Torchy’s Tacos

1311 S. First St.
Austin, TX, 78704, United States
TEL: (512) 366-0537

Torchy’s Tacos is the little taco trailer that made a name for itself, and is now not only a taco stand in the hipster enclave of South Austin, but a growing chain with several locations in Austin and a new location in Houston. Torchy’s serves inventive tacos in the tradition of classic Mexican street food, served open faced in beds of aluminum foil with lime on the side. A standout is the trailer park taco, with fried chicken and green chiles. A breakfast highlight is the migas plate: a dish of eggs with salsa, melted cheese, and tortilla chips.

Insider Tip:

Avoid the often epic lines by placing an order online.
