We were pressed for time and needed a quick bite. If you are in a hurry, this is not the right place as we were in a big line up. If you are a healthy eater, this is the right place for you. Lots of fresh food, portions were small compared to the portions in Vancouver. I love guacamole however... More

You can get a burrito, quesadilla, or a taco. You can make it a combo with nachos or with a soda. The meats include pork, two types of beef, chicken, chorizo, and shrimp. There is a veg option. There are several fresh toppings including corn, cilantro and black beans. I do not find anything hot or spicy about the alleged... More

My sister loves Taco Bell, so for her birthday, we wanted to go somewhere similar to Taco Bell. So, we choose Holy Guacamole. Amazing choice. The food is outstanding! Holy Guacamole is similar to Taco Bell in the sense that they sell the same type of food. (Mexican fast food) Holy Guacamole is way classier, cleaner, healthier, fresher, and better... More

I love this place, I work right downtown and whenever people ask where they should go, I say here. I absolutely love it. I always get the naked burrito, and I had it already this week, and twice last week and it is amazing. The thing that I enjoy about it is that it is just like one giant salad.... More

Love this place. As far as "fast food" goes, it is my new favourite. Very quick, made to order, hot food! The hours are a bit ridiculous (closed at 6 today... Isn't that dinner time?). And not open on weekends at the Duke street location. All other locations are open Saturday I believe but not Sundays (which has made me... More

great service, even greater food, you would hope that since the restaurant has the word Guacamole in their name that is would at least be acceptable, well it is more than acceptable, it is so delicious I am now craving it.

I don't understand all the hype - I didn't really care for it. The food is decent and fresh, but I didn't think it was anything special. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there. I had the beef quesadilla - I guess I just expected more from all the reviews and was disappointed.

Let me start by saying that the 3* rating is based on the burrito itself, and not a reflection of their customer service or atmosphere. I work near this location, so I visit it often enough to comment on my observations. I would not say that their food is top notch. It is good enough to fill me up at... More

Thanks for your valuable input. I would like to answer a few challenges that you faced at our Duke Street location. This is our busiest lunch location and no matter how well we staff it the intensity of the lines are very busy from 1130 to 130pm each day. It would be better to arrive prior or after to these...

So I know there are like thousands of these sorts of "fill a wrap with rice and meat" type Mexican places... so I must admit I really didn't have high expectations at all BUT this place was great! The food was really fresh and full of flavour. Staff was friendly and the place was clean and inviting. Also not crazy... More

Love the selection of both the protein,, toppings and sauces. Not at all like a fast food taco place. Like that the menu is small, so they can concentrate on fresh food only. Nothing is heated up in a microwave.
