“Some awesome and taste tingling tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

I have to say these are the best tacos I have had! Amazing "zing" and zen all served in one basket! Must order is their caso n chips! Loads of jalapeño and yes the taste buds are gonna tingle but let it sit and the after effect= zen!

“Yummy fun tacos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled upon Torchy's. I'm Glad we did. The tacos were inventive and delicious. The line was long but the food came out quickly. My husband got the salmon taco and raved about it. It's pretty kid friendly.

“Not My Favorite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I usually only write positive reviews but this will be an exception. I love tacos and latin flavors but this dining experience was just not a good one from entering the door to the table. I do not like the flow of the ordering and worse I did not like the flavors of the many tacos our table ordered. If forced to choose I would go to Taco Bell.

Fun atmosphere, great for a group. Great waitstaff, really positive and interested in our experience. Food was excellent and on target. The waitress suggested the Friday night special and it was great!

“Best Chain Tacos in Houston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Great environment, clever menu titles. Good food quality for price. And charitable, they help ACS and are generally good in the community. Service is top notch and simultaneosly laid back.
Beautiful decor, and close to the Rice Village and Montrose for after meal drinks
