Torchy's is consistently good. We've tried almost everything on the menu. Great news is you can be as healthy or as naughty as you want. Fish & shrimp tacos are great, so are the breakfast tacos and anything with the brisket. Chorizo egg and potato burrito is fantastic. They also have awesome soft drinks - the Maine Root line made...

Love this place,its always crowed bit well worth the wait for a table or takeout order. The food is always fresh, hot and tasty. The Democrat, Trailer park and Baja shrimp are a family must have tacos. Not to mention the awesome queso!

We had not been to a Torchy's in years and this one did not dissapoint. We all had something different and our mouths all did happy dances. The fajita chicken is incredible. My husband had a trailer park and made groaning sounds. Yum.

Amazing amazing gluten free tacos! Filling and seem to give more than enough to fill another taco. Can't wait to return!

Just got from torchy's, a great place for a casual dining, specially if you don't feel like spending money. My wife and I just walking, and would not recommend going there on a Friday, way too many people, with long line which have significant impact on the food. They served us our food cold today, but the staff were nice... More

Democrat Beef tacos did not taste fresh. Tables dirty. Old stale chips. The manager was friendly. My wife enjoyed her fried avocado tacos. Will return and try it a lunch time to see if food is fresher. Hint: Needs a bathroom for some of the hot sauces.

We visited this location for a really late dinner. The tacos were still outstanding but the chips we ordered came to the table stale. We notified someone and they quickly brought out a new batch. They were a little better but still old. I chalk it up to ordering dinner 40 minutes before closing.

I went to Torchy's since I had won a gift card and didn't really know what to expect. Nothing special looks wise, but the service is fantastic, the hot dogs are very reasonably priced, and it is served hot. I had ordered a Republican (jalapeno sausage) and the other person ordered a Democrat (pulled barbeque beef). Both were great, plenty... More

I cannot wait to go back and try other tacos. Queso was perfect. Hot Sauces were awesome. Staff at the register seemed preoccupied, but the floor staff kept tables clean and did so fast. Those guys did not sit still. This was my first time at a Torchy's but certainly not the last, already planning our next visit.

Short story....love the tacos, hate the service. Details? Every time we order or go to this Torchy's to eat, it's a joke. The place never seems to have enough staff, or maybe they have trouble with telling time. Today, we placed an order on line at 1:04 pm, was texted a confirmation that it would be ready at 1:37pm. We... More
