After the hockey game, our entire family met at Local Taco in Brentwood for dinner. We had a very enjoyable evening. The service was very friendly and efficient. The food and margaritas were outstanding. Definitely would go back again and again.

Love going to this cozy place and enjoying their eclectic assortment of tacos. Drinks are not bad at all.

Forgettable. It's not that it's bad, it's just not that good. If you are a Tex Mex kind of person or whatever, or you've actually been to killer taco joints, you will feel ripped off here. It's typical Nashville-Brentwood "good", which is to say, not very impressive.

Enjoyed a nice evening with friends. Live atmosphere and great taco options. I enjoyed the bbq local taco, tequila lime chicken taco and the buffalo chicken taco. All 3 were delicious and full of flavor. BBQ taco was the best. Caution, the buffalo chicken had some heat. Only negative was the noise. Concrete floors and multiple glass garage doors amplified...

Ok Mexican food. The food is good. However, the quantity is very small for the prices. After dinner you will still be hungry. The prices are high for the quantity of the food and also compared to other Mexican restaurants nearby. If we are in the area and the near by restaurants has long wait time we might eat in... More

At first, a local might see this menu and feel underwhelmed with repetition and allusions to places who've been doing "fusion tacos" around Nashville for a while. But... a few bites and you'll end up bypassing your old taco place to come here. The flavor profile on the tacos and sides were definitely a step above some of the competition.... More

I'm from NC visiting my daughter so we decided to have lunch at Local Taco yesterday. I ordered the taco lunch special with Mexi-Tater Tots - 1 spicy shrimp and 1 Korean BBQ in lettuce wrap. My daughter ordered the spicy shrimp taco lunch in soft tortilla with slow cooked turnip greens, which were deelish. We both were very pleased... More

The tacos were good, salsa and guacamole were underwhelming and the sides are WAY overpriced for what you get. Not impressed at all

Food was ok. Service was not good at all. Stood at the check in for a long time before being acknowledged. A guy came up and started to tell us how slammed they were awhile ago and explained that they only have one server and one bar tender. Not to sound harsh, but would rather not hear about their issues.... More

The saltiest chips I have EVER tasted in my life! Ordered the brisket nachos, and they were uneatable, due to the salt on the chips. Told server, and she got use some queso and salsa to try to kill the taste, but it's still too much salt. Really like this place, and have not ever had a problem. Won't let... More
