Where to Get the Best Tacos in Myrtle Beach

By Julia Diem

There is no denying that Myrtle Beach has some of the best food places on the East Coast. From fine dining and buffets to delicious brunch options, we have a little bit of everything. But sometimes those great foods taste even better with a splash of Mexican seasoning and wrapped in a taco shell.

After all, who doesn’t love a taco and a side of guac?

If your mouth is watering just like mine is simply thinking about a plate of tacos, we’ve got you covered here. These are the best tacos in Myrtle Beach that’ll keep you and your taste buds happy.


Nacho Hippo

  • Address: 1160 Farrow Pkwy, Myrtle Beach
  • Price Point: $$
  • Must-Try Taco: Baja Grilled Fish Taco or Gringo Taco

Offering a variety of specialty tacos, Nacho Hippo in Market Common has a taco for everyone. Here you can enjoy spins on classic tacos that you won’t see on menus anywhere else.

If not everyone in your group is as excited as you are about getting your fill of tacos, Nacho Hippo is well-known for their nachos (as their name insists) so you won’t go wrong with a heaping plate of chips and toppings.

The portion sizes are generous here so it’s best to come hungry but do know that they don’t take reservations so if you come for dinner with a large group, you might have to wait for a table. They do offer inside and outdoor seating though so on a nice evening, the wait moves quickly.

El Cerro Grande

  • Address: 108 S Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach
  • Price Point: $
  • Must-Try Taco: Queso Birria Taco

This authentic Mexican restaurant offers guests some of the best traditional Mexican food on the Grand Strand. Don’t let the simplicity of these traditional tacos turn you away, El Cerro Grande’s tacos are major contenders in the battle of Myrtle Beach’s best taco.

For starters don’t overlook their chips and salsa. For extra hungry diners, you’ll love their cheese dip and guacamole.

This location recently reopened after a year-long remodel and the changes are fantastic. It’s clean, inviting, and modern. They also have another 7 locations in the area, including one in North Myrtle Beach.

Moe Moon’s

  • Address: 990 Boardwalk, Myrtle Beach
  • Price Point: $$
  • Must-Try Taco: Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos

Located right on the water, Moe Moon’s isn’t your typical taco spot but trust us, they’ve got an incredible list of “Tourista Tacos” that we love. Plus, when you dine here you get an extra fun atmosphere to match the great food.

This family-friendly beach restaurant offers guests a great view of the ocean from their outdoor patio along the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. Grab a bite while walking the Boardwalk or take a taco break from the beach at Moe Moon’s.

While they do serve margaritas, Moe Moon’s is famous for their cocktails served in fishbowls and pineapples. We recommend you try one of those along with your meal for a true experience.

Don’t forget, VMB discount card holders will receive a discount on all food at Moe Moon’s so be sure to bring it along when you eat here.

Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant

  • Address: 740 Coastal Grand Cir, Myrtle Beach
  • Price Point: $$
  • Must-Try Taco: Fajita Tacos

If you’re looking for delicious Tex-Mex cuisine and a romantic Mexican atmosphere, Abuelo’s provides that and more to their guests. With decorative murals covering the walls, white columns, arches, and statues, Abuelo’s luxurious Mexican environment is number one at the beach.

If you’re looking for authentic Mexican drinks, the margaritas and other tequila cocktails won’t disappoint. Keep in mind that if you choose to dine here for lunch, they have a few really great lunch specials but the most popular is the Enchilada & Taco.

Located at Coastal Grand Mall, you can do some shopping in Myrtle Beach before or after your meal to make it a full day out.

Como en Casa Restaurant & Pizzaria

  • Address: 701 S Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach
  • Price Point: $
  • Must-Try Taco: Taco Birria with Broth

Como en Casa means “like at home” and that’s exactly what you’ll get when you eat here. The tacos and rest of the menu are handmade to order, just like you would get if you ate if you were invited to the home of an abuela that really knew how to cook.

You won’t feel as though you’re in South Carolina anymore when eating here. This no frills restaurant focuses on what really matters: the food. Their fresh corn tortillas and authentic ingredients makes this restaurant a local favorite year after year.

Tu Taco

  • Address: 1343 N Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach
  • Price Point: $$
  • Must-Try Taco: Chicken Tacos

Tu Taco is a fast-food joint but don’t let that fool you - they still serve some of the best tacos in Myrtle Beach. Here they focus on Mexican-style street food so, if you’ve ever been to Mexico you know that means the tacos will be packed with flavor yet minimal ingredients.

Note that Tu Taco is closed on Mondays so plan for your own Taco Tuesday here.

For those driving into town, Tu Taco recently opened a new location near Myrtle Beach in Conway.

La Poblanita Restaurant

  • Address: 311 Hwy 15, Myrtle Beach
  • Price Point: $
  • Must-Try Taco: Carne Asada Taco

This cozy restaurant is great for tacos but also burritos, quesadillas, and other Mexican classics. While it might look unassuming from the outside, the food never disappoints.

The portions at La Polanita tend to be generous with beans and rice served alongside the tacos. You'll get a great bang for your buck here.

Banditos Cantina

  • Address: 1410 N Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach
  • Price Point: $$
  • Must-Try Taco: Bandito Chicken Taco

Want to enjoy your taco with an oceanfront view? Banditos is a great option! Plus, with the largest selection of tequila in all of Myrtle Beach, you’re in for a good drink alongside your meal.

You’re just steps away from the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade here so we recommend planning your meal here either before or after you’ve explored all the fun attractions this part of town offers.

If you’re gluten-free, fear not, you can order your tacos on their corn tortillas. While we’re fans of their namesake taco, they have plenty of taco fillings to choose from with carnitas and short rib as other fan favorites.

Taqueria Las Comadres Express

  • Address: 6409 Dick Pond Rd, Myrtle Beach
  • Price Point: $
  • Must-Try Taco: Steak Tacos

Craving authentic Mexican cuisine? Try Las Comadres! This hidden gem isn’t really for Tex-Mex like others on this list but real, authentic Mexican.

They offer a great combo deal of 3 tacos, giving you the perfect chance to mix and match. While here we recommend that you test your limits and try menu items that you can’t find in other spots.

Taco Mundo Kitchen y Cantina

  • Address: Barefoot Landing, 4732 Hwy 17 S, North Myrtle Beach
  • Price Point: $$
  • Must-Try Taco: Kimchi Beef Taco

The name says it all, Taco Mundo, meaning Taco World, focuses fully on offering up some of the best tacos on the Grand Strand. Located in Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach, it’s worth the short drive to enjoy the tacos and sitting along the Intracoastal Waterway.

While Taco Mundo offers a few classics, they really shine in unique pairings and tacos you won’t find on any other menu. If you’re dining with a group that all has a hankering for tacos, try their “Tacos for the Table” offer.

Although there are plenty of great restaurants in Barefoot Landing, Taco Mundo is one of the best.
