We hosted a birthday dinner party at The Local. The food and drinks were outstanding! The staff was incredible and so accommodating to all our needs. A special thanks to Carson and Jess!

My wife and I ordered a variety of tacos. Note during the pandemic you can find a menu at ZMenu so you can get some descriptions (not all) since their on-line order tool has no details. The corn tortillas were really good and different. We had shrimp, sweet potato, cauliflower and 3 others. Each was unique and tasty. We drove up and called and they came right out with the food. Perfect place for some yummy local food during a pandemic.

A sweet potato taco, street pork enchilada and dark “stripper dust” beer (with a wisp of vanilla) at the bar with a fab waitstaff. Easy going atmosphere, super clean and friendly. If we are ever in this area again... we will return.

The service was awful. It was slow due to Covid but our waitress took forever. A different waitress brought most our things. Everything was served on paper plates and for the price was not worth it. Tacos were gourmet not what I expected. Probably a good place to drink, but not to eat. Going for Austin vibe but fails. Fuzzy’s or Alfredos has better food.
