Priscilla Y., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Dec. 18, wrote, "New Torchy's alert! Conveniently located next to the San Felipe H-E-B, this one is gonna be a frequent lunch spot! ... I had no issues with my usual take out order. Food quality was the same (if not better) than other Torchy's."

Yelper David G. added, "I'm giving this location a 5 since they serve margaritas! Breakfast tacos — go for the Monk Special and/or The Wrangler. Regular tacos — still working my way through the menu but so far, can't go wrong with Trailer Park, Dirty Sanchez, Democrat, Republican, Crossroads or Brushfire."
