“Will give it another shot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2010

Visiting our daughter in Charleston, we came down from Maryland and were told Taco Boy was alot of fun and great food. The mexican food was really good and fresh and you got plenty for the price. We sat on the back patio outside and the atmosphere was fun and festive. Unfortunately, I think our server did not see the fun. She seemed to forget about us several times, was annoyed whenever she was at our table and actually forgot to place the order for one of our entrees so the other three members of our party shared their food with the fourth. Since the food took almost an hour to arrive we were not about to wait for the forgotten entree so we cancelled it. We asked for no accommodations to be made for us for our bad service and none were offered. In fact, the waitress did not even apologize and even insinuated that it was somehow our fault. We were never asked if we would like another beer or soda. We politely ate our meal and left a very small tip to the server who was apparently wishing she was somewhere else that day. The food was great and the atmosphere around us was fun. As others have highly recommended Taco Boy as a fun place to get good food just off the beach, we will try it again.....one more time.

“Guacamole to die for...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2010

What a pleasant surprise this restaurant was! I don't normally like guacamole but my wife told me to try it and now I am hooked. We ended up going there every day of our vacation for the dip as well as cold beer and a few tequila "flights".
The restaurant was very clean. The tacos were quite tasty but a little pricey. And, yes, you MUST check out the bathroom. That's all I am going to say about that!

“A piece of mexico at the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2010

Our group could not get over how authentic the outside and inside of this restaurants to those in mexico. Once you were inside the canteena atmosphere was amazing. Pricing, Food, Service were great. It was highly recommended by the locals and they were right. It is only a stone's throw from the hotel. We would definitely be back.

“Tacos were excellent but over priced...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2010

Tacos were excellent but over priced. Order two or you will go hungry. Waiter was great, and the building was surprisingly clean. Not a tourist trap. If you are on Folly Beach you have to stop by.
