One of our new faves!

Really good margaritas! Great little patio once the sun goes down. We started with frozen margaritas and the dip trio...guac, cheese dip and red salsa with plans to order the night's taco special...bbq chicken taco. But we filled up on the yummy chips and dips! Good service and good food in a fun... read more

First, parking is a pain but they usually have a valet. Do the bulk of their business at lunch and happy hour. Excellent selection of customized top shelf margeritas. For that reason the menu is geared toward finger food and smallish tacos with some pretty tasty filling including my favorite Korean BBQ. Not really a family friendly place, more geared... More

We were a party of 5. It is a small restaurant and they reserve the bigger booth for parties of 6. We had a big fitness freak firefighter with us and my husband, a former baseball player and then 3 others. We were squeezed in pretty tight and the guys were uncomfortable with their legroom. The vinyl in the booth... More

I had heard so many good things about this place and wanted to try it so we went there with my daughter and her family. It wasn't bad but didn't live up to the hype. The menu has a southern flair to it. The food was good but not great. The portions were small. It was served warm and not... More

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.

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.

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!
