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

Their guacamole and melted cheese, honestly so incredibly good!!! Can't beat Torchy's. The food is incredible, the prices are very reasonable, the... More

This is where we go when my family wants really good tacos! We eat at a Torchys Tacos almost once a week, and there are no locations relatively near us since we live in Cypress! I love the Dirty Sanchez. My daughter loves the grilled chicken fajita tacos. The tacos are tasty, filling and inexpensive! The sauces are delicious and... More

One of my son's favorite places. Had munch there yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Service is friendly and prompt. I really liked the guacamole, which had, for me. The right combo of hot and cilantro. The shrimp tacos were excellent. Definitely will return.
