Hours: Lunch & Dinner
This low-key Mexican spot out on Sullivan’s Island offers a selection of 14 made-from-scratch tacos with creative fillings like jerk chicken, barbecue pork, gyro meat, and sloppy joe beef, and there’s a selection of enchiladas, soups, and salads. The two real stars of the show are the Taco Royale and the Peruvian chicken. The first uses mashed black beans to cement a hard corn shell inside a flour tortilla, then fills it with roasted chicken, chorizo, and chipotle cream. The latter is half a bird rubbed with lime and spices and slow-roasted till the meat is tender and the skin superbly crispy. With either you get your choice of sides, and you are well advised to get the butter-and-cheese-doused street corn. To wash it down, the bar offers good margaritas, a respectable lineup of crafts beers on tap, and an impressive tequila selection. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2015)
