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.

If you are looking for a great taco and exceptional homemade tortillas, go here. Do not pass go, do not collect $200....go straight to Sure Fire Tacos! If you are traveling through Columbia, get off the Interstate and eat here. DO NOT MISS THIS ONE!...More

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.
