The Market Common

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.

I wish this place didn't let me down every time I go. I keep going back hoping that the food will get better but unfortunately not. I visited the other day and got their bang bang shrimp nachos...first think I noticed when I took a bite of them was how fishy the shrimp were. Not sure what kind of shrimp they use...maybe rock shrimp but the flavor isn't the greatest. If I were them I would spend the extra money for a better quality shrimp. Service is always good though.

Good service, good food. Just wish the menu hadn't shrunk from the time I last visited. Not sure if it's because it was the off-season in Myrtle beach or what. But anyways the fish tacos were great as usual and the barmaid was more than accommodating. I go here every time I visit . 3 to 4 times a year

I dont go out for drinks very often, so on the rare occasion I make a guest appearance, its nice to find a great bartender. Rachel made spectacular beverages. My Appletini was exquisitely delicious. I met some lovely random people and will certainly drink there again in the future. Cheers.

One of our favorite places to eat! Banging shrimp are awesome and nachos are the best. Always great service and staff!
