My boyfriend and I were really excited about going here for the first time. The menu was very limited with only three entrees. First, we asked for a beer menu and was told we had to go to a third party website to view the menu as they no longer "printed" them. So, we ordered margaritas. They were disappointing as... More

They've been around for some time. I found them accidentally while looking for something else. Their food is delicious and different than most Mexican food places you'll try. They are not a very big place but they are popular among the locals. Enjoy!

We went yesterday for my birthday dinner, as I have always heard great things about the place. It was absolutely fantastic! I ordered the taco platter which includes two tacos, rice, beans, and chips. I got a chicken one and a steak taco. Both were fantastically seasoned and well cooked. I was very impressed and even more impressed with the... More

I usually eat here once a week at least. All the tacos are delicious but I usually get the steak burrito. Great beer and liquor selection. Try the nasty nachos! You won't be disappointed

.....but in this case, I'll make an exception. We stopped in here for a late (2:00) lunch on the recommendation of a coworker. The place was nearly deserted with the exception of a few people finishing up, so seating wasn't a problem. Our enthusiastic waitress took our drink order and proceeded to tell us about their menu items and lunch... More

We tried this last week. Very limited and simple menu. Tacos are authentic and do not come with additional items, such as lettuce, sour cream, etc. Food was okay, but probably will not return.

It was obvious that Holy Taco is a college town staple. It seems that beer and liquor are their main menu items, as their food menu is relatively simple. You can get a couple of different appetizers and tacos ... Maybe one or two other choices. But the tacos are good -- small, but good. The pulled pork is especially... More

Food quality is very inferior. Decor is so so. Service is mediocre. What's holy about Holy Taco? The only redeeming quality is the outside dining area. Bring your own food.

This is a funky little restaurant bar. But it has great Mexican food! Wow. We ate with friends at a bar-counter type table. Not that much seating. Active bar. We got recommendations for food from the waitress, and she was spot on. As we finished the place filled up. I think this place must be hopping for late-night crowds. Fun... More

Not Mexican flavor but Very good. The Nachos are great with the pork on them. The service was good. The steak burrito was worth $6.
