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.

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

Oven was broken on our visit so that eliminated several menu items. They should let you know this before you are seated, not when you're getting your order taken. The rice in the chicken bowls we ordered was not cooked. Crunchy, uncooked rice, major foul!

Went there for dinner. The prices were very reasonable. The food was a little too spicy for me, but they were very accommodating in preparing one dish extra mild.

Was here on business for a week. This restaurant was a short walk from the hotel. The food was so delicious! If I lived here I would eat here often. Cute inside.
