    Torchy’s Tacos announced its Richmond restaurant will officially open on Wednesday, July 21. Located at 4818 Waterview Town Center Drive, Suite 500, this marks Torchy’s 20th location in the Houston area and its 94th restaurant nationwide.  

    Torchy’s is celebrating the grand opening by offering the first 100 guests in line at 10 a.m. on July 21 a limited-edition Torchy’s Restaurant Opening T-Shirt, which will grant the lucky Taco Junkie a year of free half Green Chile Queso + Chips each time they wear their special shirt to the Richmond location.* 

    “While this is our first restaurant in Richmond, we know Texas—and we know what Houstonians love, as we’ve opened 20 restaurants in the area,” says G.J. Hart, CEO of Torchy’s Tacos. “We invite Richmond residents, Houstonians and nearby Fort Bend neighbors out to enjoy our breakfast tacos, queso, and made-to-order margaritas at our newest location.”

At Torchy’s, every taco, queso and margarita is hand-crafted and made-to-order.
