Our food was very good and fresh. Restaurant was clean and we got very good service. Only issue was super close tables and not much elbow room.

We stayed three nights on Folly Beach and ate here twice. The food is so good and served up in a fun atmosphere. Try the guac and the avocado tacos. You won't be disappointed. They have a skinny margarita that has some club soda in it to cut the sweetness. It made them lighter and more refreshing than the standard... More

This is a must for me anytime I am back in town. Lots of fun and the food is good. Service is great and the drinks make for a good time. The tequila sampler is worth it for those looking to start the night off with a bang.

Went to dinner with friends. Everyone was happy with their choices and wished we had found it sooner. Loved the guacamole and salsa. We did not have to wait to be seated and were served quickly. Our only complaint was that we had to request the salsa and then were told that we would be charged for a second small... More

Hey there, we're so glad you enjoyed everything from your visit during dinner! We do offer a salsa trio, which comes with 3 different salsas, that would have been perfect for the six people in your party. Hope to see you again soon! More

As soon as we sat down with our drinks a family left a table with salsa all over the table. We watched the waitress grab a napkin to wipe the table. Then immediately sat a new family at the table. Just a napkin. No cleaner. Too crowded. I wouldn't bring my 2 toddlers here at night. Waited 30 mins for... More

We grabbed a late dinner one night. The only seating available was on the back patio. We were at the table in the middle of the patio with no overhead lighting. There is lighting above all the tables around the perimeter of the patio. After using the flashlights on our phones to read the menus we were able to order,... More

Expect a wait- no reservations or capability to call ahead, but can drop in and put your name on wait list. Tasty trio of salsas, GF options. Efficient service. Good stop for a quick meal.

After a day at the beach, we popped in to Taco Boy for a quick late lunch. We've been to Taco Boy a number of times and are always pleased. The food is fantastic, the salsa is unique and tasty, drinks (like the margaritas) are spectacular! And the service is great as well. I recommend Taco Boy for lunch or... More

I recently went here after a long day at the beach. We were hungry and the cute outside decor caught our attention. The tacos, yes we're a little confusing. So we just asked the waitress and she told us about them. The tacos were a little small, for the price but they were pretty good. Now I got the Mexican... More
