The bean and cheese breakfast tacos are sooo good. Tony, the owner, has personally taken care of us every time we go. He's made sure we're satisfied with our order before leaving. Villa Taco Shack is still open although it says it's closed.

The location makes the restauarant a little tricky to find and the location is a little dated, but the food and service make up for that. We had a coupon so decided to try it out. We'll definitely go back again..

I tried this place when it was under different management and I wasn’t impressed, but after lunch today I think I have found a new Downtown delight. The place is cozy and offers interior Mexican food at a reasonable price. Maybe a little too much for lunch but the food was amazing. The gree…

This is my first review. I've been to other TC's in the Austin area and have had great food and service. This one is not like the others. I've been to this one during the daytime hours and they have managed to mess up my order. Within the last month, I've been only 3 times, and only between 6…

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!
I've been coming to Trudy's for years, normally for a special occasion because they have the famous Mexican Martini, and a free one on your birthday. The parking here fills up fast but if you're coming at dinner a lot of the other businesses in the lot are closed, which opens up some spots. Just be ready to park on the other side of the lot and walk a little bit. The building itself is pretty cool- it has a lounge feel, the upstairs bar is good for small groups. The outside patio still has pretty good climate control. The booths are huge! It gets pretty loud inside, and you can expect a pretty long wait for dinner Thursday- Saturday. The atmosphere is fun- perfect for parties or group dinners. I like this location better than the one near campus because you don't have quite so many drunk college students.I pretty much stick to the same order every time- Stuffed Avacado with suiza sauce, refried black beans and rice. This entree is soooo good. I'm always a little surprised at how spicy the sauce is (not to mention the complementary salsa), but nothing a Dr Pepper can't handle. I just recently tried the weekend brunch and was pleasantly surprised. I normally don't like buffets at all. The salad bar is small but stocked with good stuff, and the homemade chipotle ranch is divine. The fruit was fresh and sweet. There's queso and tortilla soup available. On the hot buffet line, I tried a little bit of everything, but since I was there later, I didn't try as many of the breakfast items- there's migas, hashbrowns, and other breakfasty items. I reallly liked the mushroom enchiladas, mini stuffed poblano peppers and mini stuffed avacados. Then there's little dessert items, including flan, tres leches, cobbler, and cookie squares. I tried the cookie squares because I was really full after everything else. The buffet was 11.95, including a drink. I normally get the stuffed avacado which is 11 alone, plus a drink. So I'd say that the buffet is a pretty awesome value for what you get.
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.
Was at the hotel next door for a board meeting. There were about 6 of us who arrived the evening before so we went together to Pappcitas. The place was really busy but our wait was fairly short. The staff were great, the menu had lots of choices & our waitress was great telling us details when we asked questions. The "Adult Beverages" were made by an experienced bartender. When we got our food it was very good and obviously not been left sitting, the meats were still sizzling. We agreed we would go back when we go to our next meeting.
I've been there twice the food was pretty good yesterday I went with a bunch of girlfriends we had happy hour margaritas the first margarita was awful so so I pick top. Shelf tequila el patron it was really good but it was $10 and was really small. So much for happy hour prices I didn't mind the $10 margarita but it sure was small I will continue to go there because I think its a nice restaurant and the food is great but I won't be ordering margaritas the waiting staff was excellent . The atmosphere was wonderful also. Thanks for reading
The northwest Austin Arboretum location is great for business lunches or happy hour. Small two-person high-top tables next to the bar are first come first served and great for times when there's a long wait for table seating. The Z’ Burger is probably one of the top 10 burgers in Austin, with a great bun, despite it being priced slightly on the high side when adding cheese. Service is not exemplary, but by all means prompt, thorough, and most oftentimes, friendly.
