Riding a wave of immigration in the early 1990s, La Tolteca became the restaurant that mainstreamed Mexican fare in Delaware. The local chain has flourished even as new Mexican restaurants have opened. We still can’t resist its homestyle burritos, enchiladas, chimichangas, tamales or chilaquiles. But all things change. Most of the La Toltecas have been renamed La Tonalteca. Whatever the name, the food, atmosphere and margaritas continue to please.
