Awesome tacos and great value

Visited Local Taco to get a fish taco fix and was not disappointed. The menu is pretty simple but covers all bases. I went for the offer of four tacos for $11, which to me is great value for money. I had the steak, fish, SFC and local bbq which were all awesome. The food was served quickly by... read more

Lunch included varieties of tacos (beef,chicken,shrimp and fish) uniquely prepared, grits and fries. Very tastey. "Chill" background music. Alcohol available. Limited parking so had leisurely walk from several blocks away...one handicap space noted in parking lot. Definitely recommend.

Great spot to hang out but that's about it. The food lacks flavor, appearance, and quality ingredients for its. Cheap and fast, comparable to the McDonalds down the street. Management is short tempered, unfriendly, incompetent. I went three times each time was more disappointed than the last. Eat here only for the bar-like atmosphere and lower your expectations for the... More

Have recently moved from the foodie capital Austin, Tx, to this town with many chain restaurants it was a pleasant surprise to find Local Taco which is pretty close to tex-mex! Portion size is small but the food is very tasty, would return again...

We visited this restaurant while on a college visit with my daughter at the University of Kentucky. The restaurant is within walking distance of the campus. The food was great, the outdoor seating was lovely and the menu was reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend to others!!

this is the ultimate sunday morning brunch destination!!!!! mimosa's $1.00 !!!!!!! Bloody Mary's $3.00 !!!!! great combination of breakfast taco's, and not the ordinary "taco" taco's, this place is not just for the college kids. They source from local growers, and are Kentucky Proud! the food is very good, and contrary to "daniel" waaaaay above average.... now, don't go there... More

If I could choose the number of stars it would be 3.5. The place is not average but it is not very good. The service we got was very good, servers were helpful at the time of getting a table, but this place gets crowded so there might be a wait for a table. The food it self was reasonably... More

We took an out of town friend here for lunch and we were all pleased! We had an order of the guacamole/ chips, and a variety of tacos. Our favorites included; steak, fish, shrimp, and buffalo chicken.

Place is nicely located in a busy student area .Food is very good ,cheap and restaurant is neat and clean,problem is the servers are not really professionals and that normally is super busy so you have to wait a lot to get a drink,put your order or get it. dONT GO ON WEEKENDS.
