Torchy's Tacos's new South Congress location will transform the former Fran's Hamburgers space into a crazy taco wonderland. The locally grown taco chain's move to South Congress was reported in April, and now they've unveiled renderings of the site. Community Impact reports that the new space "will feature a dining room, full bar and sidewalk seating" and will function as a "flagship" for the ever-expanding brand.
The Chronicle talks with owner Mike Rypka, who says the South Congress location offered a chance to add a full bar, as well as great visibility. The taco empire began with a trailer on nearby South First, which is still in operation. Torchy's South Congress should be open by SXSW 2015.
