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.

Was not impressed with the food. Employees did a good job wearing a mask, but they also didn't seem cheerful and happy I still think even behind a mask even if they can't see you smile at least be cheerful to your customers. There was a lot of people there the decorations and the restaurant was awesome to see. people still wasn't social distancing that well definitely were a mask even sitting in there unless you're eating and then as soon as you're done put her right back on.

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

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!

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G doesn’t even begin to describe the food here! I’m from the St. Louis area and this little place reminds me so much of Mission Taco but you guys are 10X better! The food is so reasonably priced and the amount of alcohol you get for what you pay is EXCEPTIONAL. Thank you guys for making my vacation to South Carolina fantastic and the 14 hour drive worth it.
