Let’s taco’ bout Torchy’s Tacos people! Two words, these tacos are:
& how about that cute decor? But holy moly talk about crowded. I definitely don’t recommend trying Torchy’s out if you’re in a time crunch. You’ll be waiting in line to order and then waiting for those bad boys to come out of the kitchen. My sister and I went during the lunch rush and sorely regretted that decision.
After 17 days of waiting, we FINALLY got our food. Jk lol it was like an hour. I wouldn’t go as far to say it was worth the wait since we’re more or less talking about street tacos here but they are pretty good.
I tried the Trailer Park taco “trashy,” which is fried chicken, green chile, pico de gallo, cheese, and poblano sauce on a flour tortilla smothered in queso. Queso is literally the backbone of my existence so I was in heaven lol. I also tried the Baja Shrimp taco which was good. It’s hand battered fried shrimp with cabbage slaw, pickled jalapeños, onions, queso fresco and cilantro on a corn tortilla. Two tacos were plenty to fill me up; I couldn’t even finish all of the Baja Shrimp. If I had to pick my favorite out of the two, it would definitely be the Trailer Park.
My sister also got the Baja Shrimp taco which she loved and then for her second she tried the Brushfire taco. The Brushfire comes with Jamaican jerk chicken, grilled jalapeños, mango, sour cream, cilantro, and diablo hot sauce on a flour tortilla. This one definitely has some kick to it but the mango and sour cream calmed the spiciness down considerably. Her favorite was the Baja Shrimp.
Since we went for lunch during the work week, we didn’t indulge in any margaritas but Torchy’s is equipped with a full bar if you’re thirsty! We’ll definitely be going back when we aren’t in such a rush to enjoy some drinks and more tacos of course.
Check it out! They have four locations in Denver and one in Fort Collins!
