Great eats at a resonable price

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!!

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.

The food is fresh and the combinations unique. Standard college bar options for drinks. Portion sizes are perfect for someone trying to control their weight and the... More

This place is really CUTE. The atmosphere is really nice and the tacos are pretty decent. It is kind of pricy for the amount of food that you get, but it is worth checking out! $1 mimosas on Sunday!

The food and drinks are just average. Nothing special or unique. The best part of this restaurant is that it has a great location.

Local Taco is a refreshing choice in Lexington. The ingredients are unique and fresh, and the service is generally fast. During warm weather, it is cool to sit there and people watch on Limestone while eating great food and drinking ice cold beer.
