There are a lot of good shops in the Nashville area that "specialize" in tacos. There are even several "Local Taco" restaurants. But this one is unique to the Brentwood area. Good place to hang out and relax after work with friends, or nice family outing. Can be crowded and loud. Good service, flavorful taco selections, good drinks. Not a... More

We recently had a birthday luncheon for a friend. The atmosphere was fun and the wait staff was helpful and friendly. The food was ok, but nothing special. Granted I have some food allergies, and the only thing I could have ( that didn't have some kind of preservative or sulfite) was the three cheese enchilada. I could not get... More

My husband and I came here for a late lunch/early dinner recently. The reception was friendly as was the waiter. We sat on the patio and had refreshing cocktails with our chips and salsa. My husband then enjoyed his fajita and I thoroughly enjoyed my enchilada dinner. We will definitely return.

Super cool place with indoor and outdoor seating - friendly service, beer and cocktails plus a simple variety of tacos, fajitas and enchiladas. Delicious chips, guac and salsa and our food was great!

I dined solo at 3pm on a Saturday. Unique flavor combinations but for the price it was not filling enough for me. I'm not a huge eater but I left without feeling satiated. Waiter was pleasant enough. A guy who gave the impression of being the owner or head chef never spoke & passed my table several times.

Flavorful tacos, many interesting combinations which should suit almost every taste and for a reasonable price. Margaritas were very good but small. The guacamole was excellent. The service was prompt and friendly.

Food was ok but nothing super special. I had been here over a year ago and thought it was great. This trip the food and service were average. The original item ordered they were out of and then part of the order was not brought out.

Great casual place to to hang out. Being from California and now in the South, I've been looking for good Mexican food. This is as close as I've found. I had enchiladas (brisket) and they were really good. Try the quac ... we really like it. The drinks were good and the happy hour made it even better. Mostly open... More

We were in the Nashville area for my daughter's wedding and spotted the Local Taco restaurant nearby. We ate lunch there with my sister and her husband. My daughter had recently gotten a job at another Local Taco as manager, so we wanted to try out this place. The service was very good and the food was great and not... More
