On a recent trip down South College Avenue on Fort Collins over the weekend, a new store logo caught my attention at Foothills. And it made me HUNGRY!

Torchy's Tacos, which has been a staple chain in Texas for many years, is getting closer to completion of their new location in Fort Collins. With the impending opening, many people in Northern Colorado are ready to get "torched" by their food.

After having a chance to check out their website, it made me even hungrier to try out their food as soon as they open the doors for the first time.

Need some convincing on why Torchy's Tacos should be on your "must" list as soon as they become part of the Fort Collins landscape? Check out some of these items from their menu:

  • THE "TUK TUK" - MARINATED AND GRILLED THAI BEEF FAJITAS
    WITH COOKED CABBAGE SLAW, PICKLED CUCUMBERS & CARROTS, SRIRACHA, AVOCADO SAUCE, SHREDDED JACK CHEESE, AND LIME. GARNISHED WITH CRUSHED PEANUTS AND MINT. SERVED ON YOUR CHOICE OF TORTILLA.
  • THE "DIRTY SANCHEZ" - SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH A FRIED POBLANO CHILE, GUACAMOLE, ESCABECHE CARROTS AND SHREDDED CHEESE. SERVED WITH POBLANO SAUCE ON A FRESH FLOUR TORTILLA.
  • THE "FRIED AVOCADO" - HAND-BATTERED FRESH AVOCADOS FRIED AND
    SERVED WITH VEGETARIAN REFRIED BEANS, TOPPED WITH PICO, LETTUCE, & CHEESE. SERVED WITH POBLANO SAUCE ON A CORN TORTILLA.

And the menu has even much more to offer, but it's not too big to where you'll get confused after looking at the menu for a couple minutes.

There's no official word yet on when the Fort Collins Torchy's location will be opening. But if you want a "sneak preview", they do have their grand opening party at the new Denver Stapleton location on June 6th.
