We're patiently waiting for Torchy’s Tacos to open in Altamonte Springs and O-Town West

Torchy’s Tacos, the popular craft fast-casual taco brand known for its Damn Good Tacos and Green Chile Queso is set to open not one but two Orlando locations this year.

Texas-based taco chain Torchy’s Tacos had planned to open its first Orlando location last summer in Altamonte Springs, but those plans got pushed back, due to what the company called "some unexpected delays".

As everyone in Orlando patiently waited, Torchy's Tacos opened its first Florida location in St Pete at 2314 Tyrone Blvd.

The first of the Orlando locations was slated to open in May, but with May been and gone, we are still waiting, with the Altamonte Springs location at 999 N. State Road 434, still not ready.

The second Orlando location at Orlando's Vineland Pointe in O-Town West is still set to open this summer.

Torchy’s Tacos got its start 15 years ago when founder and CEO Mike Rypka bought a food trailer and set out to change the taco game forever. As word of mouth grew, Torchy’s became known for its scratch-made tacos, emphasizing unique flavors and high-quality ingredients from around the world.

Guests can enjoy favorites like the Brushfire taco, award-winning Green Chile Queso and Torchy’s Taco of the Month while sipping fresh-made margaritas and signature cocktails in the 4,450-square-foot space and accompanying patio. At Torchy’s, every taco, queso and margarita is hand-crafted and made-to-order.

Torchy’s inventive taco creations served on fresh, housemade corn or flour tortillas like Green Chile Pork featuring pork carnitas, green chiles and cotija cheese, Baja Shrimp made with fried shrimp, cabbage slaw and pickled onions, the famous Trailer Park inspired by Torchy’s beginnings in an Austin food trailer with fried chicken, green chiles, lettuce, pico de gallo and cheddar jack cheese, plus many more.
