When Ben Arrietta Sr. opened La Tolteca Mexican Foods in 1948 it was to manufacture Corn Tortillas. These were sold to local stores, restaurants and the neighborhood residents. Our Mexican deli featured recipes that have been in the Arrietta family for many generations.
In 1967, the Arrietta family built our own building at 321 N. Azusa Ave. which was to be the home for the tortilla factory and a small sit-down area for diners. In 1981 the family was persuaded to open a dining room to meet the demands of customers for a place to sit and enjoy their meal.
Today, in our new home at 429 N Azusa Ave, Tim and Ben Jr. and sons carry on the family tradition offering diners the finest quality foods, served with the utmost in freshness and consistency. All of the menu items are prepared daily and served in generous portions. No selection is complete without Tortilla Chips and Salsa, both made from a secret family recipe.
La Tolteca Mexican Foods has truly earned its place as a sure bet when you’re looking for excellent traditional Mexican food in a very relaxing atmosphere. If you are planning a party, we cater all occasions.La Tolteca now has a wonderful Banquet room for your private party.
