You would almost miss this little establishment unless you knew where to look, but was advised by a local employee to try it out. The bartending service is top notch, as is the food, friends, and commaraderie; despite all the tequila you'd almost have to fight to make an enemy in this place. Sweet and conservative with a cozy atmosphere;... More

On a recent business trip, the Local Taco was recommended as a good choice for lunch. We did not regret our decision to follow this recommendation. The Local Taco offers the option to have table service or to order at a counter and have your food delivered to the table. We chose the latter option as we were in a... More

I was really looking forward to trying this but found that the food lacked flavor overall. The best thing was the Mexican tots. Surely there is better in the area.

We met for a wonderful lunch here and dined in the outdoor eating area. The tacos were fresh with a variety of choices. I had a fish taco and a chicken lime taco which were both excellent. You can order the tacos either on flour tortillas or corn tortillas. The chips and various salsas are extra but very good. My... More

This is one of those hipper, Tex Mex bar type places. The food was good, they had decent prices and decent service. We ordered shrimp tacos, and were not disappointed. It's a little bit hidden, but otherwise, it's a cool place for dinner or late night food.

We went here for lunch as my son recommended this for a quick, good lunch. Tacos were ok, but not great. I had the salmon taco and wasn't impressed. My son likes the shrimp taco best and the BBQ taco had more flavor in my husband's opinion. I had the beet salad which was excellent for those who like sweet,... More

The food is good but not excellent. The service is poor if you are with a large crowd such as 8 to 10 people. For 2 people it is ok. Our group waited a long time just to get drinks delivered to our table. It was even longer to get our food delivered. Probably would not go back with a... More

I booked a room at the Best Western across the interstate, consulted an online restaurant listing and saw the listing for Local Taco. I'm a huge Mexican food fan--not so much the family style places that were often other restaurants before becoming a run of the mill Mexican joint, but the hipper, more creative places. This is the latter, kind... More

This place was great when it first opened but honestly it's very much overrated now. Call me absurd but even though this is a local place I'll take Chuy's any day. Great margaritas though...I will give them that!
