Trailer Tacos with Friends

Torchy's was highly recommended by my Austin friends as a must do. They were right! Come early or order ahead either online or by calling ahead. We got chips and queso, the street corn, and four different tacos. Everything was amazing!! Parking is a challenge so park offsite. Prices are fantastic.

I had no idea what to order, as it all sounded great. I finally asked Mathew, the cashier for help. His recommendations were wonderful. We tried four different kinds... Chicken, Democrat, shrimp and pork. All were AMAZING! Coconut shrimp was the special for the day... It was unique, a bit sweet, a bit crunchy and very flavorful. We leave for... More

I've never been to the location on First Street, but the other three locations I have visited are wonderful and not in a food trailer park. I have visited so many locations because the food is great; as a matter of fact, it is so great, I believe they're up to four locations now. Not bad for a local eatery.... More

Best guacamole hands down. They have a diverse range of tacos. Try the Democrat or the Republican. This is an Austin original...they also serve sodas made with pure cane sugar..

This is not your normal Mexican food place. Don't come here if you are looking for traditional. Yes they have the most fabulous queso and guacamole but it is the unusual tacos that draws me here every time! Just go to their website and take a look at their menu! The Democrat is one of my favorites. Worth going to.... More

We discovered Torchy's in Austin a few years ago when we could walk to one just down the street from our house. I laughed when somebody told me that one would fill me up. They weren't kidding! My husband and son can finish two, but just barely! The queso and guacamole are very fresh, and delicious to munch on while... More

Stopped at Torchys for a taco a couple hours after landing in Austin and it was everything. I got the salmon taco -- and the cheese sauce is a must. LOVE Torchys.

This outdoor food truck hot spot was so amazing we went back twice... during a 4 day weekend trip to Austin. They were super friendly and had great recommendations for first timers! These tacos were so fresh and delish! Definitely try the trashy trailer park....it is fried chicken soft taco covered in quezon! They have picnic tables under some trees... More

This place is a must when you are in Austin. The Tacos are great and very unique. Make sure to get the chips and queso with your meal.
