You've been missing out on some significant culinary diversity if you think tacos are just lettuce, beef, and cheese wrapped up in a tortilla. South Carolina has seen a surge in popularity for taco creations, which have about the same versatility factor as sandwiches. Who doesn't love this? It's easy to eat, it's portable, it's easy to make, it spans a wide range of flavors, and it tastes great! South Carolina's best tacos are served in the taco restaurants below! 

Taco Boy 

The first thing you notice is the comical Taco Boy mascot. The tacos, not the man in the Taco Boy head, make this place stand out. Tacos, nachos, and dips are made from local and regional ingredients when possible. A fun, engaging atmosphere characterizes Taco Boy's taqueria and cantina. Taco Boy's Mexican street food, friendly staff, and unique presentation make it one of the best places to eat in San Antonio. It is possible to visit both locations in Charleston simultaneously - maybe even on the same day! You can find 217 Huger Street in Charleston.

Willy Taco 

Willy Taco built on a pile of fresh ideas, the brainchild of five losers of stale creative ideas and bland flavors. You have plenty to look at and plenty to choose from in their atmosphere, too.
