Craving meat? Don't discount the fantastic vegan taco. Add a lovely patio plus margaritas and you get a great afternoon.

ordered 5 of 8 tacos. all were over dressed with some pickled thing or another. the only one that lacked proper dressing was the beef tongue, which had no onion, no lime, and virtually no cilantro....i have never been offered a tongue

This place is a little piece of awesome in the EAV, and its completely worthy of your food snob love. Also, Holy Taco has got to have one of my favorite patios in Atlanta. Its huge. Its rarely completely full. It offers great

Holy Taco has some of the best chips and queso in town. I've had tortas that are small but pack a mighty punch flavor wise. The paella is very good as well as the Cuban sandwich. You get a sizable portion. I've always had leftovers the day after dining there. Their outdoor patio gives you a chance to enjoy the weather and people watch. One of the best patios around.

This is a good Mexican restaurant with decent food, strong drinks and a great patio. I went during the East Atlanta beer festival and they didn't plan well and ran out of food for a while.

Great guacamole. They have a lot of food on the menu that caters to vegetarians as well. Their outside patio is great for spending time with friends. They're also pet friendly.

Diners looking for an intown restaurant that welcomes hungry folks of all ages can head to Holy Taco for a truly kid-friendly atmosphere and menu. Small portions of regular menu items, organic juices and only healthy ingredients make Holy Taco an ideal stop for parents who want good food even when they have kids in tow
The Menu de Nios brings Mexican and South American dishes down a notch on the spice charts, offering selections like a variety of quesadillas, chicharrones de pollo (fried sliced chicken), whole roasted corn and twice fried green plantains. Most of the children??s menu items run about $4. For the beans and rice crowd, a side of each of these can be ordered together for just $5 total. There are smaller versions of the desserts too ?? sopapillas or churros with cinnamon and sugar. Young diners can wash it all down with organic milk, organic apple juice or a pineapple or grapefruit fresca.

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?

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

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

Went with a group of 6. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was outstanding! The short ribs were wonderful. Also would recommend the calamari and crab cakes as appetizers.

This is the perfect spot for a great restaurant. Too bad Crave misses by a mile. Our ribs were very fatty, the tuna was overcooked to the point of nearly being tuna jerky, and there's not enough range in wine prices. Overall, we felt we

It's an interesting concept of comfort food/the things you crave but don't try anything on the menu that is ambitious. My husband and I were disappointed and wished we had stuck with the safer bets. His ribs were almost too fatty to eat

ate at Crave with friends for dinner. My date got the tuna which is typically seared and raw in the middle. But it wasn't the freshest cut. Everybody was disappointed with their meal, except me. I had the pork and it was ok - nothing
