Friendly staff and good service. Daily specials are usually a good choice. Like the variety of tacos. Bartender made special drink on request. Good place to meet friends. Like the outdoor patio. Sometimes chips can be too salty.

Interesting variations on traditional Mexican food. Good small margaritas. A bity busy at 5:30 PM, so I had to wait for service. As single diner I did not have many table choices.

I live nearby and have eaten here several times. Each time I leave thinking, well, the food was decent but you sure don't get much for you money. Either lower the price or increase the portion sizes. As is, its too little for too much. Too many other good value options in the area.

I love the tacos and the guacamole; the queso is AMAZING. I went here for a quick late lunch with my dad a few days ago. The hostess was very inattentive which gave us the feeling we wouldn't be treated well. Someone needs to teach her the 10 and 5 rule -- we were only a counter space away from... More

I really wanted to like Local Taco. We stopped in on a Saturday around noon to eat on the patio. It was sunny & 85 degrees & perfect patio weather. We walked in and didn't have to wait for a table very long. We sat out on the patio off the bar area. They've got two patio areas. We ordered... More

Great atmosphere with large garage doors that open up to the outside. Great Staff and the taco selection is unique to Nashville offering the local BBQ and Fried Chicken dishes in a taco.....AWESOME!

Met a friend and daughter here for a quick meal on a Wednesday which is Lobster BLT burrito day. Very fast service, after ordering at the front desk and finding your own table (for lunch). Fresh food and minimal service, but not much service needed.

The smoked chicken salad is excellent--one of my favorite salads in town. Good top shelf margaritas, too. My husband loves the grilled corn on the cob.

Early dinner at Local Taco was a riot. There were several families with small children and the atmosphere was lively and noisy, but not uncomfortably so -- it just added to the sense of fun dining. Chips with guac and salsa and queso were typical and delicious. The menu is delightfully "out of focus," my term for quirky, interesting, imaginative... More

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.
