We ate at a LOT of good, casual restaurants during our trip to Charleston and Taco Boy was by far our favorite! This was the first time our friends that live there had tried it and will be back with visitors! We really enjoyed the outdoor seating. The nachos appetizer was awesome. 2 of us ordered chicken & cheese quesadillas... More

We ate here with our golden retriever last week. It is a super cool place with an awesome bar area that opens up to the inside and outside. We had the nachos with pork and also the fish tacos. They were both very good! Definitely a great dog friendly place to eat in Charleston!

Fun vibe in this vibrantly decorated Mexican themed restaurant. Music, lively crowd, indoor and outdoor seating and a nice selection of beers and yummy mixed drinks. Service is a little on the slow side but the thought of yummy food makes it bearable. The problem, however, is the food is inconsistent....from wonderful guacamole to a tempura avocado taco that tasted... More

Guy working front had best personality. Wish I remembered his name. Super busy week we went so sat at bar. Decent beer list. Known for their frozen drinks which we did not try. Tried some tacos and loved them. Will go back again and again

First and foremost, order the Street corn. Order lots and lots of the street corn. Secondly, the frozen screw drivers are amazingly delicious and will knock you flat behind if you're not careful! Lastly, the nachos are maybe the most amazing nachos ever. We are here twice in a three day period. It's a great place to hang out with... More

The Chicken Nachos and the Mexican Street corn were the highlight of dinner. We asked our waiter for the most popular tacos and we took his advice. We had a grilled fish taco, chorizo, pulled pork, chimci beef and al pastor. One person is our group had the black bean quesadilla that was delicious and a generous portion. We liked... More

Four of us went for dinner. Ordered tacos and Mexican street corn ( the street corn was always a favorite) at 8:00. Received our food after 9:00 and it was COLD. Not hot or even warm but COLD. Really? It was like trying to eat an ear of corn out of the fridge. And the tacos were just as cold.... More

I have posted previously about poor service at Taco Boy so it is only fair that I follow up when the experience is positive. I have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere but hold off coming here due to service. However, it was suggested for lunch the other day for a large group so we joined. I have to say... More

The place doesn't look much from outside, but it has nice patio, and looks nice inside. Unfortunately they didn't have crunchy tacos or fajitas, but we had chosen different dishes and it was good. I will recommend have a free chips and salsa. Overall it was good.

Thank Zera S
