Check out the 'Sacred' taco menu available now at Torchy's Tacos
If there is one thing Austin could be considered famous for, it’s the love of tacos that seeps into the very heart and soul of all who live there. There are many, many, many taco places to chose from, to sample and to revisit, but Torchy’s Tacos is a particular favorite.
From humble beginnings, the Torchy’s Tacos truck has expanded into an empire of Texan food trucks and restaurant venues and they just keep getting better with age. It used to be that only a lucky few could request special items from the chef - maybe they were second cousins-once-removed, maybe a favor was owed - but every so often, something amazing would happen. A request for a new combination would create a taco so glorious, so rock ‘n’ roll fantastic, that Torchy’s might set aside the recipe for future reference.
Nowadays, alongside the ‘damn good’ taco of the month Torchy’s advertises on their menu page, the brand has a secret menu of seven delicious tacos. Yup, you read that right. Seven. Secret. Tacos.
Torchy’s Tacos described the release of the exciting new secret menu options on their Facebook event page, where only fans would see the news;
The Torchy's Sacred Menu features seven sinful secrets that are destined to rock your soul. These heavy metal hitters make up some of our most daring dishes and are tacos that would be known by any true devil's advocate.
The Sacred Menu, as it’s referred to, has to be seen to be believed. Or should that be, eaten to be believed? Pop along to your local Torchy’s Tacos and order one of these babies right now, straight from the secret menu and into your regular taco consumption routine.
