Torchy’s Tacos plans Fayetteville location


Torchy’s Tacos will soon open a location in Fayetteville.

The Austin-based chain this week received state health department approval for a new restaurant on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard next to Andy’s Frozen Custard.

Company officials did not respond to a request for confirmation of the new restaurant, but an update to the Torchy’s website today included Fayetteville as an upcoming location at 1561 W. MLK Jr. Blvd.

Launched from a food truck in Austin in 2006, Torchy’s Tacos has grown to include over 60 locations across Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado. Their menu features 15 unique lunch and dinner menu tacos, 11 breakfast menu tacos, and a variety of sides. Business Insider last month named Torchy’s the best chain in America.

The company is known for giving back to the communities where it does business. Each month a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Taco of the Month are donated to charitable partners. The January Taco of the Month is “Trailer Park Hillbilly Style,” which includes hand-battered fried chicken, chorizo, chopped bacon, green chiles, green chile queso, freshly grated cheddar jack cheese and pico de gallo with poblano sauce on a flour tortilla. Charitable partners for January include Make-A-Wish, MD Anderson, and Phoenix House.
