Nacho Hippo


The local legend says the elusive Nacho Hippo (Nachonamus Hippopotamo Maximus) can only be spotted when a true lover of World Class Nachos has given up all hope of finding any. Then and only then, the Hippo may magically appear on a clear moonlit night – trudging through the dunes, ready to help and guide a kindred spirit. If you are one of the lucky ones who sees the Hippo, follow her. She will lead you to Nacho Hippo Cantina Maximo.

Nacho Hippo is a must stop place in Myrtle Beach. One of the best for Mexican cuisine in MB. Atmosphere is great, even with COVID concerns/social distancing, they are super! Definitely going back for the food and service. Affordable dining, but very high quality and knowledgeable staff.

Great food. I told the hostess we needed to catch a flight. She took steps to get us seated. We will be back next trip.

This place is awesome. The nachos are amazing. The servings are huge. This place is a 10. This is one of the best restaurants that I have ever eaten at.

Pretty good food. Just a lot more casual than I was expecting. No enchiladas was a let down. Amanda at the bar gave me good customer service even while dealing with an idiot server.

The place to go if your craving a nacho!! Food was fast and delicious, margarita were excellent. Would have been 5 stars but all the plates they brought out were dirty and had to send back.. will go back anytime I am in area though
