It's been great to go to Torchy's new East Austin location in the Mueller neighborhood.  It's a big restaurant with a lot of seating located on the corner of Berkman & 51st.  It's got a couple of full bars and a huge outside patio to hang out on as well.  It gets pretty busy at peak breakfast/lunch/dinner times, but the line moves quickly...although it doesn't hurt to grab a beer at the bar to have while you wait! The pricing is fairly affordable too, which is a nice break from what seems like an overall price increase in the Austin restaurant scene lately.

Here's a list of the tacos available on the secret menu aka the 'Sacred Menu' (thanks KUT & Reddit user deathtocedars!).

Secret Menu

  • Missionary-Style Green Chili Pork: carnitas, pickled onions, guacamole, jack cheese and cilantro, topped with chipotle sauce and wrapped in a flour and corn two-tortilla tandem.
  • Jack of Clubs: fried egg and grilled potatoes with black beans, tortilla strips and cheese; all topped with cilantro, sour cream and Torchy’s Diablo sauce.
  • The Hipster: panko-breaded fried tuna, with bacon, green chilies, and black beans; topped with cilantro and cotija cheese, and served on a flour tortilla with avocado sauce.
  • The Mad Cow: skirt steak with black beans and corn; topped with jack cheese, cilantro and ranch.
  • Trailer Park Hillbilly Style: Torchy’s gauche standby is made even trashier with chorizo and chopped bacon atop the usual fried chicken tender with green chilies, queso and ranch, served on a flour tortilla.
  • Ace of Spades: Jalapeno sausage link and grilled brisket topped with a fried egg, green chile queso, cotija cheese, sour cream, more cheese and Diablo sauce, served on a flour tortilla.
  • The Matador: Chopped brisket and grilled jalapeno topped with pickled onions, jack cheese, avocado, sour cream and cilantro with tomatillo sauce on a corn tortilla.

I love the Jack of Clubs...probably my favorite breakfast taco right now...you just can't beat the runny yolk & diablo sauce combo on this one!

Torchy's also just moved their headquarters over to Springdale Rd., between 51st & MLK. It's a great business addition to the eastside!
