Flights of sipping tequila, salsa trios, and fresh guacamole go a long way toward making Taco Boy a worthy spot to spend an afternoon, whether it’s after a day of sun and sand at Folly Beach or a grueling week of work downtown. The margarita choices are just as numerous as the tacos and make for a fun pairing game. How about the pineapple-infused margarita with the al pastor taco made with pork and roasted pineapple? Or, for a lighter option, you could get the Skinny Casa margarita with a grilled fish taco. You may not feel transported to Mexico here, but after swilling a few michelada-style beers and shooting a couple rounds of tequila, you won’t give a damn whether the salsa approximates your favorite Oaxacan señora’s or not. —Stephanie Barna Dish (Winter 2013)
