Torchy's Tacos

Torchy's Tacos is an Austin thing. And the message has gotten out, because on a recent visit to the newish outpost at Rosedale and Forest Park here in Fort Worth, I spotted a higher concentration of hipsters than one usually finds in Cowtown, along with some bleary-eyed travelers from a nearby hotel. Vegetarians who get bored with beans-and-rice taco joints will appreciate the chain's inventive offerings, like a corn tortilla stuffed with breaded and fried avocado, beans, and poblano-ranch sauce, or The Independent, a saucy concoction with fried portobello, roasted corn, queso fresco, and ancho aioli. The breakfast tacos and green chile queso look tempting, too. 20130304-170400.jpg
