"Choosing is the hard part...one of the coolest menus in town – approachable enough to sate you with rib-sticking quesadillas and enchiladas, challenging enough to make room for not one but two kinds of animal heart (chicken and veal)."

"Chef and part owner Robert Phalen, who is an alumni of Shaun Doty's kitchens, is trying something interesting at this East Atlanta taqueria: Mexican fusion. The result is an incredibly cool neighborhood eatery that's going places with its food that even some of the most daring high-end chefs in town wouldn't dare. Try the chicken heart tacos, and don't miss the pork belly torta."

"Pork belly isn't merely reserved for the super-high end and gourmand-driven fancy spots. East Atlanta's Holy Taco, a hip taqueria off Flat Shoals dishes unique tortas on toasty bolillo-like rolls from Alon?s bakery. The tender pork-belly torta comes with taco-like toppings, including pickled jalapenos, shredded lettuce and is slathered with a zesty homemade aioli."

"Holy moley! Holy Taco is changing the face of East Atlanta’s culinary scene."

"Bringing a taste of Latin American cuisine to East Atlanta Village, chef Robert Phalen augments typical Mexican fare with Peruvian and Colombian dishes, high-end tequilas and plum-infused sangria. The roasted Peruvian chicken can't be beat."
"it's the perfect place to sip on an organic margarita or a refreshing mojito until the wee hours of the night."
