The fast-casual spot with self-described "damn good tacos" plans to occupy the space that formerly hosted Pollo Tropical at 2314 Tyrone Blvd. N adjacent to Tyrone Square Mall, according to the company's website. Another Florida location will open in Altamonte Springs.
Torchy's taco-focused menu consists of breakfast tacos, "damn good" tacos, items labeled under "not tacos," sides, sweets and drinks.
Known for its variety of one-of-a-kind, "only in Austin" tacos, Torchy's stand-out signature is the "Trailer Park" taco. Coming on a flour tortilla topped with fried chicken, green chiles, lettuce, pico de gallo, cheddar jack cheese and poblano sauce, the "Trailer Park" comes with the opportunity to make it "trashy"—subbing out the lettuce for the chain's green chile queso.
While hosting a multitude of different dishes centered around meat and cheese combos, Torchy's also accommodates to all types of eaters with vegetarian options like its fried avocado taco and vegan dishes like its "Mofaux" taco with beyond beef and various veggies.
With humble beginnings in 2006 as a food truck in Austin, Torchy's Tacos now has over 100 locations with more in the works.
