Our waitress was not the most friendly one. It took a while before we got our food. She got my kids order wrong, but the person that brought our food was nice enough to remake or replace the food we originally order. Overall, I think the place is great, and the food is great.

Every time we go Folly Beach Taco Boy is a must visit. They are always crowded but the service is good. Our waiter was attentive and he checked on us regularly. They have a good variety of tacos as well as other Mexican selections. Taco Boy is probably the busiest restaurant in Folly Beach.

Excellent, and great sitting outside people watching. Really nice after a day at the beach to sit back and enjoy cocktails with family and friends, eat good, laugh much, soak in the beach vibe!

We visit folly Beach many times during the year,, when were in town we always go to Taco boy. My dad loves the fish tacos so much there and they also have the coldest beer in town. My favorite thing to get is the salsa trio for an appetizer. Sometimes will sit outside and people watch which is always entertaining.... More

Tacos are a must! 2-3 should fill you up and they have great drinks with a laid back beach atmosphere. The appetizers at this place are fantastic. We came with a group of 12 and left happy and full.

Tuesday, the last night of our week in Folly Beach, we asked a knowledgeable local resident where we could go for a quick, not overpriced dinner. We were not looking for any particular type of food. He recommended Taco Boy. Upon arriving our party of three was seated quickly. They didn't offer any draft beer I liked. We ordered a... More

My husband and I took a weekend trip to Charleston and decided to check out Folly Beach. Trip Advisor reviews encouraged us to make Taco Boy our choice for an early dinner on Saturday. Upon arriving in town, we realized we'd shown up on Follypalooza day! At first we didn't know if this was good or bad! We managed to... More
