Great Tacos

The tacos and quesadillas are fantastic here. The service is fast and they have both inside and outside seating. Highly recommended

Love the fish tacos on bib lettuce. Great salad and it tastes so fresh. This is a great place to eat after you've been out on the hot beach all day. Very refreshing.

Nachos were huge portions and tuna taco very good! Not the cleanest place...tables sticky and had to change tables because of an air conditioner vent dripping over us. Service was good and staff friendly. Went to early dinner.

Great mexican and a must visit in Folly Beach! This is the original Taco Boy, and the tacos are really delicious! The drinks are very good too - you cannot go wrong! It's a very cool, low key and artsy atmosphere and fun foe the family, friends or a date! Portion sizes aren't big and no free chips/salsa just FYI.

Small portions and mediocre food, I was told by the waiter that the "market price " guacamole was $4.95 and when I got the check , the price was $8.95 !!!!!!!.

My wife and I ate at Taco boy while on vacation at Folly beach. The "meal" was expensive and extremely small. I left the restaurant hungry. I felt it was about the size of an appetizer at most other restaurants.

Blink and you may miss the entrance but Taco Boy is a little gem on Folly Beach! LOVE the layout (you can dine in or out on the back patio) and the ambiance/decorations are on point! Quirky and fun! I had a margarita (delish!) and the tacos are amazing. There are a ton of options to choose from (literally something... More

We overheard a family talking about Taco Boy and decided to try it our last night in Folly. So glad we did. Everything was excellent. We tried more than half the taco menu, had nachos, platos. (Similar to fajitas) and great drinks. There were two patios outside and a cool inside as well. We tried the street corn that was... More
