An evening out with the college kids.

A great dinner hangout with lots of seating and greT taco and beverage options. Choose an appetizer to get started and then lots of tacos to pick from.

Great location in downtown Folly Beach with nice atmosphere. I kinda judge a Mexican restaurant on the quality of the Margarita and theirs missed the boat. Maybe I should have upgraded to premium tequila but I like to try the house on the rocks and it just didn't do it. The tacos were good, a little pricey though. Chips with... More

After our son went surfing he was really hungry so we stopped at Taco Boy and we were glad we did. The nachos carne asada and tacos were great! We would highly recommend anyone who enjoys mexican food to stop at Taco Boy who are in the area.

We had forgotten about it being St Pats weekend and the main strip was packed with revelers. I mean packed! Had to drive around several blocks to find a parking spot three blocks away but when we walked up to the packed restaurant there was no wait. We were shocked even though it was only two of us. We were... More

Both the food and the drinks here are very affordable. Try the Carnitas Nortenos. Avoid if you don't like communal seating.

Margaritas are good and so are chips and salsas but the portions on the chips and salsa are very small

I've heard about this place on numerous occasions, and finally ate here. Best ever! I had the Kimchee Beef, grilled fish and braised beef. Kimchee beef were my favorite (but I love kimchee, so bonus!) we were at the FollyBeach location. I understand they have another location in downtown Charleston. If you get the chance to eat here, do!

The guacamole was fresh, the margaritas were strong, and the fish tacos were delicious. Skip the tourist-chic and pop into Taco Boy for a perfect lunch at the beach. It's a little pricey, but definitely worth visiting at least once, if not just for the aforementioned characteristics.

The grilled fish taco is not to be missed! The preparation is minimal so you taste the delicious freshly prepared fish. The Carnitas Norteno taco is also really tastey and I love the chipotle cole slaw. Beer on tap- good to go!
