A fast casual with roots as a trailer dragged by a Vespa scooter, this contemporary chain asserts that it’s serving “damn good tacos”—both traditional and breakfast tacos—along with “award-winning” salsa and margaritas, in select locations. While it’s solely in Texas, Torchy’s announced that it plans to open its first out-of-state spot in Denver this fall. It’s appeal? It’s hitting on trends: using responsibly sourced ingredients that are regional when possible and eco-friendly packaging, especially for to-go meals.
