Mex 1 Coastal Cantina Image

Hours: L, D

Price: $$

Mex 1 Coastal Cantina was a welcome addition to the West Ashley dining scene and fits right in on Sullivan’s Island. The original restaurant may not be near the water, but it’s got a huge surfer vibe (i.e. the kitchen is separated from the bar by a wall constructed of surfboards). Jack’s Cosmic Dog owner Jack Hurley’s culinary trip South of the border won’t leave diners disappointed. The Baja-style eats beckon the hungry, and the impressive tequila list opens the door to a whole slew of fun. An array of tacos, quesadillas, and tortas make up the entrees, with the addition of tasty bites like guacamole and Mexican street corn. We’re partial to the Baja fish tacos and carnitas torta, but the Baja bowls are becoming a local favorite. —Eric Doksa (Dish, Summer 2019)
