Best Tacos ever

Fresh and unique. Great food truck with flavor a that popped. No need for brick and mortar. Sit outside or inside and enjoy the fun of food trucks in Austin. I had brisket taco and the Jerk Chicken. Both were yummy!

After reading reviews I decided to to give this place a try. We ordered bean and cheese, barbacoa, chicken fajitas. The barbacoa was good but not all meat. The chicken fajitas were the best. My kid loves bean and cheese she took one bite of theirs and said no thanks, first time ever (that kid eats everything). The beans tasted... More

Had the democrat and fried avocado! Perfect! We were there about 4:00. Still a line but goes quickly! Warm outside but not too bad under the fans. Also enjoyed a cake ball (red velvet) for desert.

Great tacos to start your day off right. Parking is a pain if they have a lot of customers but well worth the walk to get a taco.

I had read this place was good and so we searched it out when we were touring around on South Congress - it's worth the shirt hike. Maybe 10 mins there and back. I had already enjoyed a number of more than satisfactory taco and quesoes while in Austin but this totally made the trip complete... Full circle. Especially the... More

Stumbled on this place by accident and I will be back on my next trip to Austin. Even though I'm a Republican, I highly recommend getting The Democrat taco!

We eat here every chance we get. The tacos are the best...hands down. Get the "Trailer park" extra trashy and the queso and chips are awesome. We will be back any time we get near Austin!! Eat at the original trailer on 1st street.

When in Austin, eat like the locals and visit Torchy's. Large portion sizes, great prices and the best tacos anywhere. But beware- this place can be addicting.

Had to have some Tacos while visiting Austin ! This place did not disappoint ! Tried a Dirty Sanchez, Trailer Park & a Democrat all delicious. I could have easily had more. If you have never been to this location make sure to hit up the mini-mart across the street for some beer. This location has covered outdoor eating area... More

We tried this food truck because of all of the great reviews! Not impressed.....the attendants were very rude seemed like we were bothering them by ordering Tacos! Isn't that why they are there? The tacos were good though.
