A must try in Austin!

I have been stopping at Torchy's for the last few years everytime I'm in Austin. All I have to say is...fried avocado tacos. Order them. Eat them. Love them. Definitely the top choice! Here and there I try something else, but nothing compares to those avocado tacos! Their queso for nachos is... read more

Go to Torchy's Tacos. You won't regret it. They have a creative taco menu and everything is delicious! I had their shrimp taco and the street corn. Amazing! Everyone in my group loved what they ordered, you can't go wrong. Plenty of options here for vegans and vegetarians too. Don't miss out on the best tacos in Austin!

We went here for 2 days straight just for the Breakfast tacos. They were so delicious. I would definitely recomment the Wrangler if you are hungry- they have potatoes and brisket and eggs in it, just makes me miss Austin already. Delicious tacos! Even though it was raining, we enjoyed the trailer with heated lamps and a clean bathroom nearby.... More

Seriously drunk? In need of cheese? Torchy's. Get it. Happiness in my belly. Also, tacos are good, but that doesn't matter. 24 FOR HOUR HOT CHEESE IN A BOWL WITH CHIPS THAT DON'T SUCK.

This is a great casual place to visit for some tacos. Downside is that there may be a line if the weather is good. Tacos are excellent ( i like the democrat and the republican, although the sausage taco is excellent too. basically you cant go wrong)and for some indulgence go for the fried chocolate cookie (nookie?). Its hard to... More

Torchy's tacos are delicious! I had a shrimp taco, a chicken taco and chips and salsa...all equally wonderful. The only seating is outside, so I wished I had been there on a nicer afternoon. However, the cool and rainy weather kept the crowd down, so there is the positive!

Such a wonderful variety of tacos--avocado, beef fajita, many taste combinations, all at a reasonable price. Great queso and chips as well. You have a choice of corn or flour tacos, which is great. There are great sauces for the side, which add different levels of flavor to the tacos. Worth a visit on your trip to Austin.
