So a buddy and I just got back from our maiden voyage of Torchy's Tacos, the Houston location. For anyone not following, it opened up in the short-lived abortion that was Greatful Tacos <sp> on Shepherd.
The Tacos were awesome, and the good news for those that were critical of Greatful Tacos, the prices are substantially cheaper. It's the standard Torchy's menu, with standard Torchy's prices, and they have two guys down from Austin working on running the restaurant till it gets its sea legs, one of which is staying to manage from what I understand.
Apparently they had a soft opening last night that had more than 500 people and they were turning folks away, so it seems like the word is out and this place will stick. I already saw more people here this morning than I think I saw in my 3 trips to Greatful combined. And there was talent, even at 7 am.
I had the Dirty Sanchez and the Monk.
Go eat there.
