I saw the Local Taco on the Secrets of Bluegrass Chefs and was intrigued with menu. I am happy to report the meal lived up to the hype!

“Great casual taco joint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Great casual taco joint in what was once a residential home. Good selection of food and drink, good quality. Love the "bang-bang" sauce which adds a kick-you must ask for it.

“Great place to dime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

My initial reaction when I realized that you walk up to a counter to place your order was not good. However, Local Taco far exceeded my initial biased expectations! The location is an old home converted to commercial use. The ambiance while being contemporary is very warm and cozy. Our food came out very quickly and was excellent. My salad was very fresh and delicious. My son ordered the four tacos and enjoyed being able to select four different varieties. We had a sampling of four different salsas with our chips. The black bean and corn salsa was a hit at our table. We will definitely return!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

5 of us ate at Local Taco last night. We had several different salsa's, guacamole and quest dip to start. Very good. Their margaritas are the best in town. Various tacos and sides amongst us and all were delicious. Not your average Mexican fare. Much lighter and tastier.

“Not Tex or Mex, but Lex ... as in fresh, local food wrapped in a warm tortilla. A great meal and super vibe.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

This isn't a typical taco joint. So don't expect lots of beans and rice (and beans) to fill you up. The portions are petite, but worth every penny.

I had the Dinner Taco combo. Two handmade, little wonders--one chicken and one pork--with two sides.

Match this with a great local ale (West Sixth Street) and you're good. I mean real good.

Parking is a challenge, but so is choosing which taco you'll try next.
