    I’ve never filled up on chips. But on a particular visit to this establishment, I came pretty close.

    You don't like the Democrat or the Republican? Try the new Independent. It's about the best vegetarian taco you can get. ...get it with either large fried or grilled mushrooms.

    Torchy's Tacos keeps its tacos low-end on purpose, as with the Trailer Park taco. It's filled with fried chicken and green chiles, and can be made "trashy" by adding queso on request. Read more

    You must try the Jamaican Jerk Chicken taco! While it's not exactly authentic Jamaican cuisine, you get a little sweet and tangy in every bite. A little like the Cuban tacos at El Rey on Washington.

    One of my favorite Austin places, so glad they opened up a Houston location! The Republican is delicious (if you love sausage) and so are ALL the breakfast tacos. My favorite taco place by far.

    The Rosco: March 2013 taco of the month. Eggs, waffle, fried chicken and bacon with maple syrup on the side wrapped in a flour tortilla. Interesting idea but a little dry since there's nothing else.

    I regret to report that Torchy's has KILLED the Chipotle pork carnitas burrito. This beast with a truckload of seasoned meat and guacamole is only $6.50. Eat it today.

    If you MUST have the Ranch Hand, go right ahead. It's their beef fajitas on top of eggs and cheese. The fajitas are a little tough. Go to Chacho's on Westheimer if you want good fajita egg tacos.

    The kids' beef fajita quesadilla is ok. The beef fajitas don't hold up against Lupe's or Freebird's down the street. The meat is a little tough.
