“Great stop for tacos.”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We always like to stop at Taco Boy when we visit our kids in Charleston. Outdoor seating, kid friendly, and good food. The waitstaff has always been great.

“Great tacos! Unique to the area”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Great place for tacos. Reminded me a lot of the restaurants I grew up with in Austin, Texas.
Nice casual vibe. Wonderful trio appetizer, great queso and wonderful guacamole and possibly the best homemade salsa I have ever had.
Good variety of types of tacos so there is something for everyone.

“A favorite lunch spot”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

If you're a visitor to the area, don't let the location or the outside deter you from giving this place a shot. The food is fantastic! If you're looking for a place to go with kids, sitting out on the patio, is a great option. It's also pet friendly on the patio, so that's a plus for the dog owners. They have some really delicious margaritas and their black bean quesadilla is my absolute favorite. However, don't expect to get complimentary chips and salsa delivered to your table here. They do have a great appetizer for chips and a trio of salsa's that rocks, but it's definitely not complimentary.

“Good food, Good environment, Good times”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

My wife and I love Taco Boy. We go here often with friends or for a quick, late night bite to eat. The portions are great, the chili (vegetarian) is delicious and not too spicy. I really enjoy the bar area as it's great for watching sports. There's a wonderful outside area with tables and umbrellas. This is a happenin' spot, so make sure you're ready to deal with obnoxious people in the late hours. But if you want a good place for happy hour, to watch the games or grab lunch then give Taco Boy a try.

“Just Okay”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

The ambiance was very nice, but noise level is very high. If that bothers you, be wary.
Nice outdoor seating. Very attentive waitress.
I had the Nachos appetizer, not impressed with flavor or quality of nachos or ingredients.

Probably would not visit again.
