The Best Mexican Cuisine in the Region
As you can gather, Mexican food is the name of the game at Mex 1 Coastal Cantina. Starters like queso, guacamole made fresh in-house daily, calamari, and Nachos Mamas—topped with seasoned black beans, jalapenos, fresh guacamole, pico de gallo, queso, and sour cream—get your tastebuds ready for the flavors to come. The salads are refreshing yet filling, and the quesadillas present the best of surf and turf, with options like Tijuana steak, cilantro lime chicken, and Baja spiced Santos shrimp. Mex 1 Charleston has something for everybody! Ordering a taco is no simple task at Mex 1 Coastal Cantina because the options are nearly endless. Carnitas, buffalo shrimp, grilled mahi, carne asada, and even barbeque chicken are all options, in addition to the fish and shrimp available with other quesadillas and tortas.

Choose from lightly fried shrimp, beer-battered mahi mahi, mushrooms, carnitas, or even the Cali Burger—a torta with an angus beef patty and classic burger toppings, finished off with guacamole. Like the salads, the Baja Bowls at Mex 1 Coastal Cantina also present a healthier, yet no less hearty option. Baja Bowls are layered with brown rice, seasoned black beans, pico de gallo, jack cheese, guacamole, queso fresco, and tortilla strips before being topped with green onions, cilantro, and fresh lime.
