I am a taco fanatic and have eaten some of the best both north and south of the Mexican border and Torchy's really does serve up some of the finest. I loved the many unique and delicious choices. I had the green chili pork taco which was excellent. My daughter tried the chicken fajita taco and also a fried avocado... More

As my first food trailer experience, Torchy's will be hard to beat! Wonderful pork tacos, tuna tacos and service with a smile! Can't beat it!

This was a recommendation from a local. Pulling into the parking lot won't give you much comfort but don't be alarmed at the trailer park decor. Just bring your wallet, and plenty of cash in it. Tacos are very good but expensive at around $4 apiece. There is probably another option with food just as good for half the price... More

Torchy's is fantastic. The taco's are delicious and the queso is amazing. Torchy's is my first stop whenever I'm in Austin.

Visited twice when visiting our son who attends UT. Great service & food both times. The queso is amazing! Breakfast tacos are also great. It is inexpensive, quick food.

Average toco, not feeling great after due lack of healthy choice. Still feel hungry after, but don't want another toco. I suppose I'm not a food truck fan.

Have tried a fair amount of the tacos and even the breakfast tacos, everything is delish! Especially the Queso. We always order to go so we can pick it up and skip the long lines.

Now I love Tacos. I mean I REALLY love Tacos and find new ways of making them all the time. While I was in Austin, my friend had recommended to me a few places to eat, one being Torchy’s Taco’s in Austin. Let’s just put it this way; I ate at Torchy’s 4 out of 7 days staying in Austin.... More

I stopped here during a long weekend visit to Austin. It is in a trailer park of food trucks with ample picnic seating that is actually quite nice on a nice day or evening. Lots of choices of tacos- the queso is delicious, as were the tacos. Most were excellent although the fried avocado taco, while sounding interesting, I would... More
