Long wait to be seated, noisy inside. 2 places to sit outside (front porch and back patio) and plenty of seating inside, and full bar. Several unusual choices of food, and a few vegetarian items listed on the menu. The salsa is a good choice. The tacos are small for about $4 each but almost gourmet. Staff is mostly friendly. I did get squirted on the back of my arm when the table beside us was being cleaned, that was kind of gross. It is a clean place. Good food, fun place to eat.

Yummy margaritas can't make an entire experience...can they? Well, maybe sometimes, but the food at Taco Boy just doesn't cut it for this Mexican loving lady. Fun atmosphere and delicious drinks, but the food definitely leaves something to be desired. I'm sure I'll be back to this spot regardless!

After a morning on the beach, Taco Boy lunch was fully satisfying. As carb-less eaters Mexican food is always easy to modify and still get the full effect of the meal. Taco Boy has a good deal of variety, so my companions and I just made it a big hodge podge of food. Queso, Guac, tacos.. nothing to complain about
A wide and wonderful range of tequila to choose from also. Bonus.

I suggest you visit the Taco Boy early. The Saturday wait was an hour, and Tuesday was 30 minutes. I have eaten there several times, and the food is good but not spectacular. I simply like the whole funky, freaky, and upbeat atmosphere. If you sit outside, you have a great view of Folly's unending parade of vacationers, tourists, teenagers, surfers, locals, bikers, police, drunks, parents, etc. The art and decor are splendid.
On our last visit, we had an odd waitress who would not make eye contact, but we still had a good time at this hip place.
