Austin’s popular Torchy’s Tacos has set up its first Houston outpost in the short-lived Greatfull Taco location on South Shepherd. The food-trailer-born venture has several locations in Austin and Dallas and now Houstonians have access to the venture’s wallet-friendly array of signature tacos.
Loyal fans and newcomers will find more than a dozen taco varieties including the Fried Avocado taco, savory Baja shrimp taco and the signature Dirty Sanchez—the latter of which features scrambled eggs and fried poblano chiles topped with guac, esabecha carrots, shredded cheese and poblano sauce.
Parking is limited and don’t be surprised if there’s a wait. Take a cue from locals and place your order online to avoid the wait. Torchy’s is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
