In March, West Ashley's Mex 1 Coastal Cantina announced that it would be the new tenant of the former SALT at Station 22 space on Sullivan’s Island, a prominent address at 2205 Middle St. by the beach. The second location of restaurant has been under construction for most of the summer.
Mex 1 opened in West Ashley in 2012 and has served Mexican-inspired fare, including tacos, quesadillas, and the Baja Bowl, which Eater contributor Brian Wilder swears will cure any hangover.
The laid-back cantina hoped to unlock the doors on Sullivan's Island this summer, and it looks like it may make that deadline by a few weeks. While Mex 1 hasn’t announced an official opening date for the new store, it did host soft openings this weekend and sent several photos of the happenings to Eater. Look below for what to expect of the taco-serving newcomer on Middle Street and check back for news of a grand opening.
