  • Ive never filled up on chips. But on a particular visit to this establishment, I came pretty close.
  • The soda fountain includes Dublin Dr. Pepper (while it lasts) and other uncommon colas.
  • Behold! If you look very very carefully, you can actually get a glimpse of the elusive Torchy's parking space.
  • F*%# YES!!!
  • The Trailer Park: the river oaks of fried chicken tacos
  • ZOMG FINALLY!!!!!!
  • Have a trashy trailer park taco and enjoy!
  • The Baja shrimp tacos is highly recommended. Tangy and savory before you even bite into the shrimps.
  • Wow. Fantastic queso! Better lots of TexMex places.
  • It's about time!
  • Portobello mushroom strips hand-battered & fried, topped with refried black beans, roasted corn, escabeche carrots, queso fresco, cilantro, and avocado, then drizzled with ancho aioli. YES!
  • The Baja Shrimp Taco can be had with your choice of either fried or grilled shrimps.
  • Torchy's Tacos keeps its tacos low-end on purpose, as with the Trailer Park taco. It's filled with fried chicken and green chiles, and can be made "trashy" by adding queso on request.
  • The Green Chile Pork: carnitas + queso + lime + tomatillo = the best Torchy's taco
  • The Republican: it's a real sausage fest.
  • PARKING: If full park at the street behind in the residential area. Don't block their driveways please.
  • Like most places along Shepherd, parking blows.
  • PARKING! There is parking on the street behind Torchy's. DO NOT park at the establishments around here, they WILL tow you!
  • Always get the Taco of the Month!! Subscribe to the Scorch news letter!
  • The Rosco: March 2013 taco of the month. Eggs, waffle, fried chicken and bacon with maple syrup on the side wrapped in a flour tortilla. Interesting idea but a little dry since there's nothing else.
