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.

Love the Nacho Hippo. Ever since my first visit about 3 years ago in Myrtle Beach, it's been a dinner staple for at least one meal (and usually more) during all my visits. The menu has great selections. Obviously, the nachos are all good. The bar has nice selections. The beer is a little pricey in my opinion, just based on the selection available and what I see at other places. But that's nothing to stop me from visiting or to knock the review. Great for dine in or for take out.

My husband and I got sharable nachos. They were great as well as the service. The price of the nachos and 2 drinks was a total of $22+ with tax! Really good value. We went to the one at Market Commons.

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

I give two stars because of the food was so good.. Visited this location for the first time last night. Myself and four others. Very bad experience. The slowest service I have received in years. And the two Margarita pitchers were overfilled with ice and had no alcohol detectable. Never expected to be skimped at market common. We even took them to the bar and the bartender double checked from the big dispenser and she said it was fine. I would like to make a complaint but the contact us link on the nacho hippo website does not go anywhere. Also there was water all over the floor in both bathrooms and our handicapped uncle almost slipped and fell and notified the staff and they did not take it seriously at all. The staff said it must have been cleaned with a chemical... I started working in the restaurant industry when I was 15 I know how it is.

Food was unbelievable, prices were very fair and service was fast and excellent. Mexican style cuisine with a modern twist would be the best way to describe the experience. 5 stars from me!
