We had Torchy's Tacos for lunch and they were delicious. You read the menu as you stand in line to order. It is written on a board opposite the line. There are specials that include 2 or three tacos with or without a beer. We each had two tacos and that was plenty. The choices included fresh veggies and meat... More

So I am told that in Austin there are two taco brands that you need to hit and that most people have a preference of one brand over another...Well I am a Torchy's guy and having them at the Trailer Park may have been the trick to seal that deal. The place is pure Austin and I look forward to... More

This what Austin is. I prefer authentic tacos from Mexican trucks, but if you want fancy tacos torchys is the best. This is also the location you want to go to. Order at the trailer, sit outside and bring your own beer. Must get the quest. Even on the hottest day there is shade.

On our trip to austin we went to torchys for lunch. It was so good, so we went back the next day for more. The guy behind the counter and the server were really nice. I will definitely come back when I visit Austin!

Not quite Mexican but very Austin. So if you are looking for a true Tex-Mex experience, Torchy’s is probably not the place for you. But if you want to have a great breakfast that is pure Austin this is a place for you. The trailer park location has a great atmosphere, where you order from the trailer and then dine... More

I have eaten at various locations of Torchy's Tacos. I've never had a single bad meal since I started 4 years ago. Their hot creamy green sauce is amazing and delicious. I usually get "the Democrat" steak taco with cojita cheese and cilantro and some guacamole. This is a great spot for lunch or a casual dinner. The do serve... More

I go to the one on Spicewood Springs. There are several throughout Austin. Their menu is diverse and very tasty. Not quite Mexican but very Austin. You order indoors and can eat outside. Very casual environment, very laid back.

Great little trailer park and a great space to hang out. Parking is terrible though and the food tends to take awhile.
