Thread: Torchy's queso

  1. #1

    Torchy's queso

    Who do I hold responsible for not making sure I knew about this sooner? I owe someone an ass whooping.

    If there was a thread about it already and I missed it, then I will pull an Ed Norton from fight club and kick my own ass.

    it's not my fault. i've been pimping that place for about a year now. it's stupid good.

    trailer park taco, white trash style (w/ queso) ftw. wonderful deliciousness.

    i usually hit the spot on S 1st in between barton springs and oltorf, but there are 2 ridiculously easy drunk taco locations - one on 6th over near pete's piano iirc, and a trailer right in front of little woodrows on w 6th.

  6. #6
    They're expensive, but they are damn good.

    I love the green chile pork taco.

  7. #7
    They have popped up very suddenly. For a while there was only the trailer on S. 1st but now they've got an actual store front further down 1st and one on 6th now. They're damn good, as mentioned. Just had a green chile breakfast taco on Sunday. Really good.

    Permanent location at lil woodrows on 6th as well...

    we hit it pretty often for lunch. the trailer at Woodrow's and the storefront on east 6th are about equidistant from my office, but the trailer is much better, IMO.

    I usually get a green chile pork and a democrat, and the table shares some queso. damn good stuff.

    I drove by the S. 1st one today. The tree w/ the bball rim on it had crashed into the trailer. I'd give 'em a call before going by.

  15. #15
    Thats unfortunate. I hope their queso survive. I don't think I've ever had anything as good. Taco Deli has better tacos but I have never had any cheese related item as good as that stuff.

  16. #16
    our favorite taco place int he city, hands down end of story. Green Chile Pork Taco rocks my face off. Trailer Park trashy, fried avocado, etc ... and yes, the queso is top-notch.

  17. #17
    Been going there about 6 months. I had never tried the queso until today. It was badass, except for the chips that were way to salty. I love the Green chile pork taco. One of the best taco's I have ever had.

  18. #18
    Look I like the green chile pork taco, too, but until you've had the cowboy taco at Taco Deli you are not allowed to use the word "best" and "taco" in the same sentence, unless it is about vaginas.

    You must all be made aware of the June taco of the month at Torchy's, the Crossroads.

    Shredded brisket
    Grilled onions
    Avocado
    Asadero
    Cilantro
    Jalepenos
    Flour tortilla

    Lord almighty... upon first bite, I was at such a loss for words that I could only forcefully utter an expletive.

    You're welcome.

    I got the ranch hand with a bowl of queso today. Damn good all of it. I didn't even finish the queso which will make for a good snack later today.

    The huge stricks of soft steak in the ranch hand is in stark contrast to the pathetic pieces of fat steak I got in my taco shack the other day. i will not return to the taco shack in frost tower after giving it three chances.

    Not sure what Chili's has to do with Torchy's Green Chili, but in order to play along I'll point out that I can't very well "keep going to Chili's" because I don't eat there currently.

    Now it is called woody's and they have a limited version of the torchy's menu.

    they retained the queso, win, though i can't say it tastes the same.

    i can confirm the ranch hand is still damn good.

  29. #29
    mmmmmm. it's dangerous that i live so close to several torchy's locations.
    queso is delicious, but a little too spicy for my weak and girly self.

    I know that there are a few other threads on this place, but this one is what stuck with me. I am a sucker for good queso so I finally made the trek to the new location in Dallas. It took me a while to find it as there are several restaurants at the Preston/Forest location. Parking during the lunch hour is damn near impossible. After 10 minutes of circling, I decided to park in the To-Go spot and take my order on the road.

    The place was packed inside. Despite this, it took very little time for you to get your order. Since I am a sucker for Manny's brisket tacos, I decided to give The Crossroads a whirl. What I received was a hybrid of something. It had the brisket and cheese, but some sort of mango stuffed in it on a flour tortilla instead of the corn tortilla in the description. I don't know what it was, but it was damn tasty. The brisket was nails and I would have happily paid for a plate of it at any Dallas BBQ joint. There was a distinct bacon taste in there somewhere too. Definately in my Top 5 of fast food screwups that I've had. I also ordered a side of refried beans. They were very meh. They are reddish in color like Oklahoma dirt. You get a lot of them for the price, but I prefer Taco Bueno to be honest.

    I also got a bowl of queso, which is what brings me to this thread. The first and second dips of my chip were glorious. After the third and fourth chip, I realized that I was eating broccoli and cheese soup with and avocado slice and some spices in it. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 6.5. Better than average, but I could name you 5 places in Dallas proper that have better queso without giving it much thought. Perhaps my judgment was clouded by Shaggy proclaiming this the "Queso di Tutti Queso". I really wanted to like it and call people out for not having tried it yet.

    I would give this place a solid B+ overall. They have Dublin Dr. Pepper on fountain tap, which I've never seen before. There were also 3 other flavors of homemade sodas that appeared to be gourmet. Had I known, I would have gotten a drink. But, by the time I saw this, a 10-minute line had built up and I wasn't going to be "that guy". The tacos are outstanding and I am glad that they are $3-$4 for only 1 as it will keep my waistline in check. 1 taco, a side of beans and chips/queso was over $11.00. (But, I am full when I thought that there would be no way) I'll probably keep the place on my 3 month rotation of places to hit. If the tacos were $1 cheaper, I'd probably go twice a month. Especially since Paciugo is across the parking lot and Pinkberry is down the street.

    I went to the Forest location today. The queso is the truth. I thought the tacos were decent but not incredible. Got the chicken fajita and The Democrat. I wanted to try the ones with eggs but will do that the next round.

    I went to the one on Forest for dinner for the first time last night. Jesus Christ! It was like a $#@!ing Easter egg hunt. Could they have made that place any harder to find?

    My quick review:

    Stay away from the West side of the place from 4-9pm unless you are going for a nice sauna treatment instead of a meal. Ever heard of curtains and A/C?

    I had a chicken fajita taco (meh) and the taco of the month, the "Ace of Spades". This was taco heaven. A split link of jalapeno sausage, brisket, a fried egg and then all of it smothered in queso and poblano sauce. It was amazing!

    I also tried the queso. It's a cheap knock-off of Bob Armstrong dip from Matito's (which was probably stolen from somewhere else), but it was a solid 6.5-7 out of 10.

    I've been 3 or 4 times since it opened. Their lunch crowd has gotten crazy. Line wrapped around the room by 11:30 Friday. Couple of months ago I hardly saw a line. Line moved fairly quick though. Breakfast tacos are $#@!ing awesome. Migas and bacon/egg/cheese are my favorites. Usually get one of those plus a random different one. Democrat was solid. I need to try the queso it seems.

    I believe you're thinking of Matt's El Rancho, no?

    As for Torchy's, I am big fan of their queso and The Democrat, and pretty much any breakfeast taco.

    Went there today and had this:



    It was the most "-est" taco I have had. Could be weirdest, awesome-est, grossest... I leave it up to you to try and report back.

    When, if ever, did it jump the shark? The sausage and brisket were excellent. Was it the fried egg? Was it the queso, regular cheese and fresh cheese all used together that sent it around the bend? I am not sure. I do know that while I ate it, I vacillated between thinking that "dog's dinner" could adequately describe it, as well as "holy $#@!, this is awesome."

    They should have named it the Enigma.

    When, if ever, did it jump the shark? The sausage and brisket were excellent. Was it the fried egg? Was it the queso, regular cheese and fresh cheese all used together that sent it around the bend? I am not sure. I do know that while I ate it, I vacillated between thinking that "dog's dinner" could adequately describe it, as well as "holy $#@!, this is awesome."

    They should have named it the Enigma.
    Dude! Look 4 posts up from you.

    It was like God's vagina!

    That's what I had for lunch yesterday... at the S. 1st location- south of Oltorf (not the trailer park). The queso at that location rocks. The upside of the trailer park, of course, is that it's byob.

    As for Torchy's, I am big fan of their queso and The Democrat, and pretty much any breakfeast taco.
    This is what I meant, but like I said, wouldn't surprise me if they stole it from Matt's:

    Had the Baja Shrimp and the Democrat today, washed it down with a Dublin DP. $10.55 total, a little pricey but they sure are good. The location on William Cannon is nice except that you can't hear a $#@!ing thing through all the crowd noise in the place.

    Breakfast tacos are great as well. I considered trying the Ace of Spades but I was a little spooked by all the stuff they put on it. I think last month's taco (maybe June) was the Damn BP. A fiery hot version of a shrimp taco, it was good. I agree the queso is excellent.

    I'm a fan of the Monk Special for breakfast.

    For lunch, I usually get 1 Beef Fajita and 1 Democrat.

    I had the ace of spades, it was glorious. My general go-to tacos are the Jamaican Jerk and Trailer Park (trashy of course), however I think the baja shrimp may make the rotation after finally trying it the other day.

    I had the Trailer Park trashy style on Saturday with the wife. It was the tits. I still like The Crossroads a little better, but it's damn tasty.

    P.S. I could only eat 1 1/2 tacos and I'm a fatass.

    ^^^Finished working out at 6pm, had a protein shake at 6:10pm. At 7pm I was eating chips, queso, guacamole, chx fajita taco and the Ace of Spades. It was painful, but I did it. I swear that Ace of Spades may have been the best taco I've ever had!

    Mattitito was Matt, Jr. (son of the founder of Matt's El Rancho). He was credited with inventing it as a kid at Matt's El Rancho, so not really a knockoff.
