Ate here twice during our stay at Folly Beach. Wonderful food. Great atmosphere. And seriously, the best ear of corn I have ever eaten in life.

“Good food and drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

Easy to walk to from our hotel and great place to eat and drink. We ate here twice! Gets busy on the weekends, but worth the wait.

“Hoppin' place, small tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2011

I echo the review below - kids' tacos were bigger than those on the regular menu. First time we went my wife got the wrong order - but not a big deal. We went again a few nights later. Would go again, but it would be better to have larger portions - and cheese on the tacos.

“Tacos were good, but small and overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2011

The main problem of Taco Boy's food is presentation. It's a nice place with great ambiance. When you first peruse the menu you see great descriptions of tacos at seemingly great prices. I had the Baja Fish Taco for 3.95. It was small - about the size of a 49 cent taco from a fast food place. It was delicious but not mind blowing. All the side dishes costed extra. The kids steak taco was great according to my kid. It did not have a tiny portion of cabbage, which made it a dollar less than my similar adult one. Otherwise identical.

If the management presented 2-taco plates with a side dish for 5.95 or so, that would feel like a better deal, and a real deal. . At the 3.95 price point comparisons cannot help but enter the mind to fast food.

The bathrooms were supercool. The decor was great. It seemed very crowded most of the time. There are probably better places to go in Folly Beach.
