Good mix of variety here makes Local Taco an attractive place for tacos, whether grabbing a bite by yourself, with friends, or with a client.

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
