Nacho Hippo is an open air cantina that provides customers with a festive experience. A concept that is only 6 years old, it is quickly becoming a favorite amongst tourists and locals alike! Everyday is a fiesta with us – from our vibrant decor and friendly wait staff to the live music and a energetic buzz that fills the room. Nacho Hippo offers a family-friendly environment, as well as the perfect spot to gather with friends for a few margaritas and to play some cornhole. During the summer months, we have live music jamming every night and during the off season we feature a Hiptastic Happy Hour and a special football tailgate menu, Thursdays through Sundays. Our North Myrtle Beach location even has the NFL Sunday Ticket which means you won’t miss any of the football action!
Our food is unique and in a category all of it’s own – not quite Mexican and not exactly Tex-Mex. At Nacho Hippo we pride ourselves on using only the freshest produce and top quality meats that are never frozen and seasoned to perfection. Our dishes are handmade, prepared in the restaurant, and consist of components that are cooked fresh daily. Even our delicious tortilla chips are homemade and seasoned to perfection in house. We offer vegetarian and vegan options in tacos and modify any menu item to accommodate those with a specific diet. We love creating new recipes and being innovative in the kitchen. Nacho Hippo is constantly offering new menu items as well as limited time featured menus to test out new dishes. Our menu reflects our innovativeness and is filled with one of a kind items. For example we offer taco options like the Mrs. Daisy, which has fried green tomatoes and pimento cheese or the Kamikaze, which contains ahi tuna and a seaweed salad.
Besides fun, another thing we don’t skimp on at Nacho Hippo are portions. Our quesadillas are stuffed to the brim with protein and heaps of cheese and veggies and our nachos are piled sky high with meat, cheese and veggies. We even offer a Mexicali Margarita that’s served in an oversized margarita glass with a Coronita in it as well as a Hip Bucket – a sand bucket filled with a refreshing, fruity cocktail. Our portions are generous and perfect for sharing!
Nacho Hippo has a large selection of tequila for every preference and taste. We hire only the most experienced, knowledgeable and of course friendliest bartenders to mix up amazing cocktails and make sure your bar experience is the best in town. We may be known for having the best margaritas in Myrtle Beach, but we also have a wide variety of other drinks. Our Hip bartenders love creating and concocting new drink recipes.
Nacho Hippo not only piles on the toppings, but we pile on the love on our community as well. We participate in the Monday After the Masters Golf Tournament, cater to events at schools, businesses and private parties, and are active Booster Club sponsors for area high schools. Each school year we pass out Student Excellence Awards which can be redeemed for a free kids meal to local schools that recognize those students who have good grades, great attendance or any other student accolades. In past years we’ve also supported St Andrews Catholic School by our involvement in their annual Taste of the Town fundraiser event.
We’re not only proud to serve our community but to have been recognized in the community as well. Nacho Hippo has won the “Best of the Beach” Margaritas and “Best of the Beach” Nachos for two years in a row. Grand Strand Magazine also named it “Best Mexican Restaurant”.
If there’s one thing we love to do at Nacho Hippo, it’s a party! Have a fiesta you’re planning? Let us help you celebrate! We have a whole extension at our Nacho Hippo Market Common location available during the off season for hosting private parties. Not only do we cater, but it even has its own bar so your guests won’t have to walk far to refill that margarita.
Whether you stop in for Hiptastic Happy Hour with your friends or bring the whole family for some tasty tacos, be sure to give one of our two Myrtle Beach locations a try. We have a spot in North Myrtle Beach and a restaurant at The Market Common. Come by and we’ll have a fresh batch of “Best of the Beach” Nachos waiting for you!
