Great food, all of it was a little on the spicy side, even the guac. I loved it but be careful if you have people sensitive to spicy food. Service is hit and miss but good attitudes make up for speed. And its Folly, so...More

My daughter and I grabbed a table on the front deck and each ordered a margarita, which was average, not the best, but good. We ordered guacamole and got a huge bowl of guac with plenty of chips. It was fresh and yummy! That alone...More

I LOVE going to Taco Boy whether it is after a day at the beach or for date night. Get the Fried Chicken taco and you will NOT be disappointed. Best guac, queso, and margaritas!

The Tres Leche is such a special treat, as not many restaurants serve it. The tacos are delicious. I think the food is a little better at this location than the one in Charleston, but they are both great!!

This place was recommended to us by a waiter in down town Charleston and we obviously took his advice. Nice place, fun , lots of locals and tourist alike. The food was spectacular and the atmosphere was beachy and cool

The Tempura Avocado Taco is delicious!! I also had the tempura shrimp taco as well as the special which was a Thai chicken lettuce wrap. Those were both good but the avocado was by far my favorite. Fun place, good drinks, good service. It was...More

Taco Boy is a Folly Beach tradition, but I'm considering revising that tradition. On our last visit the service was, quite frankly, not good. After waiting 30 minutes for a table we discovered that the hostess stand had lost our seating request and had to...More

Hi David, Thanks for your continued patronage and feedback on your most recent visit. The molcajete in which we serve the guacamole is lined with a piece of Bibb lettuce as part of a DHEC rule, but we also think it looks pretty nice. Usually...More
