We have been to Holy Frijoles several times over the past 3-4 years. The food is all right (keep in mind this is Americanized, mild Mexican food in Baltimore, not Los Angeles or San Francisco), and you won't go broke. But I cannot think of a visit where there wasn't some kind of service issue. One time they messed up... More

Waiter sat us at a very wobbly table. It's not like they don't know. There were solid empty tables available. I call that bad customer service, Asked to be moved to another table. The food was ok. How much could it possibly set them back to fix the broken table? I guess they just don't care, or just keep it... More

Great Mexican comfort food. The fish tacos were excellent as was the steak chimichanga. First rate ( and strong) margaritas. Sit outside if there are open tables.

They dont have the raspberry ice tea so the... More

This place is a hoot. Good food, good attitude, good drink selections, good people in charge, and a really good value in this area of town. Modestly eclectic, and changes to meet the customer's vibe. One time you walk in, lots of families, & a festive feel, next time it's like a musicians convention, and everyones bantering over the latest... More

Poor service and food that was so spicy (chicken enchilada's) that it was uncomfortable to eat made our family's last visit to HF less than appetizing. We originally were sat in a back corner where it's so dark that you can hardly see across the table. I understand the whole "hampden vibe" but sometimes you just need to provide certain... More

A friend brought my wife & I for dinner. Kind of dark & maybe a little too hip for me. But they have the best fish tacos I've ever eaten.

There are rats running around the restaurant and the wait staff simply ignores them!! We mentioned this to our server, he said, we are working on the problem! Nevertheless, we did NOT eat here!

Holy Frijoles doesn't seem to be as good as it used to be. I'd found them reliably tasty before, maybe I've caught them on an 'off' night or their focus has turned toward the bar, but I'm no longer sure it's worth the parking hassle that Hampden can present.

Thank primerstar6
