4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Tried the BBQ pork taco, as well as the fish taco, and chips and salsa. Pork taco and chips and salsa were amazing, but the fish taco was disappointing. Would definitely go back again to try different types of tacos. There were so many it was hard to choose.

Oh my God, those were the best tacos I have ever eaten. The neighborhood is a little sketchy, and obviously, you sit in a parking lot to eat. So don't get too dressed up, but if you want a cool Austin food truck experience, this is the place!

Torchys is a must visit for anyone coming to Austin. We have friends who visit and have to go to torchys a few times in one weekend because just once isn't enough! (Obviously)... I always order the Matador (on the secret menu) because I'm a glutton and it's fantastic.... I also think torchys has the best queso in Austin (an... More

This is a do not miss. Somehow they taste even better at the trailer park. Unusual but excellent selection of tacos. Try the shrimp taco.

You really can't go wrong with Torchy's, although the weather can make a big difference for the trailer park experience. My go-to is Mr. Orange, along with a heaping helping of consistently excellent guac. The boys of the family are more adventurous than I and enjoy the monthly specials and all the trashiness they can dish out.

Always good, generous portions, delightfully tasty. Can't go wrong for a quick fix anytime of the day; one of my go-to favs. A must-have when friends visit from out of town.

This is a great place for tacos in Austin. I woupd hate ghoy recommend some of the secret menu items, like the hipster ( fried tuna, green chilies, bacon, cheese, and bean salsa) or the trailer park hillbilly style(fried chicken w/chorizo and green chile queso).

When I travel, I actually think about getting back home so I can go to Torchy's. It's a weekly stop for me and usually the whole family. Our faves: The Independent on corn with extra Diablo sauce, The Democrat, Baja Shrimp, and our son loves the Trailer Park extra trashy. We've tried all, and of course the breakfast tacos! Absolutely... More

The Ultimate in TACO/TACO/TACO! Just tell them how you want it and it is done! Lots of traffic/people and be prepared to wait a short line.
