Torchy’s Tacos opening new South Congress location on January 19

Almost a year to the day that Torchy’s joined Fran’s Hamburgers co-founder Fran Junk to hand out free tacos to announce the passing of the torch from one Austin icon to another, Torchy’s will open for business at 1822 S. Congress Ave. on January 19. The restaurant, which will have an outdoor patio and eventually feature a full bar, will be the flagship (and 12th Austin) location of the business started in a little trailer on South First Street by Mike Rypka.
