Re: “Bàsico

Tried out this place and enjoyed it. I indulged in the large tequila selection and the enchiladas were great. I highly recommend the chorizo paired with a moscow mule to bring out the true flavor. It's a refreshing change of pace from the refried scene.

Re: “Bàsico

This is one of my new favorite spots! Spicy grapefruit maragaritas and the Grilled Vegetable Salad are my favs...

Re: “Bàsico

Great Food. The interior, decor, and style is beautifully coordinated.

Someone paid a lot of attention to detail. Everything about this place is hand picked and looks wonderful together.

The food is delicious, and is perfectly paired with design of this hidden gem.

Re: “La Malquerida

My favorite taco truck, hands down. Cheap and extremely filling, as well as plenty of choices.

Re: “Cha Cha's Mexican Grill

finally a replacement for Buffalo South, the place has a great elevated bar, Happy Hour is superb.... we keep going back you should too, Tecate & salsa, what ever you order on the menu is nutrition with a buzz, what more can you ask from a sports bar ?

Re: “MEX 1

I've been four times now and I love the place. The food is fantastic and great beer selection. They have good service and nice atmosphere. I'm really impressed with the quality of the food. Between the people I've been with and myself we've tried a decent sampling of the full menu and I haven't been disappointed with anything.

Re: “Pollo Loko Peruvian

Good every time we go. We live in Mount Pleasant and don't get down Dorchester that much, but we sometimes make the special trip.

While we like several menu items, I have to say my favorite is the tongue sandwich. Yes I know! "Tongue?!?" That's the typical American response anytime I suggest this menu item. I'm a "normal" American redneck and I can't get enough of the tongue sandwich at this place! Seriously!

Be adventurous and step outside your comfort zone every now and then.

Re: “MEX 1

Mexican restaurants come in a variety of styles and flavors and this is a much needed addition to the Charleston food scene. This is Baja Mexican style which I have spent a fair amount of time sampling in the San Diego and Baja Peninsula of Mexico. Charleston finally has a fish taco done right with stand out guacamole and filling salads as well as lots of other options as well. I have not tried everything yet but what i have had is really very good and value priced. Great place to bring kids and did I mention that the beer selection is solid as well. This is the type of place my family and I will eat at often. Please open one in MT P area.

Re: “Zia Taqueria

Baja fish tacos, $2.50 on a Monday night. Friendly and attentive service. It's like a fast food place where you order and pay at the counter, except the food is so *so* much better! If you don't like fresh ingredients (like cilantro) go to Taco Bell.

Re: “Zia Taqueria

The food is freaking amazing. This place destroys, it absolutely blows away in everyway Tacoboy. The margarita mix at Zias is made from scratch with real citrus fruit. Also unlike Tacoboy, they have pitchers. The tacos are way bigger and taste a 1000 times better. This is my go to place for Sunday frozen screwdrivers. Try the tacos with the El Yucateco hot sauce at the silverware station. Deathly hot hot sauce.

Re: “Pollo Loko Peruvian

Just order a 1/4 chicken plate and you will be happy... especially if you add an order of plantains. So delicious, so filling. Sure, the restaurant decor is nothing to write home about, but nothing in that area of N. Charleston is all that nice. The people that run Pollo Tropical are super friendly with good service though. If you want good food, check this place out!

Re: “Juanita Greenberg's Nacho Royale

Juanita Greenbergs is a jewel on King St. Its got a sign out front that invites a dog friendly atmosphere. The staff enures that the restaurant is kept spotless and sanitary, and food is delivered promptly to your table in virtually no time. Its a place where you can let your kids run around out back and play hide and seek, while you enjoy your favorite margarita in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. The patio area smells of Carolina Jasmine, as it is growing on the walls around the outdoor seating. I would recommend that anyone and everyone come enjoy this place. Also every Wednesday night one of the best female vocalists in town performs free to anyone who will listen, So come out and see Jordan Igoe and Friends. It will change your life. If you dont like the atmosphere clearly stated on the chalkboard out front, then go to McDonald's...lookin at you, Beth.

Re: “El Dorado

I cannot believe El Dorado has only one review.
I love El Dorado for may reasons...but the food is first.
Family run. Great service. Consistent food. Generous proportions. Moderate pricing.
I have been ordering the same few items for 15 yrs. Always good...never had a 'bad' meal or lousy service. EVER. I grew up eating Mexican, both in California & Arizona before moving here. It is like coming home.
Pretty standard fare...Americanized Mexican...nothing fancy. Try the Pollo Jalisco. Crumbled chorizo over a chicken breast and covered in molten Mexican cheeses.
Now my 11 year old son is hooked on their chicken tacos with crunchy shells.
Give it a try.

Re: “Raul's Taqueria & Mexican Grill

Had the carne en su jugo and a wet burrito. Loved them. Service was enthusiastic and attentive. Got the check and had to pick my jaw up off the table. 2 entrees, a soda, margarita, and a kids meal for 25 bucks (tax included). The food was super, fresh and flavored so well. The price point is what takes this place from 4 to 5 stars on my scale. I will be back.
