About Torchy's Tacos

Torchy's Tacos started in 2006 with a mobile trailer, a little red Vespa, and a man with a passion for good food. The founder, Mike Rypka, left an executive chef position to chase his dreams by investing everything he had into Torchy's Tacos. With a new, experimental menu ready to serve but no mouths to feed, Rypka jumped on his Vespa and started throwing out samples in an attempt to draw customers to his trailer. Before he knew it, people were rallying beside the taco stand hollering, "damn these tacos are good!" and the Torchy's Tacos' legacy began.

Taco's are delicious and, also filling! ?Food here was yummy and pretty authentic. ?My girlfriend loved the carnitas tacos. ?Nachos were a little heavy, but that just meant I had extra leftovers.

Ohhhhhhhh my gosh, could these be more amazing? NOPE! With multiple locations and a cheap tastey menu you'll wonder why Taco Bell was ever an acceptable "taco" joint.

My family and I ordered six different tacos and they were all good. The queso was pretty good too. Fun place to hang out during good weather.
