If you’re a fan of the brand behind “trailer park” tacos and “hillbilly” queso, you’ll be excited to know that these and more Austin, Texas taco exports are coming to two more locations along the Front Range.
Torchy’s Tacos will open its fourth Denver store on Nov. 13 on East Hampden Avenue, with its first Boulder location coming this winter. The Texas chain also sells tacos in Fort Collins, Highlands Ranch and Greenwood Village.
For this new, South Denver location, Torchy’s is throwing a pre-opening party from 5-8 p.m. on Nov. 1, complete with free tacos. Once up and running, the restaurant also will have a pick-up window where you can grab tacos to-go faster.
The brand is known for its “damn good” tacos with fillings like beef barbacoa, fried avocado and Jamaican jerk chicken. It got started in 2006 out of a food trailer in Austin, Texas, and now Torchy’s has 65 locations and growing across Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado and Arkansas.
Two years ago, Torchy’s also took a Fort Collins business to court over the name “Dam Good Tacos.” Later this winter, Torchy’s Tacos will open at 28th and Pearl streets in the former home of Turley’s Kitchen.
6325 E. Hampden Ave., 7 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, until 11 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday, torchystacos.com
