Awesome chips and salsa and the tacos are amazing. I had the tuna and salmon tacos. My husband had brisket and sausage. Great food and service! Will visit every time I can come to austin. This was my second time.

While spending the day in Austin, we decided to eat lunch at Torchy's Tacos. There was a long line (good sign). I got the Baja Shrimp Taco and my husband got the Green Chili Pork and Trailer Park. We also shared Chips and Queso. All the tacos were tasty and had a little kick to them. It was a great... More

We've been living out of state for a few years and were in Austin for a quick no-kids getaway while visiting family. We really miss great Texas food and wanted an authentic Austin food truck experience -- I'm so lucky we stumbled upon Torchy's! We ordered the Democrat - it was huge and delicious! And the side of guacamole was... More

The Brushfire - Jamaican jerked chicken was excellent! Totally worth the stop. The place was packed with people!

We were there at the end of February during a cold snap so there was no wait...tacos were delicious. Had the Crossroads and Chicken Fajita tacos...very fresh! Can't remember what my husband had but I do remember it had a full size chorizo on it. The seating area was covered and had heaters going so it was comfortable to sit... More

Tacos were amazing... well worth the wait. Definitely plan to wait. The wait was fun though - the trailer park is fun and there were a lot of great people we met in line. We each got one breakfast and one regular and no one was disappointed.

SO- we got the pulled pork, trailer park, democrat, and brushfire with chips and queso. Some of the best tacos I've ever had! However- I love spicy and the hot sauce put our mouths in pain! Good thing that's an optional add on. Chips were kinda stale. Dude that took our order at the window was being a douche to... More

The Tacos were really good - we had Shrimp, Caribbean jerk chicken , beef and another chicken taco and all were very tasty. The guacamole and chips were good though some of the chips were not fried properly . The corn off the cob with aioli, pepper and cheese was amazing

Torchy's is awesome! You must visit one of their many locations in Austin. I had to go back and order more each time i went. The breakfast tacos are amazing and the other tacos are as well. Trailer Park Trashy was my favorite. PLEASE come to Denver! I need more!

And actually, that's the name of one of their signature tacos. This place is rustic, crowded but low cost. Even though the cashier lady was confused, we got quick service. Go there, but be prepared for some waiting time in the line.
