Holy Taco—Is It Heavenly?

You can tell by its name, it's not your traditional Mexican taqueria. Otherwise it would be called El Taqueria Santa or something. It's also located in East Atlanta, and like the other restaurants there, Holy Taco brings their own interesting variations of the taco—complete with tattoos and all.

When you order the tacos, you can choose either corn or flour tortilla. They are suppose to be soft tacos, but I think they toast their tortillas too much. I had mine with corn, and they toasted it so much it was almost crunchy. So it made the texture something in between hard and soft taco. It made the taco tough to chew and made it hard to eat.

Their fillings have interesting flavor combinations. My favorite is the chicken hearts. Besides your  traditional onions and cilantros, you can get combinations of carrots, radish, or onions. They also love to stuff their tacos full of fillings. I do like their generosity in stuffing the tacos, but sometimes it turns messy when you eat it.

Some people don't like their chips. I actually like them. They are greasy, but I think that's what makes them taste good. Try the with the queso dip. Es muy bueno. 

They have other items other than tacos, but I haven't tried them. I like tacos, unless they're from crappy Mexican restaurants like Los Bravos or Taco Bell. If you give me good tortilla and good fillings, I usually like them. Holy Taco, even though they're not traditional tacos, taste decent to me. I don't think they're amazing, but they're good enough for a repeat visit. Mr. Kitty gives it 4 paws up.
