Herrera was actually involved with opening another La Tolteca in the Newport area of northern Delaware when the restaurant group found the site in the Mid- way Shopping Center. Priorities changed, and in record time the Rehoboth Beach location was transformed from its prior Ameri- can family-style diner to a festive authentic Mexican restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating.

"These are universal items that are popular and that you can find any- where you go in Mexico." La Toiteca prefers doing well- known Mexican dishes because they are less time consuming to prepare than some regional spe- cialties. Most of those items are also familiar to people going in to dine, and it makes it easier for them to choose. "Chile rellenos, chimichangas, fajitas and enchi- ladas are probably the most popu- lar items we sell" said Herrera. Those are only a few of the many offerings that also include burri- tos, tacos, chalupas, quesadillas, mole and some less well-known items.

The menu contains a thorough description of Mexican dishes to help make a selection easier and so customers may be better informed. La Tolteca is a bustling place. On a busy Saturday night, the restaurant can serve up to 1,000 dinners. Herrera estimates it can go through two cases of avocados on a busy day - just to make its guacamole, which is freshly pre- pared daily. La Tolteca also makes its own tamales. "This is quite a process. It takes a lot of time to make them, and it takes two hours to cook them," said Herrera. Ingredients such as fresh beans, corn husks and tor- tillas are all acquired from El Maical, a specialty purveyor of Mexican foods.
