    Try shrimp taco as it was my favorite of all the tacos I tried. Be sure to get the grilled corn on the side as it comes off the cob and is delicious.

    Humanity has maxed out its taco capabilities with Torchy's. It's scientifically and physically impossible to make a better taco. I defy the nay-sayers.

    Live north of the Mason-Dixon Line? Be sure to order the Trailer Park (trashy, if you like queso cheese) and the Dirty Sanchez for Breakfast - it's perfect after a late-night bender!
