Our taco dreams have come true.
Torchy's Tacos on South First Street has announced that they will be giving out free tacos as part of their "Thank You Austin" celebration as they close down their "Trailer Park" location.
Torchy's will be giving out their four original tacos and their Green Chile Queso for free Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
“Without the love from the city of Austin, we would have never been able to make these taco dreams come true," said Michael Rypka, founder and vice president of marketing and culinary at Torchy’s Tacos. "To thank y’all for the years of support and countless tacos consumed, we’re revving up the Trailer for one last ride.”
What makes this bittersweet news even better is that Torchy's will donate $1 to the Texas School for the Deaf for each taco given away.
“The decision to close our Trailer Park location was not an easy one,” Rypka said. “We are proud of our humble beginnings and we will always stay true to running our business with the same entrepreneurial spirit we had in 2006. Reaching this point just proves that with passion, dedication, and a lil’ bit of taco magic, anything can happen. Our dreams of expansion were realized because the people of Austin embraced us with open arms. While the Trailer Park will be gone, our commitment to serving Damn Good Food will always live on."
In a statement posted on their Facebook page, Torchy's stated that they will also have live music, beer sampling and a variety of non-alcoholic beverages. For more information about this event, click here.
