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.

First time eating here and was pleasantly surprised at the service and food. Service was prompt. Server was very helpful in going over the menu with us. Everyone in our group got different menu selections and all was very delicious.

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

Can’t say enough good things about Nacho Hippo. We had the fish tacos and love you long time tacos— spot on and just delicious. The tacos were just really really good. The nachos were not overdone and gawdy. Just the right amount of cheese. Plus they have these bucket margarita drinks— just so much fun. Plus you get to keep the buckets to bring home as souvenir. It has myrtle beach written on it too. Wish they had these in NY!

So good!!! We really enjoyed Nacho Hippo. The food was amazing. I highly recommend the Bleep hole nachos. The service was on point. Karen did a wonderful job. The personalized seashells were a big hit with my kids.

The (bleep)-hole nachos were delicious. Ambiance was pleasant. The staff was very nice. I only wish they were a little more Eco-friendly by not using plastic cups and paper silverware sleeves.
