This place was a great find. Great breakfast tacos for $2.75 each. They were fresh, served with spicy salsa and very reasonably priced. This is what I will think of when I remember my trip to Austin

Delicious, lots of different variations, and good value for money. My daughter's company in Dallas often has lunch from Torchy's brought in, but even she was not aware they also do breakfast tacos. Fun for her to visit the original trailer location, and fun for us to experience a well-known Texas establishment.

Prepared to be amazed! Torchy's will serve up the best pair of Tacos you have ever had. The secret is, curbside dining and they are not afraid to pile on the spices. I am actually glad that I do not have a Torchy's in my neighborhood or else I would in big trouble.

Great food truck experience. Everything is amazingly fresh and good! The salsa is the perfect mix of ingredients. Chicken and shrimp tacos are so delicious. Service is quick and staff is nice. Sitting area is in a screened porch so don't get too fancy before arriving to Torchy's. Prices are so reasonable and the food is worth every penny..

Want a Great Taco that's tasty, and different - this is the place!!! WoW I was blown away with the 'secret menu' Trailer Park Hillbilly Taco - Un-freeking-believable... Torchy's are all over town, and can also be found in Dallas (Plano) - I had to go back for more. Just Go, book a flight to Texas and go NOW!

Torchy's is a local institution and I have visited several times. Mostly the tacos are done well, but sometimes put together a little messily--especially when the crowds are big. So what--they taste good and it's fast food, so I shouldn't be so picky, right? Well, there comes a point in a busy restaurant's life where it is looked at less... More

Had a shrimp taco here and it was very good. Their sauce is tasty and they prepare their cabbage in a unique and tasty manner. I'd pass on the guacamole if you don't care for cilantro, it's loaded! Too much for my liking. They have Maine Root soda which is just okay. Service is fast and friendly and the taco... More
