Torchy’s Tacos, the popular Austin-based craft casual taco brand, announced the July Taco of the Month: the Prawn Star. Making its Torchy’s debut, the Prawn Star is sure to be the can’t-miss hit of the summer.

Starring refreshing coconut lime shrimp ceviche with fresh mango, avocado and cilantro all on top of a crispy tandem tortilla (corn and flour) with melted jack cheese, the Prawn Star delivers the type of flavor most people would pay double for. Luckily for taco junkies, Torchy’s is offering this Taco of the Month for only $5.50.

“We’re excited to reveal a never-before-seen Taco of the Month that’s perfect for hot summer days,” says Mike Rypka, founder of Torchy’s Tacos. “With a mix of unique flavor combinations, including cool and refreshing coconut lime shrimp ceviche and fresh summer flavors like mango and avocado, the Prawn Star reflects the dedication we have to innovation and incorporating fresh ingredients in everything we make.”

The perfect co-star for the July Taco of the Month? A cold Michelada, Torchy’s Tini or Torchy’s Paloma from Torchy’s bar. Beat the heat this summer and enjoy $1.50 off all bottled and draft beer and $2 off all margaritas and Damn Good Drinks during Torchy’s Happy Hour weekdays from 3-6 p.m.

Guests are invited to satisfy their taco cravings with safe dine-in service, convenient takeout and curbside pickup with the option to order and pre-pay online at, and contactless delivery via DoorDash. Torchy’s has taken a measured approach to reopening dining rooms, and as the brand’s priority is the safety of guests and team members, it is reopening with several important safety measures in place.
