Construction looks to be complete for the west side Torchy’s Tacos that is planned for 2901 N. Maize next door to the west side HomeGrown.
I’ve had some readers asking what’ the current status is on the west side opening.
I have heard two conflicting reports. Someone from their corporate office have told me that they are looking for a Spring opening which could be anytime in the next few months. But a regional manager told me they are looking at June or July.
If I had to guess, the restaurant will probably open in May or June. The exterior is nearly complete with a patio facing the north end. Now the work will begin on the interior.
For those unfamiliar with Torchy’s Tacos, they started out as a food trailer in Austin, TX. Since then, they’ve grown to over 80 locations in the U.S. The closest locations are in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Edmond and Norman.
The east side Wichita location at 2191 N Rock Rd has brought on a debate on whether it’s worth it. It’s quite a polarizing restaurant that people have strong opinions on. If you’re on the fence, I’m always in the camp of “Find out for yourself if you like it. Don’t let others decide for you.”
