Where can you find some “Damn Good Tacos” in Phoenix? Short answer: Torchy’s Tacos. The Austin-based chain announced earlier this year that they will make their Arizona debut with the intention of creating “Taco Junkies” out of Phoenicians.
It might not be too hard to accomplish given their made to order menu items and their Taco of the Month. April’s is the “Tokyo Drifter,” which features teriyaki glazed pulled pork, fried wonton strips, sweet and sour veggie slaw, and sesame sriracha mayo.
They have two locations under construction in Phoenix and apparently, sights are already set on the East Valley. What Now Phoenix has obtained real estate intel suggesting that Torchy’s Tacos will be coming to Queen Creek at 21202 S. Ellsworth Loop Road. A lease was recently signed on a 4,441 square-foot retail space at the Queen Creek Marketplace.
Representatives for Torchy’s Tacos have not responded to requests for comment, so there is yet to be a confirmed opening. That said, ABC15 Arizona reports that a Gilbert location has been confirmed for 2023, so it’s possible that the supposed Queen Creek store would open around the same time.
Until then, look out for Torchy’s Tacos this summer in Phoenix. They will be located at 1935 E. Camelback Road off State Route 51, plus 10625 N. Tatum Blvd. off Shea Boulevard.
