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.

One of my favorite restaurants in the area. Delicious food! The nachos are huge and so good. Tacos are great and they have a variety of options. Good appetizers if you just want a snack and some drinks. Great atmosphere, friendly staff

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.

Food was really good. Loved the selection of tacos. Food was prepared quickly. Only issue was that they messed up one of the entrees I ordered. Will definitely stop by when visiting Myrtle Beach.

Very nice place.... great service! Only disappointment was that I ordered the steak and chicken nachos and they barely put any queso cheese on it, very dry and the “steak” was not real steak, they use phillysteak.... The sweet tea was not very “sweet”
