Terrible mahi taco, tasted like a frozen fish stick! Bathrooms very bad odor. We ordered 2 tacos, and had to actually pay extra for salsa/pico. Don't recommend.

Hi there, we hope you let your server or a manager know you didn't like your fish taco so that we could find something else for you to enjoy. With so many taco options to choose from, you're sure to find something you like on our menu. All of our salsa and sauces are made fresh daily in-house, so, naturally,... More

At first glance this place seems like your typical bad Mexican food place. How wrong I was. Visited Taco Boy twice during the past week. The salsa, guacamole, and sauces are so good. The menu is creative. The tacos are wonderful. i had a special (with advocado) that was different but delicious. The margaritas are absolutely wonderful and a very... More

This is a neat little taco place in downtown Folly Beach. We ordered the salsa trio and chips, ahi tuna, shrimp, and grilled mahi-mahi tacos. All of them were very good, but my favorite was the ahi tuna. We also had a side of rice and coleslaw. Everything was great! We will definitely go back!

Aesthetically pleasing atmosphere with a lively crowd. Low cost, high-quality tacos with unique combinations. Amazingly fresh guacamole. Terrific margaritas

We came for dinner during a winter weekend, and it was not too crowded. The service was very good. We ordered guacamole as an appetizer, and it was huge and delicious! We took more than half home. Two of us ordered 6 tacos so we could split and try more. The meat ones were average (chicken, pork, steak) but the... More

Our waitress was not the most friendly one. It took a while before we got our food. She got my kids order wrong, but the person that brought our food was nice enough to remake or replace the food we originally order. Overall, I think the place is great, and the food is great.

Every time we go Folly Beach Taco Boy is a must visit. They are always crowded but the service is good. Our waiter was attentive and he checked on us regularly. They have a good variety of tacos as well as other Mexican selections. Taco Boy is probably the busiest restaurant in Folly Beach.

Excellent, and great sitting outside people watching. Really nice after a day at the beach to sit back and enjoy cocktails with family and friends, eat good, laugh much, soak in the beach vibe!

We visit folly Beach many times during the year,, when were in town we always go to Taco boy. My dad loves the fish tacos so much there and they also have the coldest beer in town. My favorite thing to get is the salsa trio for an appetizer. Sometimes will sit outside and people watch which is always entertaining.... More

Tacos are a must! 2-3 should fill you up and they have great drinks with a laid back beach atmosphere. The appetizers at this place are fantastic. We came with a group of 12 and left happy and full.
