My friends and I love this place and come here all the time. Some of the best tacos. Great atmosphere to hangout with friends in a fun/social location. The lines can get really long but Local is good at getting your food to you quickly.

Great variety of tacos. Their daily/weekly specials are unreal. Can’t go wrong with anything. Most orders are served with 2 or 3 tacos with chips and queso. Oyster tacos, catfish, crawfish, etc are some of the specials. The mainstays are always great too. Highly recommend

Local Taco is totally worth the wait. Went on a Saturday around lunchtime and had to wait about 20-30 minutes. The food is amazing. They have daily lunch specials too. Highly recommend the shrimp tacos.

This place seems to always be crowded. There was a line out the door for a Friday lunch time. You pay and order up front. The tacos are small, but delicious! The chips and salsa was also great! Reasonably prices and a nice atmosphere!

What a treat! The food is delicious, the staff is great, and the restaurant has a great vibe. The seating selection is excellent: outside on the patio, inside with the doors raised to have an in and out feel, or farther inside the restaurant. We...More

Excellent flavor, portions, quality, and atmosphere. Place is always crowded and parking around the place is not the best, but it is worth the walk if you have to park far away. Enjoyed so much for lunch, I'm going back for dinner. Price point is...More
