My daughter and I went during brunch hours on a weekday, it was spring break. They were pretty busy. It wasn't until we had already ordered and sat down that I saw their coffee and realized I wanted some. When our server brought our chips and queso, which is quite awesome, I asked her if they still had any. She... More

We pass through Allen every few years, and always like to stop here. The avocado taco is so so good. And definitely get the queso. We got here later on a Friday night, while the place is always busy, we got right in and got our food fast. Be warned - my tastebuds were burnt off this time because of... More

Torchy's is a super relaxed spot with amazing food! Best queso I've ever had! Most items have a touch of spicy-ness to them (hence the name) but it's a good burn! If you love avocado, I suggest the vegan fried Avocado taco, very filling and different and delicious!

The place is always crowded for dinner , always keep a wait time for 15-20 minutes , for to go always order on the phone ahead of time. The sauces are great and make the tacos taste awesome. The salmon taco is super good .

Torchy's is consistently good. We've tried almost everything on the menu. Great news is you can be as healthy or as naughty as you want. Fish & shrimp tacos are great, so are the breakfast tacos and anything with the brisket. Chorizo egg and potato burrito is fantastic. They also have awesome soft drinks - the Maine Root line made...

Love this place,its always crowed bit well worth the wait for a table or takeout order. The food is always fresh, hot and tasty. The Democrat, Trailer park and Baja shrimp are a family must have tacos. Not to mention the awesome queso!

We had not been to a Torchy's in years and this one did not dissapoint. We all had something different and our mouths all did happy dances. The fajita chicken is incredible. My husband had a trailer park and made groaning sounds. Yum.

Amazing amazing gluten free tacos! Filling and seem to give more than enough to fill another taco. Can't wait to return!

Just got from torchy's, a great place for a casual dining, specially if you don't feel like spending money. My wife and I just walking, and would not recommend going there on a Friday, way too many people, with long line which have significant impact on the food. They served us our food cold today, but the staff were nice... More

Democrat Beef tacos did not taste fresh. Tables dirty. Old stale chips. The manager was friendly. My wife enjoyed her fried avocado tacos. Will return and try it a lunch time to see if food is fresher. Hint: Needs a bathroom for some of the hot sauces.
