Torchy’s Tacos is keeping up its expansion plans with a new location in Dripping Springs, as reported by Austin Business Journal. Joining the taco chain will be Violet Crown Cinema founders’ new movie theater with a similar concept, Sky Cinemas.

Sky Cinemas will include a beer garden, and theater with comfortable chairs, drinks, and food (like Violet Crown's setup). The development will include the usual residential space, hotel, and offices. There is no further information about the new Torchy’s. Eater has reached out; watch this space for updates.

Both will be found part of a new development within Belterra Village at Highway 290 and Nutty Brown Road. Joining the two will be Spec's, Orange Leaf, Baskin-Robbins, Dunkin' Donuts, Mama Fu's Asian House, and Jersey Mike's Subs.

This week, Torchy’s recently opened up in a brand new state, Oklahoma, the second out-of-Texas location after its first in Colorado earlier this year. Violet Crown opened in 2011, and expanded to Charlottesville, Virginia and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
