Torchy’s Tacos

801 S 5th St, Waco, 76706-1109, TX

This beloved Texas taco chain is beloved for its irreverent street food-style menu, which includes tacos named for political parties and a generous amount of queso, the unofficial condiment of Texas (for a whole lot of queso, order your taco “trashy style” and they’ll skip the lettuce and pour on the yellow stuff).

A kids’ menu includes hot dogs and stripped-down taco and quesadilla options, and there’s an outdoor seating area with picnic tables that’s ideal for families with squirmy little ones.
