We eat at Taco Boy every several months for years. Last night was very disappointing. The restaurant was busy. Always a good sign. However, the waitress was not happy to get a table for a meal and not drinkers. We were punished. We ordered a tea, glass of wine (Less than 2 ounces.) and 2 beers. Although we have always... More

Hi there, hate to hear that you were disappointed with your visit the other night. I want you to know that every guest that walks through our doors is important, whether they are there to only eat or to only drink. I am interested, though, why you feel that your server was punishing you, and we will be able to... More

I had visited Taco Boy on numerous occasion prior to this visit. My past experiences had earned my repeat business. On July 29 however, my credit card was fraudulently charged a higher tip than I had specified. I make it a habit to specify tips that round the total to either a 'X.00' or 'X.50' value. In this case, I... More

Keith, we absolutely do not take something like this lightly, but also apologize for dropping the ball in responding to you. We are more than happy to refund the $1.33 in addition to the full amount of your bill; Paul, the general manager, will take care of it personally. Please call the restaurant to speak to him. More

We had some friends come down from Asheville NC who had heard great things about this place, so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. It is in a part of Charleston that is being revitalized, so when you are driving there, dont be discouraged. The building and decor are very eclectic and they have both... More

I have known about this place for sometime but just never taken the opportunity until last week when I spent the evening watching sports drinking Margies and eating tacos. I ate out on the back patio near one of the fire pits and it was just a very chill way to spend the evening - kind of reminded me of... More

Great Mexican food and tacos. The atmosphere is very unique, and they have an awesome back patio. I would suggest trying the Mexican Street corn and getting the appetizer trio!

A large group dined here and everyone was happy. Their taco choices were amazing, so many to choose from, everyone boasted about their tacos!! Drinks were good, beer was good and cold. Great service for a large group. The chips and cheese were good appetizers!! Worth visiting. Outside and inside seating available, we sat inside at a large table.

Seems to be a popular spot for mixed drinks, although many can attest to the lack of alcohol in them. Their food is hit or miss, and served in small portions. They do have a great outdoor courtyard that can take large groups.

Our cocktails contain 1.5oz of liquor, which is the usual amount for a properly mixed drink. You are always welcome to order a double if you aren't satisfied! If ever you're not happy with your meal, please do let a manager know so we can address any issues. We pride ourselves on hospitable service and consistently delicious food, so feedback... More

Quite a selection of tacos. I had a bratwurst taco and a fish taco. I know it sounds odd, but the bratwurst taco was pretty darn good and certainly unusual. The fish taco was nothing exceptional - - it was okay. Good mexican beers too!

We sat outside and enjoyed the trio appetizer, as well as a variety of tacos. The carnitas on flour tortilla was my favorite; however, the grilled chicken was also very good. You have your choice of flour, corn,or lettuce wraps. The prices are reasonable and the quality is very good. Nice service and excellent beer and liquor selection.
