HOLA! Taqueria - Big, Bold Flavors in Roswell

Brisket Tacos with Jalapeno Slaw, Pico de Gallo, and Chipotle BBQ Sauce

HOLA! Taqueria is a relative newcomer to Roswell, Georgia - but it definitely is making an impression in the neighborhood for authentic and delicious Mexican eats.
I've been there twice in the last few weeks and left feeling full and happy. Executive Chef Luis Ramirez' menu at HOLA! has me dreaming about their succulent Lobster Tacos with Pasilla Cream, a citrusy shrimp salad, and the house fire-roasted salsa. Mexican native Ramirez is well-known to the Atlanta dining scene, having developed menus for many beloved restaurants like Vinny's on Windward, Aspens Signature Steaks, Cinco, and Pure.

Another thing that I like about HOLA! is the atmosphere and decor. It's modern, spacious, has clean lines, and is somewhat industrial looking. It's just feels different than your standard Mexican spot. The bar is really attractive and I love the long high top table that runs down the center of it. Although you can order a House Margarita and be perfectly content, there are also interesting options like the Ancho Chile Margarita, Pink Cadillac Margarita, or Vampira cocktail {Halloween anyone?}. I even enjoyed having a glass of Meomi Pinot Noir during my last visit....so wine is an option!

Finally, I will say that HOLA! really has some interesting and unexpected surprises on the menu. Lamb Tacos? Mussels with Chipotle Butter? Pork Belly Tacos? Kale Salad with Roasted Corn Vinaigrette? Yep!
Don't worry, you can get your favorite standards too - burritos, enchiladas, nachos, fish tacos, taco salads, queso dip, etc.
Oh, did I mention that they have a big, ole brunch on Sundays? Haven't been for it yet, but it's on the to-do list!

HOLA! Tacqueria is at 688 Holcomb Bridge Rd. in Roswell, GA.
