Always a good stop. Relaxing, good, great employees and good service. Orders always correct, and everything fresh. Will return.

This used to be my favorite in Brentwood. Recent change in ownership has changed the place. They also charge for chips and salsa.

Cute Place and patio- windows that roll up for nice weather. Food- You pay for the salsa or dip. Tacos - were nothing to write home about. Salsa & dip are ok. Out of all the enchiladas, the cheese were the best. Brisket was chewy. Sides- cauliflower a gratin not worth the price. Beer selection - average Service - 3... More

Not your average taco joint. Great combinations of flavors in unique offerings. There's a place down the road called Swanky Tacos. This place should've gotten that name!

The food was terrible. Couldn't even finish it and was sick to my stomach the rest of the day. Don't waste your time, money or appetite here!

Always a great spot to go to . Parking can be difficult but they have a valet for you. The fish tacos and shrimp tacos are absolutely wonderful, always fresh ! I have gotten the trio with guacamole, cheese and salsa .

Read the reviews, wondered about service but all was good. Seated next to the kitchen window was unbearable! I do not recommend sitting there. Portions are smaller than I expected for the price. It was tasty. Drinks were top notch. Breathing and not sweating while having dinner would have increased my rating!

It's been a long while since I ate at Local Taco Sylvan Park--now I recall why--bad food, no table service, poor management, no attention, limited menu. Ordered at register, got our own glasses of water, which were ordered but not given to us. Tried to sit on the back patio--it was dark with wet/dirty tables, no ambiance at all...so we... More

Service can be hit or miss, depending on the day/time/and where you're sitting. Food is only so-so. Drinks are FABULOUS!!
