    Some taco combinations are better then others. I also found the fried avocado taco (highly recommended by other comments) to be overrated.

    Not impressed by the Grande Burrito; too many flavors/sauces trying to compete with each other. Torchy's does tacos best. Try the Trailer Park, extra trashy!

    Eat outside. Thus location inside always smells like cleaner and they will mop under your feet as you eat. Good tacos but weird spot.

    Queso was old & chips were stale and cost about $7! The place was packed w/single guys alone sporting the Unibomber fashion line & zz top beard- all reeked of BO. Deodorant ban in Austin? Creepy. No!

    No matter what you do- order your food for there. If you get it to go, they'll give you less. If you order to stay, they'll "hook you up" so much so that you'll have to use utensils to eat.
