Lunch with girls

Wonderful place to grab a quick table service lunch with the girlfriends in Brentwood. Try the lobster taco if you are there when it is the special and the Mexican tater tots as your side. Only down side is you have to pay for your chips and salsa.

Offer a lot of different tacos and not your typical Mexican Restaurant. Thought the food was over priced for the portions served. 3 small tacos and a side for $12.00. Mine hardly had enough filling to taste. The cheese dip and chips were really good. If I went back it would be for drinks and appetizers. Service was good.

Again, another "odd" Mexican experience. A Mexican restaurant that doesn't serve nachos? They have chips and salsa, but NO nachos (and no burritos either). Food is good, just very limited, and by the way, sit in the bar area, the rest of the restaurant has NO service.

We love hitting Local Taco! The food is good, service is usually fairly quick, and they typically have a line out the door depending on when you're going! The specials are always interesting, and we actually took my brother here who's been living in Mexico, and he was impressed! Good Stuff!

Stopped in at Local Taco just as the lunch crowd was leaving. The parking lot suggested that it was likely going to be a good meal as it was quite full ~ always a good sign! We were seated within a couple of minutes by a very cheerful lady in a cozy corner near the fireplace which was enjoyable as... More

Great menu and good food! Really enjoy the indoor patio seating. Wish it had a better views but its so convenient. Ordering can be a little confusing especially to the first-time customer since you order when you come in rather than using a menu when you are seated.

Was staying at a hotel nearby and saw a review about Local Taco and decided to give it a try. It has an interesting and fun menu! The fish taco's were very good. The tequila lime taco's were "OK". Definitely try the Mexican Tater Tots. Be aware that you pay for chips and salsa if you want them. We were... More

Really enjoyed the food and they had a lot of options to chose from. Ordered the queso dip appetizer, which I felt had a flour taste to it but everyone else liked it. For dinner we all seemed to order tacos with sides. First the sides are really good can't go wrong with any of them even the beets. I... More

Local Taco may be the trendy place to go for Mexican food in the Brentwood area, but my family prefers Qdoba. You can spend several dollars more at Local Taco and wait a little longer for your food, but why would you want to do that? I prefer Qdoba.

My family of 5 went here for lunch on a Saturday (my suggestion) thinking it wood be great since the weather was good we all like mexican-style food. We were in for a rude awakening. Although they got our table ready quickly, it took about 10 minutes for anyone to greet us. Despite asking twice, I had to go hunt... More
