Torchy’s Tacos was voted the best taco shop in town by students at Texas State. While the restaurant offers a variety of main menu items, it also has a secret menu.

Dominique Fuentes, communication design sophomore, said he enjoys the good food and convenience Torchy’s has to offer.

“I love Torchy’s,” Fuentes said. “It’s one of my favorite places to eat in the square. The environment is unique and the vegetarian options are amazing and super delicious.”

Fuentes said the variety Torchy’s has to offer is what draws students in. Fried fish and vegetarian tacos are a few items included on the menu.

“Torchy’s is the best because it has an overall cool vibe and uniquely good taco,” Fuentes said. “Who wouldn’t love that combo?”

Justin Burk, general manager, said he enjoys the items on the secret menu, especially the Green Chile Pork Missionary Style.

The secret menu items have to be specially ordered, they do not appear on the main menu.

“We make damn good tacos,” said Burk.

He believes that Torchy’s won the best taco due to, “The quality of our food and the fact that everything is made fresh every day.”
