According to the Upper West Side PHX blog, a new location of Torchy’s Tacos is coming to Avondale.
First started in Austin, Texas by Mike Rypka, the taco chain currently has over 90 locations across the nation, but the unyielding dedication to crafting high-quality, cooked-to-order tacos has remained unwavering. Though each location has its own unique and different design, the commitment to top-notch ingredients is found in all their kitchens. To do so, they focus on developing partnerships around the world to responsibly source their ingredients.
Their menu includes tacos and bowls, with sides like chips and queso, street corn, refried beans, and rice, as well as a happy hour. They also have a special “Taco of the Month” promotion, and desserts include scratch-made churros made with buttermilk and dusted with sugar and cinnamon with a side of dulce de leche, and “lil’ nookies,” which are fried chocolate chip cookie dough topped with cherries.
The following information is shared on their website: “The ingredients make the meal. That’s why we responsibly and ethically source every single ingredient, down to the jalapeño. From there, we work hard to whip up the best damn tacos, cooked to order, just the way you like ’em. Torchy’s works with brands who share our commitment to quality.”
They also have an emphasis on sustainability and charity work: “Without the planet, we wouldn’t have tacos. Torchy’s thanks the environment by only stocking napkins, cups and cutlery made from 100% renewable resources. Even our used cooking oil is turned into fuel for cars. Torchy’s donates tacos, time, and resources to causes we’re passionate about. Whether it’s cancer research at MD Anderson, childhood enrichment at Make-A-Wish Foundation or addiction recovery at Phoenix House, we believe in leaving the world better than we found it. In fact, a portion of the proceeds from every Taco of the Month goes towards these causes. We don’t just focus our attention nationally, Torchy’s also looks locally. Each one of our stores is actively involved in helping the community around them.”
An opening date and exact location have not been announced yet, and What Now Phoenix reached out for comment, but did not immediately hear back.
