I am picky on where I order menudo. After tasting a sample, I ordered a large bowl. Coffee was hot and service was excellent. The only thing missing was buttered Bolillos. Definitely will be back.

Great find today! Friendly service and great breakfast. Chips and salsa were fresh. The place was packed but someone quickly cleaned off a table for me. Plenty of food for cheap price! Definitely will return.

WOW. I might never go to Torchy's again. This place is incredible. The fajitas were perfect, and the beans were so delicious. The fresh flour tortillas were also to die for. Their prices are are unbelievably cheap. I will definitely be coming here again.
