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.

This restaurant's is not your typical restaurant. The food is good, the price is a little bit high. The place is clean and colorful. The drinks are big 32oz...for $15. The staff was cordial and respectful. The dinner took around 20 minutes to be served. This place is good. I recommend this restaurant.

Awesome experience! The Banging Shrimp nachos were crazy good as were all of the tacos we tried. The "buckets" of drinks were really good and everyone of the staff members we came in contact with were super nice and friendly. Will definitely return next time we come to Myrtle Beach!

We had a great lunch. Two orders of Nachos made your own way, a taco salad and a kids meal corn dog with drinks. All together for less than $50 not bad in a tourist area. Pleasant waitress, who was attentive without being over bearing .

Great fun environment for the whole family. Great food selection as well as drink choices. Service was fast and food was as expected and tasty. It's close to all the shops so after dinner, talk a walk around all the little shops in the square.

We were in the area just trying to spend a nice relaxing day and we could not figure out what we wanted to eat. We decided the Nasho Hippo for no other reason then it had a fun name and our daughter kept saying hippo. The atmosphere was fun and welcoming. Our server did a great job. And I was really impressed with the food. I would recommend this to any of you looking for a good place to eat.
