A very unique dining experience of eating in a trailer park! Torchys tacos had really good food and we enjoyed our meal. We took our meal and ate it at the picnic benches near by. There are also other vendors at this park. Great experience!

My hubby and I stopped here quickly on a cross-country road trip. I'm not even a fan of breakfast tacos but these were killer!

We had the Scallwag (shrimp battered and fried) and the Green Chile Pork tacos. They were delicious!! The shrimp wasn't too greasy, super crunchy battered with some so bad for you cereal. And the green chile pork was good too. The shrimp was best though. They were highly efficient handling the thousands of hungry festival goers. I didn't see the... More

Torchy's has become well known for their tacos. The fried avocado taco is delicious - not sure where they get the corn tortillas but they taste better than most tortillas I have had. Quick service, a nice place to sit either out under the trees or under a roof - it can't be beat for informal dining. Been here many... More

Torchy's has become my favorite for great vegetarian tacos. The vegetarian Independent is excellent even compared to meat tacos. The tacos are a little pricy but worth it compared to your usual tacos. The sodas are also very good!

Torches is the goto place for tacos, not just in Austin anywhere. Do yourself a favor and try some and ask for the hidden menu.

Significantly overpriced. Incredibly mediocre. “Taco Tuesday” at my local “greasy spoon” back in California sells tacos that are the same size, utilize shredded beef rather than ground beef, and cost less than half as much. Here at Torchy’s, we tried two types of these overpriced tacos, “The Democrat,” and “The Crossroads.” “The Democrat” was the better of the two, but... More

Torchy's is one of the best taco spots in Austin, for sure. When I lived in Austin, the one at the Trailer Park was one of our go-to spots to bring out of town guests to upon arrival in the city. Their queso is the best in the city, and their taco of the month is usually pretty inventive and... More

I liked the idea of the food trucks lined up in one spot so I could try different items if I wanted to. The food here was very good. The flavor was different than anything I am used to.
