This Texas import continued its crusade into Colorado throughout 2016, and opinions about it grew as quickly as the lines out the door. It's a big, loud, flamboyant and insanely popular spot, so people love it or hate it with an intensity that matches its dazzling sign, which lights up the night like a marquee. First things first: Torchy's isn't Mexican food. It isn't even Den-Mex. It's Tex-Mex through and through, so if you're looking for a taste of something south of the (national) border, you won't find it here. What you will find is gut-bustingly huge tacos, served on flour tortillas stuffed with fillings such as scrambled eggs (nine versions of Austin's famed breakfast tacos are on offer), brisket and fried chicken. Though corn tortillas are an option, embrace your inner Texan and opt for the flour — and don't miss the excellent guacamole.
