Texas’ Torchy’s Tacos Coming to Fort Collins: FREE TACOS
First, there was Fuzzy's, then Illegal Pete's. Now, another Tex-Mex restaurant is popping up on College Avenue in the new Foothills Mall.
Torchy's Taco's was founded in Austin, and originally was only within the state of Texas. According to the website, Torchy's started out as a failing taco trailer ten years ago, and found success through founder Michael Rypka's 'famous' salsa. (See the full [inspiring] story here.)
The taco chain has expanded to Oklahoma and recently Denver, and now one location will also call Fort Collins 'home,' too.
Looking at the menu, I am getting pretty excited about this addition to my I-haven't-grocery shopped-in-weeks list of options. The grand opening party will be on Monday, September 19, from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m., and word has it there will be free tacos, drinks and giveaways.
Official opening date is September 20.
