“Yum!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Our family walked down to Taco Boy after a long morning and afternoon on the beach. We were very hungry. We choose selections that we felt would be enough to fill us up without blowing our dining budget. My husband and I split the chicken taco platter and our daughter got the kids cheese taco. The platter was enough to split, but mainly because our daughter fell asleep at the table (literally), and we ended up getting to have two tacos each. The platter comes with three small soft taco shells and two generous sides. We got the rice and black beans and both were delicious, as were the fillings for the tacos. I do regret we didn't get their chips and guacamole (looked amazing), though it would have added more to our bill than we were willing to put into a quick beach lunch. Would definitely go back, very fresh and delicious!

“Fun, food, & cocktails!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

I visited Taco Boy with a large group of adults and kids and again with just adults. The menus is fun - the tacos aren't traditional, but very good. Also, we had some vegetarians in our party and there was plenty for them to choose from. All the adults liked their cocktails. Our table had sangria and margaritas and they were great. The guacamole was a tasty appetizer. Servers were always friendly and knowledgeable. The down side is that since Taco Boy is so popular, the wait can get pretty long. Also, it's loud so if you want to converse with someone who is not right next to you, sit on the patio.

“Excellent Tacos”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

They have the best tacos ever! It has fun Mexican decor. Nice drinks! We'd definitely go back. We didn't get a chance to do so, but it would probably be a lot of fun at night. We were there for lunch.

“Worth a try for lunch”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We didn't love it. They offer a lettuce wrap alternative but don't do it unless you want to eat your taco with a knife and a fork. The tacos are very small, so not so good if you are hungry, at $3.95 to 6.95 per taco it can add up fast.

“Great Meal After A Day At The Beach”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Taco Boy is a great restaurant for lunch or a light meal after being on the beach. I got two tacos and a margarita...all very good. Atmosphere is great too.
