Torchy's Tacos
Torchy's Tacos, which began several years ago out of a trailer in Austin, is busy with expansion plans. A new spot in Allen opened a couple of weeks ago and, per the Dallas Biz Journal, the SMU location has a sign out front promising it will be "opening soon."

And the Lakewood Advocate reported Torchy's is also planning a new spot in the Casa Linda Shopping Center, although it won't open until possibly the end of summer.

But Torchy's move into Houston got a little touchy recently.

Alison Cook of Houston went to the Torchy's hoping to "replicate an idyllic interlude" that she experienced under the oaks in Austin at the original Torchy's. But she found sub-par tacos and a manager willing to fight to the death to get his menu back from her (he's just "organized").

Well, Torchy said "bring it" in the comment section of the negative review, and then offered a free taco to any Houstonian who brought a copy of the post.

See, commenting on blogs isn't a waste of time. Get to writing people. Channel that hostility.

The comments in the post got everyone pissed and throwing tacos at each other and bitching about how Austin is too "weird" to have good tacos anyway. Then they started boasting about their city's new tag line: Keep Houston Normal.

Just like every other resturant on the planet ... if you don't like the food don't eat it !  Just save your money and come on here an make some stupid statment about the towns that you don't know anything about ...and then just move on !

Eating at Torchy's is like watching white guys play street basketball.

I had a Wrangler and a #4 for breakfast last week.  The corn tortillas were disapointing and tasted fresh out of a bag from the nearby Tom Thumb.  The other elements of the meal were really good.

I believe you mean "Keep Houston Trill" - were already weird per our zoning regulations and that's not in danger of changing
