Love these little taco shops: Coupla bucks for a filling meal. Torchy's is a little pricier than Rusty's or Fuzzy's, but I think that they have a little more filling in their tacos. I liked the "Democrat' which was barbacoa with tomatillo sauce. On this trip, I also enjoyed a green chile pork talk. Also, their "craft" fountain drinks are... More

Disappointing open-faced tacos w/ little and greasy meat (brisket). I ordered chips and hot sauce to go w/ the disappointing taco, but they were oily and the hot sauce fairly tasteless. Over all, a loss. I was glad that it all stayed down, but I felt uncomfortable all evening. I had a good experience several months earlier but the chef... More

I love the breakfast menu! The corizo and eggs on flour tortilla is my favorite! Do not pass on the Diablo hot sauce if you like the heat! I have tried most of the menu there and it is really good stuff!

Accidentally came upon this place while running errands around town. From the moment I read the menu I was impressed: catchy funny names, ingredients and pairings that were unique. Once we got the food I was blown away by the quality. Presentation is very basic (it's a fast casual place), but it was very good. Portions are decent, flavors spot-on.... More

While on vacation in the area my wife and I decided to try this place based on reviews. The selection of tacos is like none I have ever seen. First time through I had the Baja taco with fried shrimp, cooked cabbage slaw, jalapenos, onions, cilantro and a lime wedge. Also, had the street corn which was very good. Second... More

Torchy's is definitely a stand-out, when it comes to tacos and queso. The food quality is consistently good. Just make sure you get there early, to get a seat! You'll find your new lunchtime addiction...

I am from Boston and have had a lot of Tex-Mex in my days. This place has the best Queso & Avocado ever! I had the chicken fajita taco which was delicious and big! The Maine Root (Root beer) was sooo goog too. I will return before I leave Texas!

This was close to our hotel, so our family tried it one evening on vacation. Very Glad we did! At first, kids were a little skeptical of selecting a 'specialty taco', but they each had the beef and chicken fajita taco and were very pleased. We all LOVED the Queso - had read lots of high reviews on it and... More

Yes, I'm addicted to Torchy's queso and quaucamole. I think it's some of the best I've ever eaten! I enjoy their breakfast tacos and migas as well.

I had the the pork green chile pork taco, street corn, queso and home brew soft drink. All were very good as always. It's busy at lunch but line moves fast. Busy = fresh food in my book.
