Excellent,laid back,funky joint on the Square in Lawrenceville (in the old Local Republic digs.)
Hit Strange up prior to a theater outing at Aurora Theater. In and out in just the right amount of time... to make the show.
Order up front as you arrive and your meal is delivered to your table in a matter of minutes!
We all opted for the awesome taco bowls...delivered in oversized Chinese type take out boxes. Cool! They were filled to the rim and tasted delish! Daughter went for portobello mushroom bowl, hubby went for the Gangster Ck bowl and I did the veggie bowl and added chicken which was filling and tasted outstanding!
Enjoyed margaritas with our meal in red solo cups plenty on the fill and tasted wonderful!! We will be back!

Went on taco Tuesday and half the tacos were incredible (we ordered 12) and the other half were so bad we didn’t even eat more than a bite. I went in with super high hopes because we love Local Republ...ic, but this was such a sketchy mix of tacos I don’t know that I’ll go back. � See More

Three of us went before a play and got there slightly early so we ended up sampling lots. Liked everything and especially enjoyed the lamb taco, queso with jalapeño and the cilantro and lime rice. Bac...on and avocado was a hit and we enjoyed the jerk chicken and San Antonio. Clam was ok but not top of this list. The Mexican lager reminded us of local Cozumel beer. We will be back. See More

The food was good but overpriced for the tiny taco you receive. The beer selection was limited. I only rated two stars because we spent over $20 in there and walked out still hungry. I hope that some... changes are made soon to the menu, but, if not I can always go eat at Moe's. See More

The tacos are so good they will melt your face off! The San Antonio is my favorite and the duck is a close second. The salsa is fresh and not too hot. The queso is on point as well. Staff is friendly ...and the food is prepared quickly. Will be back soon! See More

Tried this today after another co-worker gave pretty poor feedback. Four of my friends/co-workers and I tried it all together and ALL of us loved our picks!

The Chips/Salsa/Queso was the bomb! I t...ried the fried green tomato taco and fried fish taco. I chose the standard corn tortillas but appreciated the flour option!

Suggestions>I think actual soda fountain drinks would be a great thing as well as a tomato jam/relish on the fried green tomato taco!

My friend and I completely enjoyed our lunch today, a first time for us at Strange and the food was very good. So we didn't go out on a limb but the chicken, shrimp and steak tacos were excellent. Th...e rice was wonderful as well as the chips and salsa. Great service and priced well. We will be back See More

Very disappointed with the whole meal guys. First off the jalapeños for the cheese dip, while fresh, had no flavor, not spicy at all. Second, and more important: the menu doesn't say anything about ch...oosing your tortilla. Apparently they come standard with corn tortillas. I'm not a big fan of corn tortillas, I feel they take away from the flavor that you put into the taco. You have the option of either yet the girl at the counter said nothing about it. We tried several of the tacos, but none of them blew us away. I love Local Republic, but I will never go back to Strange Taco Bar. See More

Food cooked perfectly, interesting combinations. I had expectations for a lot more flavor/spice. I had the fried green tomato and the duck, I tried my friend's fish - they were bland IMO. The chips a...nd salsa was amazing. I've heard the Cuba Libre drink is amazing, so I'll have to go back again to try that! I love the concept, the location, and the owners -- hope they are here to stay in Downtown Lawrenceville. See More

I was excited to try this place, but it was a a let down. We ordered five different tacos, out of which we really just liked the fried chicken (and the side of chips and queso). The rib taco was inedi...ble. The duck, the lamb and the fish taco were fair. The service was prompt and friendly, the prices very affordable, and the whole idea of this restaurant is neat. But I don't think we will be back because the food was a let-down. See More

Had a good time with the fam. Food was fresh, tasty, different in a good way. Friendly, fast service. Margarita was good, but would have preferred a margarita glass rather than a red solo cup. Enj...oyed ourselves & will definitely go back. See More

Taco' s were expensive and tiny. Also, a small taco bar like this should keep later hours, in my opinion. They close pretty early and they're not even open on Sunday! The steak in the steak and chees...e taco was really tough and hard to chew. See More

Really interesting (sorry, *STRANGE*) tacos, really quick service. They brought our food out within five minutes of us ordering. We saw that the outdoor seating area was pet-friendly, too! Terrific, u...nexpected flavor combinations, which is what you'd expect from the team behind Local Republic.

The tortillas are corn (unless you ask for flour tortillas), so gluten-intolerant folks need not worry. We tried the braised duck taco, the fried green tomato taco, the braised lamb taco, the O.G., and the cajun shrimp taco. The fried green tomato and braised lamb tacos are a must-try, while the others were quite good as well, mixing different flavors and textures. We'll definitely be back!

My husband and I were so excited to finally get to go last night! We've always been a huge fan of Local Republic, so we knew Strange would be awesome...and it was! Chill atmosphere and friendly staff ...with imaginative, delicious menu items! The fried green tomato and portabella tacos on flour tortillas were 🙌🏼🎉🙌🏼, and the chips and salsa/queso were some of the best I've ever had. We can't wait to visit again! See More

I am a huge Local Republic fan. Was looking forward to STB.... was a little let down. Expected something a little more exciting and better tacos. Will give it another try in a few weeks to see if t...he chef tweaks the offerings a little. Felt the tacos were a little skimpy and lacked the flavor I've come to expect from LR. See More

Fantastic experience! Staff helped me pick out a beer and it was perfect. Tacos were on point tasty. Ate on the patio, music was awesome. Will definitely be back. Those Jerk Chicken tacos were the jam.

My tacos were really very good. Extremely flavorful. I can't wait to give it another try. My only problem and why I am only giving 3 stars....

My tacos were cold.... ...

If they were hot it would be a 4 maybe 5 star review.

I love ❤️ the place. I take my family there about once a week. Off beat taco combos like falafel, lettuce, and tahini sauce OR fried chicken strips, with bacon, cheese and barbecue sauce. Vegetarian a...nd vegan options available. See More

Limited menu, tacos weren't that great but ok, service was good and they did get your food to you pretty quickly. You order and pay at the counter - step up from fast food.

The tacos were really dry served on funky tasting corn tortillas - we were not told we could choose flour. Decor is cool but the food was disappointing. I was really excited about this place. Hope i...t gets better See More
