I am going to get to it straight away: these are, by far, the best tacos I have ever wrapped my lips around. E-vah.
Never did I imagine in my wildest dreams that the best taco ever could be had in little, touristy Folly Beach. But indeed, that’s where the best tacos reside. At Taco Boy. Our first meal in Folly Beach was so good, I am certain it cannot be topped. Before departing the restaurant, I was already making plans to return before the end of our week. The kids said they were going to scream if I said “My food was SO good” one more time.

As a lover of Mexican food, I have patronized nearly every Mexican joint in the greater Kanawha Valley area. Casa Garcia could not escape my chimichanga radar, effective within a 30-mile radius of my current location at any given time. In fact, one reason I am considering upgrading to an iPhone is so I can locate Mexican and Indian eateries when in unfamiliar territory.
Casa Garcia is located in Riverwalk Plaza in a space that used to be a Chinese place. On my first visit to Casa Garcia I noticed the décor had a lot of Asian flavor…but since then, the restaurant has transformed into a bright and cheery setting where you expect to receive a taco, not an eggroll.

at 12:15, we were the only customers inside...read our review to find out why
I was pleasantly surprised when I returned from my maternity leave and there was a deck on the front of the Tricky Fish. If anyone remembers the steps that were on the front, they were a death trap (especially for the oddly clumsy, like me)! The concrete slab steps towered in the front of the building (at least 5 or 6 feet tall) with no railing. Of course, I have a trained eye for such dangerous settings as I am married to an attorney; but I am sure that everyone who dined there spotted it. In fact, I am surprised that in the time that it took them to build the deck, that someone did not fall off, sue the Tricky Fish and put them out of business!
Of course, such actions were off limits for a pregnant lady who is responsible for the well being of an unborn child. But for other folks that were not in my situation, it seems like it would have been fair game. I’m just saying, most people in WV are always looking for some easy money and I’m surprised that no one tried to make a few bucks at the detriment of the Tricky Fish. Luckily for the Tricky , it does not appear that anyone took advantage of this dangerous situation and they could receive another review from Fork You.
I was sure that this was going to be a better experience than the last. Let’s face it, our first visit was just after they opened and they were still ironing out all the wrinkles. It’s got to be better, right? Well, bloggers, read on…
