I love tacos. Taco Boy did not disappoint! The atmosphere was fun and easily accommodated our large group of 11 people. Everyone enjoyed their margaritas and they had a good variety of tacos. I personally tried the grilled mahi tacos (good), the roasted cauliflower tacos (also good) and the beef brisket tacos (OMG, I need more of these in my... More

Extensive offering of classic culinary creations, infused in a taco format. The fried chicken taco was awesome, and their #1 seller. The kimchi beef taco gets point for creativity, not my favorite. Al pastor was excellent. Fun ambiance, great service.

My mom wanted to try this place she had heard them talk about going here in Army Wives. I just moved to area and like trying new places, so we went. The food was not your typical Mexican food. It was like gourmet Mexican. One thing they had (can't remember the actual name) but it is corn on the cob... More

Super fun place to sit and have dinner, drinks with friends, family and anyone else! Great patio with regular dining seating and casual sofa seating. The food is very good, lots of great taco choices but it's the atmosphere that makes this place!

We went for lunch with the family. There were 6 adults. The atmosphere was fun. The food was good. I like that you can try different tacos without having to get the same kinds. So you don't have to commit a whole entree to something you may not like. I tried 3 different tacos. They were all good. In fact... More

Taco Boy is a very popular eatery with families and young professionals. Good selection of adult beverages to go with a very creative lineup of specialty Tacos. You will not go hungry going here. It's a big restaurant but it does fill up so be ready to wait.

Visiting Charleston for the weekend and we needed a place for lunch. Taco Boy had decent reviews so we decided to try. The salsa trio to start lacked flavor...The quesadilla my wife had was tasteless and burnt and the 3 tacos I tried we're very disappointing. The wait staff was helpful and polite and the overall atmosphere in the restaurant... More

We stopped by this place to meet family. We didnt have any background on it, but figured that tacos are always a safe option. That's pretty much what we got- safe, mediocre, tacos. The fish tasted fresh, probably due to the location close to water, but the tacos werent anything to write home about. On top of that, for 5... More

We stopped in because we had heard the tacos were good and we needed a snack. We ordered 4 tacos and they were all fantastic. A great place to stop for a quick taco and has a good bit of available parking.
