“just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

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.

“Food is good, place is a little run down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

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 tasty. We sat on the patio, which seemed a little dirty (and smoky), though to be honest the inside of the place didnt seem to feel that much cleaner or smell that much better. Nevertheless, the food was good. I would recommend it if you cannot find another place to suit your needs. They are also pet friendly on the patio.

“Nothing holy about it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

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.

“What a great gem in downtown Johnson City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

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 waitress, great food, interesting ambience. One of those neat "finds".

“Awesome burrito”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

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.
