“Great little place”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I stop in at the Taco Spot whenever I am in Charleston. They have great quality food at a great price. I usually am weird about Taco places run by white guys, but this place doesn't hurt for authenticity.I'd eat there again and again.

“The best tacos EVER!!!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Who would have known this little place had amazing food! It is a hole-in-the-wall kind of place but the food is some of the best I have ever had. If you like spicy salsa you will love this place!!! I think I will go back to Charleston just to eat here again. Go there you wont regret it!!!

“Surprisingly good.”
Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

On our way to Drayton Hall and decided to grab a bite. We are glad we did. Authentic taste and good quality.
FYI... Order and pay as you go in, even if dining there.

“A sweet little treasure for sure!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

My first time to The Charleston area I absolutely love this little hidden treasure....it was GREAT! I would recommend it to anyone wanting a place out of the more populated areas. The food was fresh and prices were reasonable. Ooooooooooo the desert was absolutely WONDERFUL.
