rice. The mole & relleno sauce is wonderful to buy and use on some of your home style dishes. We prefer the taquitos with chunky gucamole. the carne asada plate. The large tostadas and the wet burritos and of course the delicious fresh chips & salsa. The place is more fast food style, almost everyone that works there is family. Self seating. The place & the parking lot gets crowded.

Well since i have been eating at La Tolteca I found that the salsa is great! The food is also very good, but the place is not that nice, its like a fast food, so its best if you go with people that you already know. But if you havent gone before i would definetly recommend you go and give it a try.
