Great Food!!! Great service…

I had the brisket and shrimp tacos with Mexican rice. Both tacos were very good and the rice had nice flavor. Bonus experience here is the attached bar providing adult beverage options and outdoor patio seating which was perfect for my

Overall a fabulous experience! I wasn’t sure what to order, but Marybeth at the counter helped me pick out a wonderful meal. It was brought out by a very kind woman, Kali. She was so helpful and even ran back to get me a fork. These two employees made my experience great. I will 100% be returning because of the great service and good food!

Great service. Fantastic variety and really good food. Everything was good. Hard to beat.


Excellent food. Great service. The guacamole and queso were delicious! We all had different tacos and everyone loved them. My shrimp tacos were delicious. My son had the chicken tacos and loved them. My husband had steak tacos and said they were incredible. The margaritas on the rocks were delicious too! The atmosphere is fun! Definitely worth stopping! Delicious and fun!

Not a bad little spot. Food was out incredibly fast. The tacos were a bit on the bland side but still definitely good. Would definitely go again!

It's a great place with awesome staff. Even better is that it's not expensive at all. The deal on Tuesday is buy 3 tacos get one free. Every taco they have in the lineup is great but I really like how they have a surprise taco each week. They have a lot more on the menu but I never make it past the tacos.

Best taco spot in Lexington! Definitely a must try for anyone new here. It's pretty much always busy - but the service is fast and worth the wait in the line. My go-to is always the Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla or Spicy Shrimp Taco with a side of Mexican Tots. Can't wait for them to expand to a bigger location in Lex!

Fun and lively, good selection of tacos/quesadillas (haven't tried brunch or the enchiladas), and the drink menu is a mix of traditional and fun choices. Definitely leans on the American side vs traditional Mexican flavor profiles, but still very yummy. The guac is also fresh and tasty, not spicy, and worth adding as a side.

Nice place I really needed something to eat. Everything else stop serving food at 9 o'clock. But thank God they we're open and the bartender was absolutely beautiful....I had veggie tacos and black beans and rice with queso and chips. And was pleasant "I just like a little more season in my black beans" but overall my stunning bartender// waitress made up for it....

Oof. I know everyone's doing their best right now, but here's the tacos I just got from Local Taco. Only meat, nothing else. In addition, one of the tacos is wrong. And they were cold. What a rough way to experience their food. The mexi tater tots are good though!

Do you love tacos? Do you love a great atmosphere? This is your place! The food is awesome, the service is fast, and the staff is top notch. If you have a chance, go here and eat. If you're from out of town like me, go to the bar and visit Michelle. She has some great recommendations of stuff to see and do while in town.
