I have to say that this has two sides to it. One which is the gimmick and the fun and the tourist part etc... The other is the locals part. I'd like to hope that I fit in with the locals. We called ahead since it was off season, we wanted to come back to Tides and also Taco Boy... More

The tacos were so so good! They were open pretty late too. We would go back there to eat. The atmosphere was fun also.

I've been coming here for years. The food's always great. Definitely check out the nachos though. They're amazing!

If you are in Folly Beach, or James Island, South Carolina, you should go to this fun little place. As expected, it specializes in tacos, but there are other items on the menu as well. I went here twice, once for dinner and once for an appetizer. The tacos work for both. The tacos are smaller than many, two or... More

The corn on the cob is a must try if you eat here, best thing we had. The tacos we chose (grilled mahi-mahi, shrimp, kimchi beef, and seared tuna) were good, not great. Margaritas were good. I would not go out of my way to eat here again.

Taco Boy, like all the eateries on Folly Beach, is a bar and a restaurant. They limit smoking to the back patio though, which is nice. There is a wide variety of interesting tacos. They have fajitas, though they call them platos. The flank steak is great. Mexican street corn is great.

I love the tacos here som much! I ate here twice in 2014: Easter in April and again around Labor Day. Service can be a little bit slow, but so's most service at the beach. Love, love , love the chorizo and potato taco!!! An excellent value for yummy food!

Walking distance to Tides and beach. Good food. Reasonably priced. Nice for tacos and a beer after hanging out on beach all day!

First visited Taco Boy 8 years ago, could not wait when I knew I was going back to Charleston to re-visit. Even though it was late September, was great sitting in the back in the open yard, sun cascading down.. Ordered my Taco's when they arrived with my Ying Ling beer, just as good as I remembered. Great value, great... More

We popped in to kill time before checking in to our condo - glad we did. The service was great. The weather was chilly, but the decor inside was warm and cozy. The bloody mary's are excellent and the menu had something for everybody.
