Texas Taco Shop Opening First Arkansas Location


Torchy’s Tacos will soon open their first Arkansas restaurant on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Fayetteville.

The Texas-based taco shop’s website cites the new location will be at 1561 W MLK Blvd., beside Andy’s Frozen Custard. The company recently received state health department approval for the restaurant.

The restaurant has yet to announce an opening date.

Torchy’s, which began as a food trailer by chef Mike Rypka in Austin, Texas, is known for unique tacos, chips and queso. The company is also known for giving back to the communities where it does business. Each month a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Taco of the Month are donated to charitable partners.
