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.

Assuming you may be looking a for a hot brown in KY this place is AMAZING!!! Fresh margaritas and amazing tacos. Even if your driving through you must stop and grab a few tacos. I must warn you though, it gets very busy!

The menu is somewhat simple but the tacos are awesome--especially the fish and fried chickens versions. Their grilled corn on the cobb is such a nice tread. Love everything about this place including the outdoor seating. Most excellent!

Great local restaurant as the name syggests. Inexpensive especially with the weekend brunch specials for both food and drinks. Fun, lively atmosphere. A must visit for the great UK scene.

Simple and casual with orders placed at the counter, but quality and value would be hard to beat elsewhere. Will definitely be back.

We found this place on a whim. Indoor and outdoor tables. Very casual, but cool place. The tacos are about $2.75/taco with a bunch of variety. Also have combo specials. You order at the counter. They bring it to you. I tried the Southern Fried Chicken, Fish, and Steak tacos. They weren't bad, but neither were they extremely memorable. Nice... More

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