re: Torchy's Tacos expanding to Louisiana
Unlike Taco Bell, Taco Bueno, and others, they serve alcohol. Their menu is also more "upscale".

I was surprised to see that Taco Cabana sells alcohol

Breakfast tacos run around 3 dollars, and you only need 2 to fill you up.


One Dirty Sanchez should be plenty for breakfast. That thing is huge and delicious. I know it's not one of their cheaper breakfast tacos but it is basically a breakfast taco.

Torchy's has lost a step recently. Not nearly as good as it used to be.




I just thing a lot of people in Texas have gotten burned out on it. I will say their consistency from store to store can be disappointing. I have eaten at ones where it tasted noting like the real torchy's.

re: Torchy's Tacos expanding to Louisiana
It’s actually no bad price wise. Less than $5 and basically the whole tortilla is covered in food. Two tacos and a beer is generally just over $10.

re: Torchy's Tacos expanding to Louisiana
Yeah 1 for breakfast should for sure be enough, I usually get the breakfast tacos when I eat their no matter if it’s breakfast or not tho, that’s why I say 2 will fill you up as a normal meal

The original is good. Will the chain store be as good? Doubtful.

those look like 5 dollar tacos. a 5 dollar taco place wont last in BR.

how much would a plate of 3 tacos cost?



This was Friday morning, was under $10 (without a drink)...two different breakfast tacos and Trashy Trailer Park. It was as awesome as ever. Basically a couple bucks more than Taco Bell for an incomparable quality upgrade.

I’m stoked to have Torchy’s coming to Shreveport. I love that place and seek it out any time I’m in Texas. Hopefully it’s a south Shreveport location so I no longer have to drive 20 minutes to satisfy my taco craving at Ki or Parish.

re: Torchy's Tacos expanding to Louisiana
People will find anything to bitch about. Torchy's isn't the best tacos I've ever had but they are damn good and will do fine here. I think a Rudy's country store would kill it in BR too. Our BBQ options aren't the best.

The line was out of the door 2 Sundays ago on Lamar in Austin. The decline is not real news

re: Torchy's Tacos expanding to Louisiana
I have to say, I really like Torchys. But its ridiculous that a restaurant with (relatively) quality ingredients uses tortillas that I'm pretty sure I can buy at Walmart. Buy a damn tortilla machine and make them fresh.

re: Torchy's Tacos expanding to Louisiana
Torchy's is a horrible example of Tex-Mex. These tacos are overpriced and are made for suburbia. La. will eat it up as it's a step up from Taco Bell.

Meh, I've been twice in Austin, and it was kinda hit-and-miss with me. I really don't understand the hype.
