    I had first experienced Torchy's in Austin a few years ago, and when stumbling upon this one in Houston when visiting, knew I wouldn't be eating anywhere else. Torchy's is a great take on more modern

    The Trailer Park (make sure to get it trashy) & the chicken fajita tacos were enough to satisfy my taste buds. Two are enough to fill you, but I can assure you that you are going to want more!

    FIRST: Get the queso, it's literally the best you've ever had. (The guac) is also great. Then, tacos! The Crossroads is awesome, order the Trailer Park (Brittany Spears style!), and then Mr. Pink!

    Mr Pink Taco and the Crossroads Taco are both excellent. So is the queso and the Fried Avacado taco. You might as well order 1 of everything! But it woukd take you about 20 visits.

    Better than the Westheimer location, and the hype seems to have passed so long lines out the door only happen on the weekend if ever. The green chile queso is a must while waiting for your tacos.

    The chips and queso here is delicious, but google Torchy's Secret Menu to see what really makes this place stand out. The Jack of Clubs is probably the best vegetarian option here.

    Torchy's is cheap, pretty fast, and great quality. My favorite item is the Republican. Also -- try the various sauces!

    Try the Trailer Park Taco and be sure to "get it trashy". The Blueberry Soda is an added bonus! 馃憤馃憤

    For some reason this place is a T-Mobile deadzone. No cell signal whatsoever... but it's worth it!

    Want seating? And not fighting the crowds of kids and parents you will find on Friday nights? Come after 2 pm on Sundays.
