Although I am now a die hard loyal local of NWA, prior to living in NWA I lived in Little Rock. One of my absolute favorite restaurants opened when I was in high school….Local Lime. I can’t tell you how many birthday dinners, friend dates, family dinners, ect. were had at that place!!! So trust me when I say, when I moved up to NWA for school I MISSED my Local Lime. I just would HAVE to go there every time I visited home.
Then….this past spring I heard some news that as silly as it sounds…would change my life.
LOCAL LIME WAS COMING TO NWA!!! I mean what else could I have asked for! I often joke, “now that Local Lime is here, I’m good to stay here for the rest of my life!”
I now frequent Local Lime on average once a week (more or less) and let me tell you…IT ROCKS! They did an INCREDIBLE job on the interior. The décor is so vibrant, eclectic, and fun. It certainly sets the mood to match their Mexican flare cuisine. Now lets get to the good stuff….THE FOOD.
Things I highly recommend:
For apps –
Get a salsa trio
My favorite is the Zucchini but I also am partial to the Mango, Chipotle, and Verde as well
Get a cheese dip
DUH. How can you not get cheese dip while eating Mexican
I really love the thickness of their cheese dip in addition to the flavor
Market Street Corn
Use a knife cut off the corn..thank me later
For Drinks –
Local Marg (House Marg) Salt and on the rocks
Local Lite (if you’re trying to go low cal)
Prickly Strawberry Mai Tai (if you want a strong, yummy and aesthetically pleasing drink)
For entrées –
Ok…my FAVORITE entrée anywhere everywhere hands down
They are SOOOOO FREAKING GOOD
+ add chicken if you need some protein
Costal Citrus Salad
+ add salmon (it’s a must)
The rib eye taco is fabulous
The chorizo taco is so great too
The Local Nachos + chicken are a great choice as well
But really…YOU CAN’T GO WRONG
I have never ate anything at Local Lime that I didn’t like which is one my favorite parts about Local Lime – I can mix it up and order whatever and be satisfied
Local Lime thanks for coming up to NWA. You’ve truly made my LIFE!!!
If you haven’t tried it, lets go grab a marg and some dips!!!
