“Best Tacos hands down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Do NOT go to Austin without eating at one of the Torchy's - believe they have three locations (at least) now. Just really good really fresh food. Good value. Great selection and you'll always want more...Great queso too! Usually always busy but the crank the food out pretty fast. Well worth any wait.

“Fantastic tacos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

There are several Torchy's Tacos locations in Austin; we ate at the one on 1st Street. There is a nice outside patio which is shaded, if you want to eat there. It is not a fancy place at all; you order at the counter and your food is brought to you when it is ready.
The inventive varieties of tacos and burritoes are awesome. I had the fried avocado taco w/ vegetarian refried beans; my husband had a burrito; he thought is was the best Mexican food we had on our trip. You can't a beer there, but the food and atmosphere are a lot of fun.

“The Best Tacos EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Went to Austin to visit a friend and as soon a I get there, off to Torchy's we go! I'm not a huge taco fan but I am of these. I had 'The Republican' which was delicious. This is a must stop if you are ever in Austin!

“Torchy's is in a category of it's own!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Torchy's sets the standard for taco shacks! My favorties are the fried avocado tacos and the shrimp tacos. Torchy's shops are all about the same: not fancy, pretty small, usually very busy, and just simply wonderful! The ingredients seem to be fresh and flavorful, the variety is amazing and the prices are reasonable. Eating at a Torchy's is a must on every visit to Austin.

“Not the best...not the worst”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Had the Democrat and the Baja Shrimp with the latter being the better option. Just lacked any unique taste. LA definitely has better taquerias.

Guacamole was very, very good though.
