The Local Taco Restaurant Review

: The Local Taco enhances a street food staple with its use of locally sourced ingredients. The place has a fun, breezy vibe. Look out for the specials board. Tacos come à la carte (you’ll want at least two, maybe three). We recommend the brisket piled with pickled red onion and the Korean barbecue with seared sesame beef and Asian slaw. There are also enchiladas, salads and a kids’ menu. For dessert, have one of the satisfying and sweet-tart frozen margaritas. Quaffs include a fair beer list offering some of Tennessee’s own Yazoo brew, a few so-so wines, house-made sangría, and a sampling of tequilas.
