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...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!

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

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...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.
