“Unique Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

After several meals of sandwiches and typical southern fried foods, Taco Boy was a welcome change. The wide variety of tacos are about $3.95 a piece and you can order them as you go. Two or three for lunch with a side of rice is plenty. My husband enjoyed the "Mexican Street Corn" which is corn-on-the-cob on a stick, deep fried, and then rolled in some kind of crumbs. He said it was really good. Service was friendly and quick. I recommend the avocado tempura tacos!

“Viva La Taco Boy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Yeah, I am a fan. Taco Boy is the bomb....The Nachos are more than enough for a meal, but I always enjoy trying new Tacos each time...Its so tempting to keep getting the same thing, but branch out and try something new! Next time...Korean Beef Taco! Its my favorite Folly eating joint and mandatory on any trip to the island with me. Thanks Taco Boy!

“Great tacos, slow service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We loved our tacos and beer so much that we returned for a second time. I really appreciated the unexpected ingredients and vegetarian options. The hostesses were friendly and helpful. However, the servers were slow and not very attentive. I do not think this is intentional, just that they need more help at peak meal times and better management. Keep up the great job with food prep and menu options!

HOLA! THank you for your review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your food but not happy to hear this about our staff. We are working to address this issue immediately with our managers and staff. We think on this night the manager cut too many servers too early and we apologize.

COme back and lets fiesta again soon and hopefully you will have much better service.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

The tempura avocado taco on a lettuce wrap was one of the best "tacos" I have ever had. Fun atmosphere, great food and good for kids.

“Great flavor just not enough.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Not your "typical" Mexican place for sure. The variety and freshness of the tacos was impressive. We tried several and liked them all. Fresh guacamole and salsa- very good!! We had app of chips, salsa, guacamole and cheese plus 2-3 tacos a piece. Would have been a great snack but not filling enough for hungry teen boys after a day in the water. Great service! Very quick and attentive waiter.
