On August 7, local foodies will get their chance to try out the first Torchy’s Tacos in Arkansas.
The Austin-based taco chain is opening its restaurant in Fayetteville close to the University of Arkansas campus. The restaurant is located at 1541 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
The new restaurant will be roughly 4,500 square feet and feature an outdoor patio. It will also offer catering.
“The Fayetteville market has been on our development radar for some time and we are very excited to bring our Damn Good Tacos to Arkansas,” said G.J Hart, CEO of Torchy’s Tacos.
Since its founding in 2006, Torchy’s Tacos has grown to more than 60 locations. The Fayetteville location is the chain’s 65threstaurant.
There will be a grand opening on Monday, August 5, from 5-8 p.m.
Torchy’s is planning to open a second Arkansas location in Rogers in late 2019.
