Good food at a reasonable price. Watch the parking though! The wait was worth it but there is not enough inside tables.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in the world. I love their chicken fajita tacos on corn tortillas. Seriously delicious. I usually don't care for guacamole, but theirs is GREAT. Their queso has a litttle dollop of guacamole inside, but you can...More

Visited Torchy's with my mom and two daughters (6 and 4). Sooooo many tacos to pick from. I ordered the Democrat and the Baja Shrimp. I didn't love either. There wasn't anything wrong with either, they just weren't my cup of tea. I did appreciate...More

Place was packed for lunch. Luckily got a parking spot. Staff was friendly and quick. Loved the sodas on tap and the many varieties of tacos. Most shrimp I've had on a shrimp taco.
