When we first glanced at the menu, the tacos seemed a little pricey, but they are bigger than we expected and very filling. The ingredients were high quality, and I would definitely consider this to be gourmet style tacos. 2 tacos made a full meal. Another bonus was the trailer park ambiance for those of us not from Austin.

I have only positive things to say about this place. Great Tex-Mex flavor. I took only about 5 minutes for our food to be ready. They have lots of outdoors space, which is nice depending on the weather, of course.

Best Street Corn Elotes is what I have always called corn in a cup but they have perfected it! Tacos are excellent as well. A little chilly this time of year but it was a quick place to eat and a CANT MISS if you come to Austin

Best food, good value, fun eating in the trailer park. We went for lunch one day and breakfast another day, when it was very cold out and we ate by the fire pit.

Wow. I don't come from a taco town so I may be easily impressed but these tacos were tasty. Not one note, every bite was symphony of greatness. Fun location - a real mecca of food truck culture.

This is a must eat place when in Austin. I plan to return each time I'm in town. Can't wait to get back and try more of their creations!

We miss Austin terribly and really miss all the fantastic Mexican food. Torchy's is one of our favorites. The tacos are super yummy, but the queso is the best anywhere.

My husband and I were staying down the street and happened upon Torchy's Tacos. The line is well-justified for the product that you receive. The tacos are unique and it is obvious that careful consideration goes into the salsa pairings. We went back before we left town and had another great round of tacos to remember Austin by. I wish...

This was a first time visit for us. Parking was a little tight. The food was quite tasty, but we shouldn't have gotten ours to go as some of my order didn't fare well in the ten minute ride back to the hotel. My corn tortilla was a little soggy. The inside was fabulous, though. I also ordered the Street... More
