“Everyone loves Torchy's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Their fajita tacos are out of this world, as are their brisket tacos, and now they have gluten-free items. Tochy's is great.

“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Good tacos, well priced and a very nice atmosphere. Even like the pure cane sugar drinks they offer. Oh and the queso is so good as well.

“I love the Austin food truck culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

And Torchy's does it very well. Very nice outdoor, but sheltered, eating structure. The food was excellent and cheap.

“Famously good "street food"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Yes, they are really as good as Anthony Bourdain raved. I make mine grain-free by skipping the tacos - try the Fried Avocado as a "base" and top with Green Chili Pork. Yummo nummo

“I would eat here everyday if I could”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I discovered Torchy's through a friend who raved so highly about their tacos that I had to seek them out and try them for myself. I was not disappointed. I have since made Torchy's part of my regular routine, I can't go longer than a month without craving one. There are so many things to like: the migas, the fried avocado, the dirty sanchez, the queso...mmmm. I've tried close to everything on their menu (and I'm usually a find-something-you-like-and-stick-with-it kind of girl). You can't go wrong with anything here. I especially love some of their monthly specials and wait anxiously for each October to roll around so I can get a Scarecrow (pumpkin seed-crusted chicken with escabache carrots and green chiles). Plentiful portions for less than $5 a pop. Definitely go here when you are in Austin.
