    Torchy’s Tacos, the popular craft fast-casual taco brand, is growing in Kansas with the announcement of its newest restaurant opening in West Wichita on Wednesday, July 28. Located at 2901 North Maize Road, the opening marks the restaurant’s second location in the Wichita area and fifth location in Kansas. Torchy’s first Wichita restaurant opened on North Rock Road  in Sept. 2020.

    Torchy’s is celebrating the grand opening by offering the first 100 guests in line at 10 a.m. on opening day a limited-edition Torchy’s Restaurant Opening T-Shirt, which will grant the lucky Taco Junkie a year of Free Queso each time they wear their special shirt to the West Wichita location.

    "We’re thrilled to continue growing in the Midwest and sharing our Damn Good tacos with more Kansans, all thanks to the terrific support of our Torchy’s fans,” says G.J. Hart, CEO of Torchy’s Tacos. “Whether you prefer to relax on our patio or eat in the dining room, our West Wichita location offers the community the perfect spot to enjoy Damn Good tacos, made-to-order margaritas and some warm Texas hospitality!” 

    Guests can enjoy delicious options like the Crossroads and Baja Shrimp tacos and Torchy’s famed Green Chile Queso in the 4,000-square-foot space. The West Wichita restaurant will also feature an outdoor patio where guests can enjoy draft beer, fresh-made margaritas and other signature cocktails. In addition to dine-in service, the restaurant features a drive-thru that will serve breakfast tacos, a Texas staple, from 7-10 a.m., followed by the restaurant’s lunch and dinner menu full of Damn Good Tacos and more. At Torchy’s, every taco, queso and margarita is hand-crafted and made-to-order.
