As we slowly pull out of this COVID pandemic, I’ve seen a lot more restaurant activity of late since February. Restaurants are slowly opening up with renewed confidence in the future for diners and life in general. What’s really great is that the Triangle has pulled through the pandemic in style and new restaurants are quickly filling in gaps of restaurants lost in 2020. One of the more exciting new additions is the upcoming Torchy’s Tacos out at Midtown East! A popular Tex-Mex chain from Austin, Texas, Torchy’s will be their first East coast location so I feel pretty special! Highlights include their Trailer Park taco (fried chicken, green chiles), breakfast tacos and queso. They’ll also have a bar pouring margaritas, beers and more, perfect for their side patio.
Opening officially on May 5, I was able to join Torchy’s for their Friends and Family preview event with 3 friends. A LOT of food was ordered and it was all very good.
And a tip online pointed me to Torchy’s secret menu as seen above. These tacos are ginormous and packed with filling making them easily worth 2 to 3 tacos, wow! The generous portions here mean 2 tacos are all that you need compared to the basic tacos around here.
