Holy Guacamole Santa Monica Reviews
Fast Mexican food on Main Street Sep 07, 2009
Main Street in Santa Monica has many sit down restaurants. However, if you want something fast without all the greasy mess, try Holy Guacamole. Right in the middle of main street is a hole in the wall Mexican place that's pretty bare bones.
No fancy tables or silverware, in fact this place serves food that you can eat with your hands. The menu is pretty simple, tacos, burritos and tamales. You can get the tacos and burritos with any meat you want: chicken, beef, pork, fish or even vegetarian. The tamales are either vegetarian or chicken. They also have side orders of beans, rice, chips, guacamole and salsa. The beans and rice are supposed to be fat and animal free, which is a surprise because both are very, very tasty.
Every meal comes with chips and salsa, with your choice of green or red. They'll ask you which you prefer, but if you ask for both, they will certainly give you one of each. The red salsa is better, but both are very good. If you get a table at the counter you can even watch them make the salsa which is home made, not out of a can or bottle. They also have an assortment of hot sauces to try out. As a free side, they have a container of pickled carrots and jalapenos to add to your meal. The tacos are very good, but the burritos are fantastic. The burrito will be more than enough food or two tacos will fill you up.
The food here is very good and not greasy like your typical fast Mexican food. It's a great quick meal before you head out to the beach of before a stroll along Main Street.
