The Nashville taco hotspot, Ladybird Taco, has made its way to The Magic City. Birminghamians may be familiar with Ladybird from one of their many pop-ups at coffeeshops such as Cala Coffee, but the brick-and-mortar restaurant is now open for biz. From coffee and breakfast tacos to mouthwatering queso, they truly have it all.
