Striving for the unique at Torchy’s Tacos

Growing from humble beginnings as a food trailer in Austin to 65 sites in Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado and Arkansas, officials at Torchy’s Tacos said if it isn’t “damn good” it’s not worth doing.

Now, they’re giving San Antonio diners a chance to agree with a third location in the Alamo City at 18210 Sonterra Place.

“By living the ‘Damn Good’ mantra, Torchy’s Tacos is always innovating to deliver the most unique tacos, coveted queso and refreshing margaritas in the taco game,”  said Scott Hudler, chief marketing officer.

The genesis for the eatery began in 2006 when Mike Rypka started making “experimental” tacos.

“No two Torchy’s Tacos are the same, and this is even more true with Sonterra, which is actually our largest restaurant to date,” Hudler said.

The 6,723-square-foot eatery has a full-service bar and a private room for events.

More than 20 tacos are on the menu, including breakfast varieties. The most popular are the green chile pork, Crossroads and Trailer Park tacos, along with the green chile queso.

“The ingredients make the meal,” Hudler said. “From there, we work hard to whip up the best damn tacos, cooked to order.”

A portion of the profits from Taco of the Month, a nontraditional offering that keeps “taco junkies” coming back, go to charity, he added.

Hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
