When we arrived there was two people standing behind the counter and did not even greet us. We was a party of just 3. We stood at the front for about 5 minutes and someone finally came up. We order a steak burrito, beef brisket...More

$5.00 for one taco sure was pricey, but it was delicious. I got the Moby Dick taco which arrived with what appeared to be the fish in a pink food coloring of some type. The pink color could have been something else, but whatever it...More

We stopped here for lunch on vacation and boy were we disappointed. For a family of 5 it cost over $60 for lunch which was a shocker. We didn't see they had fountain drinks until after we paid...they weren't listed on the menu at all,...More

So this place is like a glorified Taco Bell with alcohol. But really not much better. I got a quesadilla and my co worker got a Burrito. Neither were good. Save you money and go somewhere else.

Was pleasently surprised at the quality and taste of the tacos and bowls! Not usual to get something of this caliber in SC. The outside seating area was also a very nice setting with a quite but urban flair.

Sure Fire Tacos and Tortilla Grill is Tex-Mex with a twist. All of our recipes and ingredients are prepared fresh daily, from our five signature salsas to our scratch-made tortillas. Our restaurant offers a casual, inviting atmosphere with an open bar and outdoor patio seating (bring Fido along to enjoy our outdoor area!). With a menu inspired by our Texas roots, we traveled the world to find unique and interesting flavors. From our sweet and spicy mango-habanero salad and al Pastor pork, marinated in fresh pineapple juice and spicy chorizo seasonings, we're bringing a little of the Lone Star state to the Columbia community. Our three favorite things? Fresh ingredients, fun atmosphere, and unique experiences. From hand-rolling our tortillas to preparing each dish made-to-order, we ensure each and every detail in order to bring out the most flavor in each offering. We've created a fun and inviting atmosphere for our team members and neighbors to enjoy -- we aim to be more than just a restaurant, we want to be a destination!
