We had an amazing waitress named Emily that left us a cute, cheesy thank you card @ the end of the night. The salad was good, but the bread sticks were dry & stale. That explains why they are free. :-) My wine glass was gross! It had some mystery lip prints on it... yuck! The food was so s…

We ordered our meal and the salad was good until we got to the bottom of the bowl. My wife found what she thought was a piece of tough lettuce. It turned out to be a rubber glove.... Stay Away.

I disagree with the prople who didn't like the crawfish. I can't comment on any of their other food, because I only go there for the crawfish. I'm not sure how they prepare it, but it tastes like they soak the crawfish in butter. Its good. Don't get me wrong, I like crawfish prepared in the tr…

My girlfriend and I went to La Traviata for Valentine's day. It was a total hassle finding parking, but it was well worth it for the meal we had. There was a set three course meal and each one was amazing. I'm not a big salad person, but even the salad was great. I had the beef tenderloin an…

Taco Deli has stolen the ""Best Taco in Texas"" award from me once again. The Mojo Tilapia taco was life changing, especially with the special yoda colored hot sauce drizzled all over it. I also took a shot of the spicy habanero sauce... careful with that one. The staff was well prepared for the…

I find Chisos Grill one of those little treasures in the midst of the norm. Great Southwest twist on the menu makes it different but not boring. The menu has something for everyone, my all time favorite is the Ancho Chicken Pasta with Jalapeno Cream Sauce... yummy. A great variety offers ever…

So, let me just start by saying- I. LOVE. TACOS. And I have pretty high expectations for said tacos. AND I tend to get a craving for them when most places are shutting down. Well, lo and behold to find that Torchy's is open til 10 on weekdays and 11 on weekends! When I got there, Queen was playing. The guy behind the counter asked me about my day like he genuinely cared. There's Maine Root in the soda fountain. And the food is also fantastic!Since this first experience, I've frequented Torchy's Tacos several times a month. I used to always get the Baja Shrimp and the Fried Avocado tacos.Baja Shrimp is generously filled with hand battered and fried (but not greasy) shrimp, pickled vegetables, queso fresco and lime. There is a great balance of spicy, acidic and cool flavors all wrapped up in the tortilla. The Fried Avocado is a hand battered and fried avocado with refried beans, shredded cheese, lettuce and tomato. I love the texture and creamy flavors of this taco! It is so good, and I never order vegetarian items. But in the past couple years I've rotated in other flavors.The Democrat is filled to bursting with barbacoa. I was really impressed with the quality of it considering that Torchy's isn't exactly Mexican food. It is very flavorful and not greasy at all. You gotta get the Trailer Park "trashy"- fried chicken smothered in green chile queso and pico de gallo. Creative and delicious- this one is a guilty pleasure!I actually got to Green Chile Pork by mistake one time. Although it's not what I ordered, it is pretty dang tasty. The pulled pork is juicy and flavorful and the green chiles- of which I'm not a huge fan- do not overpower anything. But, the customer service at Torchy's is outstanding. I called to let them know my order got mixed up- just to make sure someone else didn't get the taco I ordered and they put me down for a free taco. I really appreciated their customer care! There is a different taco of the month each month that coordinates with holidays or weather, and they are generally pretty great.And lastly, I always ALWAYS get extra Chipotle Sauce and Poblano Sauce no matter which tacos I order. I could drink that stuff!
Literally as good as it gets. People always used to talk about how tacos were amazing in Texas and I always just thought to myself "how good can a taco get." Torchy's. Blew. My. Mind. It expanded what I thought were the limits of good Mexican food. I got a jerk chicken taco and a Mr. Pink, both of which had such a strong incredible flavor and fresh meats that it knocked my socks off on their dirt patched ground at this food truck stop. We also got some queso to share with the group and that really set me off right as it had some red pepper floating around and had a consistency that wasn't too drippy but also not too thick as to turn to lard when cooled. oh my god. If you get a chance do NOT miss this.
The people here are so FRIENDLY, open-minded, and willing to work with my girlfriend and I, who are deaf. I have to have gluten free foods, but sometimes I forget to carefully look at what I order.I originally ordered Fried Avocado and The Indepedent... not realizing they are fried in battered! When they brought it, I apologized to them for my fault in not asking about the batter. They were just fine with it and went ahead to make it without he batter!And... let me tell you, I'm from CA... it is DELICIOUS! Their chips, corn tortilla, and just the ingredients themselves... mouth-watering. Plus the love from the workers makes this taste even better :)Thank you Torchy Tacos!
My sentiments towards Torchy's are like that of a lover. To me, it is perfect. It keeps me on my toes and coming back for more again and again. I love discovering new things that Torchy's brings to the table-- like it's Roscoe waffle taco piled high with a fried egg, fried chicken, bacon, and drizzled with ooey gooey maple syrup, that is undeniably the best breakfast taco I've touched my lips to. I don't need any other taco restaurant because Torchy's is the Renaissance Restaurant. Most recently, I was blown away by the Trailer Park ("trash" style, aka covered in queso), Baja Shrimp (they didn't skimp!), and vegetarian fried green chile varieties.
I scheduled reservation; the parking was easy, 68 degrees located next to Deep Eddy Cabaret which I had not been to in years, so it was fun to walk by a familiar Austin establishment as we entered the restaurant. The food was excellent, I had the Grilled Trout, and my date had the chicken parmesan. The atmosphere was elegant but relaxed, and it made for a very nice evening. When you have chosen a new place to dine especially in a new relationship it really can make or break the evening what restaurant you choose. I can recommend 68 degrees, and I wanted to take the time to say thanks for a great evening. All the best Eric
I. Love. These. Tacos.I love tacos in general. But Torchy's Tacos are some next level sh**. Do people cuss on Yelp? Idk. I'll censor it to be safe. Hi, kids.Seriously, though. The Mr. Pink and the Crossroads are incredible. Flavorful, cooked perfectly, with the right amount of kick. The Mr. Orange and the Democrat are also great. The guacamole is some of the best I've ever had. I've ordered it multiple times and it's always been fresh, with huge chunks of avocado. Can't go wrong with the Green Chile Queso and Street Corn. And the Diablo Sauce. YES.
I have been for lunch and dinner, both were outstanding meals. For lunch I had the Caesar salad and fettuccine for dinner the salmon they have many more options I noticed other tables enjoying along with my friend who had Linguine and Tuna so I look forward to my next visit. Great option I don't think anyone would be disappointed going to this locally owned restaurant on Lake Austin Blvd where Mangia Pizza was located for years as a point of reference for any longtime Austin residents.
I have had lunch here 3 times. The food is very fresh and delicious. The portions are generous and the desserts are great as well. It's located right off of Lake Austin Blvd. - nice area. They have a wrap-around outdoor porch for seating. Casual and the prices are very reasonable. The menu of choices is small but there is something to suit most tastebuds from salads & burgers to pasta dishes. I will be back.
I ordered two breakfast tacos to go: the Migas Taco and the #3 Breakfast Taco. The migas taco was filled with scrambled eggs, crispy corn tortilla chips, green chilies, a large wedge of avocado, pico de dallo and shredded cheese. The #3 breakfast taco was filled with flavorful chorizo, egg, and cheese. Both tacos were delicious and reasonably priced. This is the type of place I would visit again and again!!
Holy smokes... this place will hit your every taste bud leaving blushing as you walk out with a full belly. We had The Republican, Crossroads, and one from their 'secret' menu. Try their sauces... they have about 5 or 6. Their flagship hot sauce is tomato based and brings the heat but with good flavor. Our first time in Austin and we stumbled on it for lunch...excellent find and great service.
