1. Torchy's Tacos 1311 S 1st St, Austin, TX 78704 (South Austin)

The sign says “Torchy’s Damn Good Tacos,” President Obama stopped his motorcade for them, and Torchy’s has gone from a lone food truck in Austin to 30 locations across Texas and Colorado in a decade. Believe the hype, Torchy’s tacos really are damn good. Breakfast tacos are served all day (the Migas is objectively the best, just saying), and lunch tacos are outside the realm of your standard taco joint, with unexpected ingredients and flavor combinations, like the Trailer Park with fried chicken, green chiles, and poblano sauce (get it “trashy” with queso). Do as the locals do and wait in line, it’s worth it… don’t trust me, trust President Obama.
