Holy Taco offers casual Meixcan fare in a fun neighborhood environment. Go in the summer for the awesome patio.

Not your typical taqueria. Case in point? Ox tail enchiladas, young goat tacos and sweet arepas.

Charging for salsa? No me gusta! – The food at Holy Taco is alright, but them charging for each thimblefull of salsa you are given is ridiculous. Ya'll, tomatoes ain't that expensive! I wore my best bulletproof vest to East Atlanta and this is how you treat me?

awesome local bar – I love Holy Taco. EAV has 3 Mexican restaurants and this is by far my favorite. The Pork Tortas are the best, but everything I've had there is awesome. The salsa is a little pricey but it is fresh. Go with the Veggie Taco instead of ordering the rice and bean separately, it's cheaper and better!

Awesome mojitos & Margaritas – We just moved to the area and were looking for a place with good mojitos and margaritas. Although the drinks were small, they were very strong and tasty! The homemade chips were very yummy! This will definitely be a spot we visit frequently.

Yum-O Mexican In East Atlanta Village! – EAV scores again, with this ultra-cool Mexican joint, with one great patio. And the prices are too good. What a good change from all the frou-frou cantina's around the city. We started with two terrific organic Margarita's, and some wonderful Spanish Style Gazpacho. And another one of those Margarita's. We both had to get a Grilled Shrimp Torta, which was out of this world. And Grilled Corn on The Cob w/White Mexican Cheese. This place is worth a drive from Buckhead anytime, and the this time of year, dining alfresco is pure heaven. And the service, with-out Buckhead attitude, was right on.

Holy Taco one-ups the EAV Mexican competition with a charismatic menu and one of the best patios on the east side. – In Short
The sleekly designed digs look like Chipotle on a padded budget--uncharacteristic for the 'hood but cool all the same. Giant glass garage doors open up to a modern and spacious outdoor patio framed by light boxes. The menu is what you'd expect from an established chef, peppering taco-stand staples with a little pizzazz. Skip the uber-fried and surprisingly bland chips-and-salsa pairing, and opt for one of their tortas, a Mexican sandwich stuffed and served on a near-perfect roll from Alon's Bakery. Tacos are standard fare at standard price, but the roasted corn on the cobb, draped in white Mexican cheese, shines. Although it's not EVA's go-to genre--burgers and beer--this cantina has comfortable classic writen all over it.

Organic food and an open airy patio great for after work. – Organic, free range, antibiotic free food has never been this delicious or this inexpensive. Local producers help to keep only the freshest of food coming out plate after plate. With a lively patio and cool causal interior, Holy Taco is truly heaven sent. Not JUST a Mexican restaurant, this Latin themed casual restaurant is a convenient spot to drop into after work with friends and enjoy an evening of great food and drinks.

The chicharrones de pollo are an amazing starter coupled with the tortas (beef brisket) for dinner. Try the homemade organic margarita--you won't be disappointed. There is no question that this will be one of my regular meeting stops with friends.

Chili Rellino Rocks! – Never had a bad meal at this place. The staff is always awesome. Great patio, great Chili Rellinos, Great shrimp Tortas!

It's a little off the beaten path, but well worth the trip!

New Twist on affordable Mexican – A great place to go hang out on the patio, have some good drinks and great food. The cheese dip and chips are addictive. Never had anything like them anywhere! The Carne Asada Torta is wonderful and the bread is homeade, crunchy and delicious! The food is not greasy, overcooked or overspiced like some mexican restaurants. Everything tastes freshly made. Love the music! Great mix of everything. We had a neighborhood party there and they handle larges crowds beautifully! I can't say enough good things about it! A great addition to the already wonderful East Atlanta Village.

Best taco's and torta's in town – This place is the place to go if you want a taco or torta the way they are meant to be made.

Be sure to have the grilled corn too.

Crave is closed for business as of March 2007. – The Scene
In burgeoning east Atlanta village, the space that once housed Iris is reborn as a welcoming bistro with blood orange walls, cushioned booths and a bar lounge with a flat-screen TV. Converted garage doors open up to a spacious, breezy patio, where groups like to mingle. Service is generally pleasant, though wait times vary depending on the night.

The Food
Described as eclectic American cuisine, the menu has hints of Asian flair with such ingredients as ahi tuna and baby bok choy. Starters are a must, particularly the perfectly crisp stack of fried green tomatoes and tender braised short ribs with a horseradish mustard dip. Classic standards such as burgers come with the requisite fries and the stuffed shrimp po'boy is dressed with a spicy remoulade. Wrapped in nori seaweed, the miso-sesame seared salmon is delicately seasoned and artistically balanced atop a bed of coconut jasmine rice.
