Austin has lots of great tacos, but Torchy's are amazing. There is a great selection of fresh, traditional fillings and some not so traditional ones, too. They have some great house made sauces, too. They the hottest ones, they are just right for a hot day! You can get the tacos "trashy", which means you get more gooey stuff with... More

After hearing raves about Torchy's Tacos, I told my husband it had to be on our list of places to go while we were in Austin. I ordered the Baja Shrimp taco and my husband had The Democrat (Torchy's version of a barbacoa taco). Each taco was $4.00. The tacos were what you could get at an average taqueria but... More

If you want to try to real Austin food, come here. I absolutely love the food and the atmosphere of the trailer park. The Democrat and Baja Shrimp are my favorite tacos, but all their options are really-really good!

I love the variety here, and try to eat here every trip to Austin. It is fun to sit outside on nice days and enjoy the day. They guys behind he window are great, and will help you if you have questions. It is a little pricey if you need two tacos like me, but worth it. Be sure and... More

On a food tour with "Austin Eats" our first stop was Torchy's for breakfast. We had the breakfast tacos or Migas and they were fantastic. The eggs, tortilla strips and veggies were in the perfect proportion and the sliced avocado on top made it extra creamy. The verde sauce had a nice tang and the Pico had the right amount... More

Torchy's tacos are the best! This food truck location is dangerously close to my work and at least once a week they tempt me. Favorites for me include the Democrat - barbacoa with onions, avocado and cheese. Simple construction but perfectly balanced and addictive. The Trailer Park taco is also finger-licking good, especially when ordered "trashy" style. I've yet to... More

We wanted to experience some food truck dining while in Austin, and Torchy's came HIGHLY recommended. After eating there two times in three days, I can certrainly understand why. The tacos are soooo good!!! Both days we had the Democrat and Baja Shrimp and shared the chips and queso. Super fresh ingredients, fast and friendly service make for a wonderful... More

We ate at this location several years ago. I've eaten at Torchy's Tacos before at other locations but there is something about the whole food truck experience that makes this dining experience taste better. The tacos are always fresh (careful, they may be a little on the spicy side). Don't let the long lines scare you. It is worth the... More

Best tacos I have ever had. They were beautiful and delicious. Fresh ingredients, perfect portions, great flavors and variety. My only complaint is about the outdoor seating with the super aggressive birds. Keep your tacos and chips close to you or it will be like an Alfred Hitchcock movie. Other than that it was awesome. Do try the street corn,... More
