Looks can deceive. This little hole in the wall with a small counter and a few tables delivers one of the best burritos that I have ever had. Nice selection, including a delicious fish (cod) one. Large portion, fresh ingredients. Well worth a detour if you are in the area. Right on Main Street in the commercial district.

Holy Guacamole is an amazing hole in the wall spot on Main street Santa Monica. Main St as a neighborhood different vibe then the rest of Santa Monica. Its is way laid back and small towney. This is the legendary Dogtown after all. Skateboarding as you know it started here. Netflix that. Then come get some authentic style street tacos at this family run spot. Simple. Fresh. Killer. And "mad dog" hot sauce if you wish. Beach town y'all.

You'd never expect to see it at first ,I was walking along main street and I noticed this window, you would think its part of the coffee place, but there is a door next to it.

When I walked in, there was a counter and you can see the chiefs cooking the different meats for the dishes. I had a good feeling the food was going to be good.

As a matter of fact , my burrito and tamale were incredible, I never had such great tasting authentic mexican food as good as this.

I also liked the display of hot sauces they had on the shelves, then again I love spicy food.lol

Holy Guacamole was indeed heaven, I hope to return soon.

We felt fortunate to find this little place while walking around Santa Monica! We are Mexican food lovers, and this place was fantastic! It's nothing fancy, but perfect for a casual lunch. Delish
