La Tolteca occupies the space that formerly housed Al Pomodoro Ristorante, which closed last spring.

Camarena said La Tolteca started 15 years ago in Salisbury, Md., and has spread to Hagerstown; Bel Air, Md.; and York, Pa.

"It's a family restaurant," he said.

The location in Hagerstown will employ 10 to 12 people and will seat about 140 customers, Camarena said.
