12 Restaurants In South Carolina To Get Mexican Food That’ll Blow Your Mind
South Carolina is a melting pot of international cuisine. We have a massive treasure trove of talented chefs to thank for making South Carolina such a great place to venture beyond our own kitchen for a meal. How often do you venture out for Mexican food?
Let’s take a look at some great restaurants in the Palmetto State that have some Mexican food that’ll blow you away.
1. Taco Boy - 217 Huger St, Charleston, SC
If you want to know where the locals go, this is it. This location of Taco Boy is a little off the beaten path in downtown Charleston and in a quirky neighborhood. But the food is superb and inventive. The atmosphere is electric and laid back at the same time. We're not sure how that's possible, but it is. Trust us.

2. Fiesta Del Burro Loco - 960 Jason Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC
Wow. Burro Loco's
just might give you the impression that this is THE MOST FUN restaurant in all of Myrtle Beach. But don't let the photos mislead you into thinking FUN is all they have to offer. Online reviews for Fiesta Del Burro Loco absolutely rave about the food, the service and the margaritas!
3. Chuy's - 1034B Woodruff Rd, Greenville, SC
Chuy's Facebook page has a fun graphic that says, "If you've seen one Chuy's - you've seen one Chuy's." We think this is a cute way to say each Chuy's location is as unique as the next. Chuy's in Greenville is as unique as they come. Check out the Elvis Green Chili Fried Chicken (above) or the taco bar in the trunk of the old sedan (above).

11. Taqueria Rocio - 7715 E Main St, Ridgeland, SC
Ridgeland, SC has the distinction of being right off Interstate 95 in South Carolina. Ridgeland has found a way to capitalize on this great opportunity by offering top-notch restaurants and amenities to travelers. Trip Advisor users love Taqueria Rocio. So much so, that some snowbirds plan both legs of their trip to stop in Ridgeland so they can eat here twice while they're in the South. Go Ridgeland!
12. Vallarta Mexican Restaurant & Bar - 944 S Irby St, Florence, SC
Trip Advisor users rank Vallarta as the #1 Mexican Restaurant in Florence. Pair the Nachos Vallarta (above) with a margarita and settle into some authentic Mexican food in Florence.
