Simple, there food is good and better than average but is overpriced by about 30%40%. I can find loaded street tacos here in Houston for 1/2 the price or about $1.50. For more upscale top quality tacos I expect to pay about $2.50 / taco. Meanwhile Torchy's go for about $3.00-$3.50 each. Not worth it.

Be you of the Democratic or Republican persuasions, or even if your more Independent in your political leanings, Torchy's has you covered, with tacos name for each persuasion. (Oh, they also have plenty of other choices that are a-political, and just as tasty)! Be sure to take home a bottle of the Torchy's Sauce. It's HOOOT, delicious, and goes well... More

This food truck started in 2006. Now there are almost 50 brick and mortar locations the tacos are so darn good. Their logo even states DAMN GOOD TACOS and all I can do is agree.

Great place for great tacos. Lots of fresh ingredients. Nookies are very yummy. Nice place to sit down and eat. Fans were great on a hot humid day.

It really is in a trailer park with other vendors. The queso is delicious. My taco was the Baja Shrimp. Loved it. My daughter and her boyfriend live in Texas so they go to Torchy's often. He went to this particular one before when he worked briefly in Austin and says it is the best. Loved sitting outside at the... More

Torchy's in the trailer park may look a bit shabby, but has an earthy charm and more importantly fantastic tacos and fajitas. The fajitas are very fresh and flavorful, but a little small. Think about ordering two - they are inexpensive. Torchy's also provides ample chips and homemade guac. It makes for a great lunch

You have to eat at a food truck if you are visiting Austin. Make it this one! My fiance and I went here for brunch on Sunday before we left town. Try one of each of the breakfast tacos! So yummy! Then walk over to Holy Cocao for a sweet treat afterwards.

Very good tacos at a location ~1 mile from downtown. Most of the tacos were $5 or less. We had chicken, shrimp and steak. All were very good. Pleasant outdoor seating under the trees. Indoor seating also available. I didn't rate Torchy's as excellent because of counter help that missed their customer service training. Nonetheless, I would eat at Torchy's... More
