Great Tacos

Atmosphere is super, and some of the best tacos you'll ever have. A little pricey but well worth the cantina feel and fish tacos

The tacos here are innovative and unexpected -- a variety of sauces and flavors and fillings. I especially liked the tempura avocado tacos -- it's got an unusual sauce and is served with sliced cabbbage filling.

This is the quintessential beach restaurant; filled with young adults, smells like a bar with sticky tables and floor (the bathrooms smelled like sewers). However the guacamole was divine and the margarita had a good kick. The three different kinds of tacos we ordered were good but filled with very little for the price they charged (near $4 each).

Went here for dinner with a large party of friends (9). We were seated outside on the patio which was nice later into the evening. There were plenty of taco options to chose from from standard beef to more unique options (seafood, chicken, veggie). Order at least two and more if you are hungry. Beach attire is completely acceptable. Drink... More

I went to the beach with my parents and was craving tacos. Don't ask...I happened to see this taco shop as we were driving to the pier at Folly Beach. Good thing. They had a good variety of tacos. I had the chicken and carne asada and both were delicious. I see where some say they expected chips and salsa... More

Mom and I stopped in for lunch after a friend recommended it to us. We started out with Casa margaritas and the salsa trio. The margaritas were fresh and delicious. The salsa trio was tasty and you could tell it was fresh. I had the grilled fish taco with a side of danger and the kimchi beef taco. Mom had... More

Glad my sister and I took a ride to Folly Beach from Seabrook on Cinco de Mayo to enjoy the carne asada platter and the grilled corn. Certainly they need to improve the margaritas. We ordered the house margarita and think maybe it was just water and orange juice. Luckily we had a fresh batch waiting for the shaker back... More

You go to the beach to eat seafood but don't forget Taco Boy. Great food and don't think that just because it looks busy at front that you will have to wait forever. We did not. They also have a back patio as well and the inside dining room.

We are from FL where there are lots of Mexican restaurants. You definitely get very little for the money at Taco Boy. I got one grilled chicken taco for $3.75. Price wasn't bad but there were only 3 small pieces of chicken in the whole taco. Most of the restaurants near us give you complimentary chips and salsa. That was... More
