La Tolteca Express has been a staple in the Talleyville Towne Shoppes for 16 years. But just recently, the restaurant announced on Facebook that it would be closing and a new concept would be replacing it. Casa Tropical Latin Cuisine opened in early March and is now serving lunch and dinner (You can still get your La Tolteca fix in Talleyville by visiting the location at 4147 Concord Pike in the Concord Square shopping center).
Lunch is available from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and the menu includes a Cuban sandwich ($10.49), quesadillas ($10.99-$11.99) and even a burger topped with fresh grilled pineapple ($8.99). There are a variety of dinner entrees (think steak and chorizo skewers, beef ribs covered in red sauce and cilantro and grilled beef tenderloin), soups, salads, plus a kid’s menu and even desserts. Many of the items are also available to go.
