We went to this place with lots of expectations, but at the end we leave the place with a huge disappointment feeling. The food was bland, with cheap ingredients starting from their queso which was the same kind they use at Taco Bell . Service was not great either, and the prices even though were not high, I can assure... More

Yum - good and much food and cheap prices. Very good. Only looking for a parking spot can last. It's worth it though.

That is right, I love the Trailer Park Taco (fried chicken strips) trashed (with Cheese). This place is busy, because it is good. Once you have been here, you will come back too. Also try the Queso and chips, a little on the hot side. Yum...

This place opens until 11pm which was perfect for us. Make sure you order some chips with cheese and diablo sauce. Good quality price ratio. Recommended.

Torchy's in the Heights is a great neighborhood place! Good taco menu - good variety from breakfast tacos, to seafood tacos, traditional and some non-traditional. serve beer and other alcohol. Nothing like a beer with your taco!! Reasonably priced.

I had been told when I moved here that Torchy's was the place to go for a taco so I went for lunch and tried two different ones and was disappointed with both. I gave it another shot for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. So I went back again for lunch and was not happy with my taco...so I guess... More

The lines for lunch were long and parking was a challenge. Other restaurants nearby were not so busy but everyone was waiting to get their meals at this Mexican taco joint. And now we know why. The food was exceptional. The staff was incredibly helpful and we even got to try fountain drinks ala Mexico. The place is definitely hopping... More

Ordered tacos online to go and it was so easy. You can customize on the website and they make it really intuitive and enjoyable. The tacos were awesome. Tried a fajita taco and a shrimp taco. Both really good. They were fully stuffed so I barely could eat both. The retried beans were good. All the salsas and sauces were... More
