Torchy’s Tacos is Coming to Tyler
Are you ready for this? Texas-based taco chain Torchy's Tacos is bringing operations to Tyler.
Torchy's, which was started in 2006 in an Austin food truck by former executive chef Michael Rypka, is planning on building a location in Tyler in 2015, though no other details at this time.
The only news of Torchy's coming to Tyler came tucked in a press release announcing the opening of a location in Denver. Tyler's location was mentioned alongside a future location in Richardson.
Taco junkies, we have big news and we can’t wait to share. After spreading like wildfire across Texas, Torchy’s will soon take a much anticipated out-of-state leap. First on our hit list? Mile-High City here we come!
The Denver hot spot fires up in Capitol Hill at 11th and Broadway with an offering of Damn Good tacos, plus a full service bar with signature sips, infused tequilas, and local brews. With plans to open in fall 2015, we can practically feel the crisp, mountain air calming the heat of our Brushfire taco already. Patio seating for the win.
For those Texans still waiting for their local Torchy’s fix, fear not. The taco hit list this year includes locations in Richardson and Tyler, TX, plus a signature storefront on South Congress in Austin. Locations in Plano (1855 Dallas Parkway) and Sugar Land (15810 Southwest Freeway) are also set to open in April and May, respectively. Stay tuned to Twitter for updates.
Upon further inspection, a job opening was posted last week on Indeed.com for an assistant manager for a Torchy's Tacos in Tyler.
As far as its location or any other details, that news remains a secret.
Torchy's specializes in all sorts of tacos, from a Fried Avocado taco, to the Trailer Park (fried chicken with green chiles, pico and more), to the Republican, which features grilled jalapeno sausage, shredded cheese and more.
Torchy's exploded not long after the original trailer location on South 1st Street in Austin became enormously popular. There are now 33 locations, with 32 of those in Texas and the one coming soon in Denver.
Tyler's store will be Torchy's first East Texas location. And with the Rose City's love for new things (and especially new restaurants), you can bet Torchy's made the right call.
