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!!

I just had a lunch meeting there and Connie was my waitress. She was amazing. I would recommend this place and ask for Connie. Great customer service.

We had to wait a little while at this small, but great little taco place in Brentwood. Our food was to us very quickly and even before we ordered, the bartender made sure that he came to us to let us know that our waitress hadn't forgotten us. The food was very good and the margaritas were excellent.

Food is good, but can vary visit to visit. Service also dependent on which staff are assigned to your area. Most staff are very friendly, but we did have episode where confusion over who had our table . We have a toddler which means prompt service is truly appreciated. Often visit for lunch so recommend for quick lunch that is... More

If you want to eat healthy and still get your Mexican fix, the Local Taco is your place. The service is not the best but the food and taco selection is excellent. The brentwood location is our favorite and we prefer the patio. We sometimes just order several of the delicious "side items" to accompany the house salad. Also, the... More
