Fantastic! - Edit

One of the few veg-friendly restaurants in Charleston that has a completely separate vegan menu with tons of options. I had the vegan jerk taco and the freakin' vegan taco, both of which were delicious, and at a great price point too. Two tacos plus a side ( I recommend the fried plantains, they're dowsed in agave and delicious) is $10 and a ton of food. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Pros: Lots of options, Great food, Friendly staff

Great tasty food - Edit

Really good service and tasty vegan food. I was glad other reviews had warned that everything may not be vegan but to be fair they do say on the menu that the chips etc are cooked in the same oil as meat. They were happy to give us the gluten free chips instead for the guacamole which are vegan. Guacamole was excellent. Avocado tortilla delicious. Vegan soup also tasty. Very good beers too. Overall great place and good service. My vegetarian friend also liked the black bean tacos.

Pros: service, food, craft beers

Cons: check on what is properly vegan

Good veggie option! - Edit

Incredible service, vegan food options ok. Be careful as some of the "vegan" options are prepared in the same oil as the meat options (aka tortillas), so if you are very strict be careful. The tortilla soup is a win as is the guacamole. Customer service is really good, great outdoor or indoor seating and really relaxed atmosphere.

Beware 'Vegan' menu - Edit

I'm a vegetarian mother raising 3-year-old twin daughters vegetarian. In fact they have never eaten meat in their lives, or so I thought. My family and I moved to Sullivan’s Island about 1 year ago and I was delighted a local restaurant had a ‘vegan’ menu! Well, while dining at Taco Mamacita last Tuesday, May 28, 2013 I learned from the manager that the 'Vegan' rice contains exactly the same ingredients as the 'standard' menu rice - NO difference, both are made with and contain chicken stock, which by definition makes this not only NOT vegetarian, but NOT VEGAN! I am not only furious, but dismayed this manager was so casual and seemingly indifferent to this issue, which is not only ethically and morally repugnant, but may in fact be illegal in South Carolina

If Taco Mamacita does not want to serve two separate menus, they should not falsely purport to do so, it is wilful public harm, questionable moral and ethical business practices, not to mention extremely bad karma.

Loved It - Edit

I requested the vegan menu when I walked in, which I was pleased to find had a good number of options on it. I had a couple of tacos (I honestly don't remember which flavors), but the highlight of my dinner was the vegan tortilla soup. All the ingredients are fresh and for the soup, they were mixed together right at the table. I was very glad I went there

Pros: Vegan Menu, Friendly Service, Tortilla Soup!

Make sure you ask for the vegan menu - Edit

heard this place was very vegan friendly so we checked it out. Sullivan's Island is great! Ordered the vegetarian jerk tacos assuming vegan from what we heard of this place but they definitely were not. Came to realize they have a separate all-vegan menu! Make sure you ask for the vegan menu

Pros: margs

Super Yummy - Edit

Taco Mamacita's is a great restaurant with a fun beach vibe right in the center of Sullivan's Island. They have a separate vegan menu, yummy mango chili and great pomegranate margarita's!
