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

We visited Taco Boy while on vacation. It had been recommended us by a friend and it was a good recommendation. It's a tourist area, so expect it to be a little pricey. We sat outside and people watched while enjoying our meal. The food was very good and there was enough to require a to-go box. Parking is at... More

After all the good reviews I was excited to try Taco Boy out. My husband and I were very disappointed. We each had two drinks that were just okay (one was a beer so hard to mess that up). Of the four kinds of tacos we had one was good, two were okay and one was dry and salty. Sadly,... More

Very good and complete menu of Mexican food. Three choices of seating areas, Center Street outside seating, inside seating and back patio. Truly good Mexican food. Two levels up from the usual.

It's a great place for interesting flavors in tacos but to take a hungry grown man after a day at the beach could hit your wallet hard. The margaritas are fabulous and moderately priced and they do have specials on them.

The first time I went here was a few years ago and it was not good. But when we went on our vaca this time it was very good. And very cheap! I will definitely be back! It was a little cramped inside especially if you had strollers but the food was worth it!

Everybody was starrting to button down the hatches getting prepared for Hurricane Matt. Even with all the extra planning, the food was still good and so was the service. Weather was still so pleasant we ate outside. Going back to SC next month, and will probably stop in for lunch.

Been here a couple of times and every taco we've had has been great. Meat is really tender and the tastes are great and varied. The salads are plentiful, maybe too big for some and guacamole is a hit. The restaurant inside is nice and varied and a great deck out back where dogs are allowed.
