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,...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

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...More

We were getting into town around dinner time, so we decided to stop by Taco Boy. It is an easy place to find, right off I26 on Huger St, off the Meeting St exit. It is a little out of the way if you are...More

Taco Boy's options are soft corn, soft flour, or Bibb lettuce shells.
So, is Taco Boy all bar or is it half? We have children and don't want to make them sit in a bar.
