While vacationing at Folly beach this was one of our favorite places to eat. Not only is it conveniently located with a fun atmosphere, but you have your choice of dining inside or out. Interesting, fun decor and many more menu options than you would imagine. It is often difficult for us to find a good place to eat as... More

After a hot morning on the beach, the cool and funky atmosphere of Taco Boy was just what we needed. The beer was icy cold and the tacos were amazing! We only grabbed lunch because we had an appointment to keep, but we definitely would have hung around if we had had the chance! Highly recommend stopping by Taco Boy!

Yum, taco boy has the BEST guac and margs, and their tacos are good too! They have a wide selection and pretty big tables, but you need to get there early or you will have a wait during high season.

The tacos are great but the guacamole is something to get! Full of flavor instead of just mashed avocado. The carne asada is great too!

Yummy food and a great atmosphere. They get busy and backed up but the food is good. Tacos, chips, guacamole, salsa were delicious!

Have eaten here 3 times since December. Never a bad meal. The food is authentic Mexican with the best margaritas . Dine at the bar or with friends on the front porch. Back porch always accepts your pets with fresh drinks for the k-9's as well,

I love Taco Boy! My mom and I tried the red wine sangria, trio appetizer (Guac, queso and salsa), portobello mushroom taco (by far my favorite one) and Mexican corn on the cob. It was all so delicious- I can't wait to bring visitors there!

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
