Love their burritos! Friendly service, yummy flavours, one of my fav takeaways!

Great to enjoy by the beach, just wish they were in town in the evenings as well as in Oakura.

Have also tried their chicken quesadillas as well, quite nice if those are your thing.

Some of the best value for money I've found in a takeaway.

The food is fresh, loaded with big taste, and generously portioned.

Holy Guacamole makes it easy to ring in and pick up your order, purchase a loyalty card, and make it part of your 'go to' takeaway repertoire.

I get it that they move to the beach in summer, but I miss them in the city.

Walk away full, with a great meal!

Went to the Friday night market and thought we'd try it as we love Mexican. It ended up being a 45min wait for 2 quesadillas which was fine. But they didn't bother to tell anyone, just carried on taking orders without informing anyone of the wait time. Both my husband and I are vegetarian and it always is a bit disappointing when it's the same price for the veggie option as the meat options. However if it's good I wouldn't mind so much! When it came it was quite underwhelming. We got a mushroom oregano one and a corn black bean one. Both came with a sludge of "guacamole " which ironically was terrible!! It was blended up avocado to a puree and it really wasn't seasoned in the slightest. It wasn't a nice chunky guacamole with a limey/salty tang I enjoy.
The quesadillas were fine but just so small for the price. When you can get a large Turkish meal of falafel, salad and rice for the same price (which ironically would take more effort and cost to make..) I just felt a bit ripped off.

Great to find a Mexican food truck serving delicious Burritos on SH45. This would also be great spot to chill on a nice summer evening but it can be busy so pick your moment.

Great Mexican food, delicious Burritos. Also a great spot to chill on a nice summer evening. They have had some live music on Friday recently which really adds to the summer vibes. Food comes out fairly quickly considering the size of the operation.
