    Torchy's is the best taco place in Austin. There are multiple locations and they all deliver great food. The Democrat is my go-to order, and the burrito is wonderful as well!

  • Social N.

    When ordering Torchy's be sure to say you're eating there and not taking to go. They give you more for your money and stuff your tacos with filling more than they would if you were eating to go.

    If ordering to go, order it "for here" anyway and they will load it up for you. You can always get a bag later. Otherwise, your taco will be puny because they try to wrap it up all nice and neat. :)
