Walking distance from U.K. I loved that you could order tacos individually so you could taste different ones - shrimp taco was great. Good food for the price. Tacos aren't real big, but very tasty. Guacamole was delicious! Will definitely go back!

Our 2nd visit to this cool taco joint did not disappoint. Super yUmMy, very fresh and even better than I remembered from our first visit last year. Queso, guacamole and salsa were very good, excellent pitcher of margaritas, delicious enchiladas and of course fabulous tacos. Haven't been? What are you waiting for?

Every time I visit Lexington, KY to see my brother, we make it a priority to come here. Now, I live in Houston, TX, so I pride myself on being well-versed in the art of the taco. Local Taco is fantastic! They have unique and flavorful tacos. If you are in Lexington, KY, I would highly recommend this gem, which... More

As the name implies, a large part (if not all) of the food served at Local Taco is drawn from local sources. The Local Taco does not displease. Located on the northern edge of UK campus, the best way to reach this location is by traveling north on N Limestone from the center of campus towards downtown. Parking out front... More

I LOVE Local Taco! Everything is always extremely fresh & delicious. Nice atmosphere. Portions a bit small & prices a bit high, but doesn't keep me away. Whenever I'm in Lexington this is a must for lunch.

Heard about this place and stopped in for a bite to eat. Portion size was very small compared to what was described. Just saw a TV show that reviewed this place and they showed large portions, but my the case when you go there. The food tasted good, but the portions were just too small.

After wandering the Farmer's Market on one of the first nice spring days, we stopped in for some brunch. I had one fish taco and one shrimp taco, both excellent, but the shrimp was the star. My side was something they called Mexican Tater Tots, and they were delicious. My husband had two different breakfast tacos, and loved them both.... More

Great atmosphere. Food was good. The tacos could be bigger. I'd recommend the steak taco and the local BBQ taco. Mexican rice wasn't anything special. Will I go back? Yeah probably.

My wife and I were looking for a great place for tacos. This place was an excellent find and recommended to us from a couple locals. Really enjoyed the steak taco, fish taco, and the southern fried chicken taco.
