{Foodie: Torchy's Tacos}

I like to think of myself as an amateur foodie and love to try any place new. In the process we get explore the surrounding areas like Austin, Cedar Park, and Round Rock. Our latest foodie adventure took us to Torchy's Tacos in central Austin. Torchy's had been recommended to us by several people and it did not disappoint!

As we arrived the line was literally out the door! We took this as a good sign, joined the line, and browsed the menu. Michael landed on the "Democrat" with shredded beef barbacoa topped with fresh avocado, queso fresco, cilantro, onions, and wedge of lime {$3.75}. I chose the "Trailer Park" with fried chicken, green chilies, pico de gallo and poblano sauce {$3.25}. I also chose to make my taco "trashy" and added queso. 

We chose a table on the inviting patio surround by a bamboo "wall" and necessary ceiling fans. We also ordered chips and the salsa "Roja" which practically came in a soup bowl {$3.50}. They must know we like a lot of salsa and bottomless chips! Our tacos came out juicy, moist, and flavorful, piled high with our respective toppings and two corn tortillas, {flour is also an option}. 

We had eaten most of the salsa by this point :)
The food was great, the staff friendly and atmosphere casual. We will definitely be returning to Torchy's Tacos soon!

What new places have you tried lately?
