Restaurants We Luv: Torchy’s Tacos – Austin, TX

Starting from humble beginnings, you have to luv the story of Torchy’s Tacos, but we luv their tacos even more. Starting out as a food trailer down on South First, Torchy’s has grown into a must visit Austin establishment.

The menu includes a wide-selection of tacos featuring slow-roasted pork, fried avocado, chicken, steak, tuna and much more. The tacos are moderately priced range from $3.00 to $4.50 (plan on eating at least two). Torchy’s also features award winning salsas that we highly recommend. We haven’t tried every taco on the menu (yet), but we haven’t ever been disappointed with any of our selections.

Just a heads up, if you’re going during a peak eating time be prepared to stand in line. We aren’t the only people in Austin who luv Torchy’s tacos. I think you’ll find they’re well worth the wait.
