Why? Taco Local!

On Cinco de Mayo, Matthew and I decided to check out Taco Local, the new neighborhood Mexican restaurant. I was excited for a new Mexican restaurant option, that promised food that was more contemporary and flavorful.

The vibe inside Taco Local is casual and beachy, but don’t be deceived: the food packs serious flavor, too!

Taco Local only has frozen margaritas in original, mango, raspberry, or rainbow (all three flavors). I found my drink to be sweet for my taste, so I’m hoping for some on-the-rocks, salt-on-the-rim options in the future. We liked the balanced sweet heat of the pineapple serrano salsa and the variety of styles of chips, too.

Taco Local has both “street tacos” (served three to an order) and specialty tacos (served two to an order). We tried some of both and found the tacos to be generous with the protein of your choice, as well as flavorful and original.

Taco Local is open for lunch and dinner and has a take-out counter, for taco cravings on the go. It’s a nice addition to the downtown Willoughby scene and I can definitely see it being a new summer haunt for us.

Where’s your favorite local spot for margaritas and tacos?
