Favorite torchy's taco

Recommended Posts

I regularly house the crossroads and democrats with seperate side of queso. Also, the beef fajita burrito is underrated.

May TOTM - Texas Hottie - Cabbage slaw, Texas Hot chicken tender, chow-chow pickled relish with a drizzle of chipotle sauce and honey & cotija cheese on a flour tortilla.

Corn tortillas there are the worst I've ever had. Think about how bad a corn tortilla must be for it to stand out in a person's mind.

I guess if I lived in Iowa or North Carolina, I would eat the shit out of Torchy's.  Just cannot imagine choosing them over the alternatives I have in Houston.  Laredo Taqueria and a million other places have great, fresh ingredients on hot and fresh homemade tortillas.  Cheaper too and less of a wait.

Touchy's fillings are very good.  Their tortillas are some factory made shit you can buy at 7-11.

The Vagabond was good. Liked the flavor of the beef fajita.
Can't wait to try the Texas Hottie. Had a Nashville Hot Chicken at Local Taco in Nashville - its "Fried chicken smothered in our house hot sauce, poblano cream sauce, cilantro, coleslaw and diced wickles pickles". Local Taco is like the hillbilly version of Torchy's. Same kind of hipster vibe.

Sack speaks the truth......Laredo is great....and if you are in the Humble/Kingwood area Tita's Taco' House is the truth

Why do they pour some much glop on all of the TOTM?  Some of them sound good otherwise.

Will the words we have make any sense?

This should probably go in the unpopular opinions thread, but I’ve lived in Austin since 1984  (was born and raised south of here), and I have never:

eaten at torchy’s

eaten at the Salt Lick (I have had their catered version)

no hopdoddy

Corn tortilla are great.  They just fall apart.   

 

Give me the Brushfire, chorizo breakfast taco and hillbilly queso.

Had Torchys for the first time Monday, taco filling was all good but the corn tortillas were so dry they overwhelmed the rest. $30 for tacos and queso for 2 was a bit much.

Got the Tokyo Drifter today. I liked it, it was different, but I really just miss last months taco, the Nashville hot chicken one. That taco was perfect except for the fact it was so moist it destroyed the tortilla both times I had it.

Had that Tokyo Drifter Friday.  Wasn't great.  Sometimes when you put too many ingredients together, the flavors clash.  Seems to happen a lot with their ToM.

$13 for a fucking Torchy's taco????

Not even a burrito (which would still be overpriced)..   Methinks they're gonna regret this one.
