    The original Torchy's Taco Trailer is both a destination and a landmark. Fabulous, enormous tacos filled with inventive and excellent "Texican" filling combinations, with shady outdoor seating. Read more

    The O.G. Torchy's. PRO TIP: Ask for the Mad Cow (beef fajita, black beans, grilled corn) or Missionary-style Pork (carnitas, guacamole) off their secret menu.

    I still dream about last November's Taco of the Month: Fried Turkey with Oaxacan Mole, onions, avocado and lettuce. So suprisingly good, it almost felt like the first time I heard Sgt. Pepper's!

    Do not pass go. Forget the menu. Just order two Green Chili Pork tacos and an ice cold Topo Chico mineral water in an old style glass bottle. Take number, sit under the oaks, await taco greatness.
