My family and I decided to stop by Taco Boy for some lunch while were walking around Charleston. And I gotta say, these are among the best tacos I’ve ever eaten. Because it was roughly 65 degrees Fahrenheit outside, we opted to have outdoor seating....More

On a recent visit to the Charleston VA hospital, we stopped in for lunch at Taco Boy. We chose it based on the many positive reviews here on Trip Advisor. It’s an interesting looking place with a comfortable vibe. The queso was excellent, some of...More

Love coming here in the summer and enjoying margaritas on the patio area. Food is pretty good as well but the drinks are better.
