The tacos were bland. The margaritas were good! May give it another try and opt for something other than tacos.

Drinks were great and so were the appetizers. The tacos lacked much flavor. We had the Korean, Beef and Pork BBQ tacos. None of the meats were even warm and mostly very dry. The sides - turnip greens, potatoes, corn and beans were good.

AI local told me that we were missing something by not trying LT. He was right. After about a dozen visits to Lexington without visiting the LT, we feel like we have been missing out! This will now be one of our regular stops on our next visit. Don't be turned off by the name if you don't like Mexican... More

The food is great. Particularaly the Korean BBQ taco. Additionally, you are right in the middle of one of the more interesting areas of Lexington...and have a front row seat if you desire.

We enjoyed a dinner with friends at this restaurant near the University of Kentucky campus. I had tasty vegetarian tacos that featured crispy friend onions. Others ate fish or chicken tacos. The seasoning was a bit mild but otherwise the tacos, chips, salsa and guacamole were tasty. On good weather days, outside seating is available. If children are in your... More

Quick, solo bite to eat near the U of K. Tacos are small, but awesome tasting....nothing but very fresh ingredients in interesting combinations. Decent craft beer selection on tap. Good service.

The pulled pork tacos were muy buena! Loved that you order at the register, pay, get your own drinks, then take a seat. The food was delivered to our table of 10 pronto! The autosphere is casual, & very eclectic. Love, love, love Local Taco! Will return the next time we are in Lexington.

Being from Southern California, we sometimes miss great mexican food in the Southeast, but Local Taco was yummy. We tried the Korean beef taco, pulled pork taco, cheese enchilada, and grilled corn - which was really great! We also sampled the margaritas and delicious crispy chips and salsa. A great find in Lexington.

Food was good. Nice atmosphere. Unique menu with 10 or so different types of tacos, enchiladas and quesadilla's. Unusual like buffalo chicken taco, beef brisket, steak, southern fried chicken, etc. We tried 5 between 2 of us and all were good as was the queso dip. Order at a counter, get a number and they bring it out to you.... More

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!
