Torchy’s Tacos is planning to open its first downtown Austin location, according to a post on Eater Austin. Eater points to the city’s website, which indicates that a project titled Torchy’s – North Shore has applied for permits.  The proposed Torchy’s will be located at 110 San Antonio St. Unit 120, in the Northshore Austin luxury apartment building that is also home to ATX Cocina and Le Politique. We have reached out to a rep from Torchy’s for more information.

Torchy’s, which opened in 2006 as a trailer on South First Street, closed its original location earlier this year after taking on significant investment money in 2017.
