Hola Tacos In Lakewood, Ohio
Your New Favorite Taco Joint
This week was the surprise soft opening for the long-awaited Hola Tacos in Lakewood, Ohio and of course, we had to visit! Hola Tacos is a taco stand Lakewood’s Birdtown neighborhood that offers L.A. & Mexican inspired tacos and other fares in a walk-up style taco stand that will eventually have seating, indoor space, and more.
Run by the family who operates Barraco Arepa Bar, another favorite spot, this taco stand will be a simple take on authentic Mexican tacos. Keep reading to see what we thought!
More Than Just Tacos
We arrived, and to our surprise, there was covered seating and space heaters which made eating outdoors on a patio in the winter not so bad. Our waitress brought us a bowl of crunchy taco shells which we thought was an interesting alternative to the obligatory bowl of chips.
We ordered the guacamole to start and it came to the table with a bowl of crunchy tortilla shells. The guacamole was whipped smooth with a sprinkle of cilantro and a couple lime pieces. My native Californian husband loved it as it reminded him of home, I loved it because I hate chunky guacamole!
I originally wanted a burrito but was informed it could serve two. Knowing we weren’t going directly home afterward, I switched my order up to what they call a “Birriadilla Quesabirria”. It was also a lot of food which I had help eating. These things were bursting at the seams with flavor. The rice and beans as a side came with cotija cheese and a sprinkle of cilantro.
Walk Up, Car Service and Patio Dining
When walking into Hola Tacos in Lakewood, Ohio I was pleasantly surprised to see there was covered seating! Opening a taco stand at the beginning of winter is rough, but I felt warm and cozy inside. There were roughly 10 seats that could fit 2-4 people just within the covered area. There were also windows to walk up to and put in your orders. There’s a huge patio space for when the weather warms up and I overheard there will eventually be a more upscale version inside the connecting house that was also similar to a speakeasy-we cannot wait to check that out. Now we eagerly await their grand opening! Do you plan on stopping by Hola Tacos?
