First experience was on Dec. 26 and really enjoyed it. My spouse and I took our baby and toddler, which can always go any direction. However we were given a great seat that worked well for the kids.

The atmosphere was excellent. We really liked the cozy booths with curtains and the general ambiance of the place. The food was very good - I had a great chicken taco salad and spouse had the 3-taco item.

The waitress was very nice and accommodating, although service was slow at the outset. She appeared to be busy. Towards the end our toddler dropped and broke a glass and the server was immediately helpful and gracious, which we really appreciated.

We hope to come back kid-free next time to better enjoy the food and some adult beverages. Good work Holy Taco!

Been there three times before and food was great. But last night (Saturday) it was busy and the food did not rise to the level of our previous outings. The mole rojo and mole verde enchiladas were dry, lacking in any spicy tastiness, and basically bland. The chili relleno, which a couple weeks ago had been fabulous, was this time, also bland and nondescript. My wife had the adobo steak bowl and the steak was tough and the entire dish was lacking in taste and spice.

Not sure if there's a new chef, it was too busy, someone forgot to spice up the recipes, or what. But the evening had been highly anticipated because of previous good luck, but turned out to be a gastronomical bust. I hope it was an aberration and not the new normal.

Great casual bar/restaurant in Lake O. Tacos were great. The bowls were a little less flavorful, but also pretty healthy. Service was mostly good, but our salads came out after we had our main course...I never understand that one. Otherwise good spot for a casual dinner.

Pretty good dinner overall. Waiter was not as knowledgeable as other servers we have had on previous occasions. Also, he was too quick to bring us the check without asking if we wanted an after dinner drink or coffee, or desserts which of course we did.

I had 2 tacos and they were pretty good tho quite small. My 3 friends all got something different. One friend could not eat hers because it was so spicy hot which was not mentioned on the menu. She told the waiter but there was no mention of her not having to pay for it even though she had about 2 bites. My other two friends said their food was good but not great.I ordered ice cream, but never got it so we finally just paid and left. The music was way too loud and not good music. We could barely hear each other talk. Why not have some nice hispanic music to create the feel of being in Mexico?
