Thread: Torchy's v Freebirds

  1. #1

    Torchy's v Freebirds

    OK, taco and burrito fans. I would like to hear your opinion....not just on taste/food...but on serving style also.

    1. Do you like the "walk down the line" Freebirds style of watching your food being made or the order at the counter and they bring it to you or you go get it method?

    2. From a taste perspective, tell me which one you prefer and why?

    Doing some taco/burrito research.

    well, false. taco deli is fantastic and all, but torchy's is nowhere near $#@!, even compared to taco deli. the very thought that torchy's is "not good" should get you banned from gm steakhouse.

    This is where I am as well. I love Tacodeli. If forced to choose, I'd pick it over Torchy's. But that doesn't make Torchy's bad, when actually it's quite good.

    I think I'm confused by the OP's comparison. Other than being served in a tortilla, there just isn't much similarity between the food at Freebird's, and the food at Torchy's.

    A better question would have been Torchys vs. Freebirds circa 1998.

    Haven't had freebirds in a while, but pretty much think you can't go wrong with either.

    Nothing at freebirds compares to torchy's diablo sauce though.

    1. I have no preference for one style over the other.

    2. Torchy's is tastier. Freebird's is heartier. They each have their time and place. If I had to choose one over the other I'd go Torchy's because they have greater variety.

    Really comparing apples and oranges here. Or in this case tacos and burritos.

  24. #24
    Yeah I was just coming to say torchys vs taco deli, or freebirds vs cabo bobs would be better comparisons.

    And I like all of em, but I'd give the edge to taco deli and cabo bobs.

    Taco Deli is significantly better than Torchy's.

    Papalote is significantly better than pretty much everything.

    The end.

    Freebirds is comparable to chipotle. The same way Torchys is comparable to Taco Deli.

    Plus, Chipotle is $#@!ing expensive as hell.

    Tochy's > Chipotle > Freebird's

    I think all in all Torchy's just has the best quality at a fair price point.

    The reason I prefer Chipotle over Freebird's is mainly because Chipotle has high enough volume that everything is very fresh. It's not uncommon that I have to wait a minute or two for something to cut up the skirt steak or make more rice. When I'm going through the Freebird's line and there's a vlat of rice that looks like it's been there for several hours with a crusty layer on top, I'm less enthused.

    This is correct.

    To question 1, I have no opinion on watching my food being made versus brought to me. But, to the second, from a taste perspective, I would pick almost anywhere you could name over Freebird's

    i like them both for different reasons.

    Freebirds is about volume.. you skipped lunch, it's dinner time, you got $8 in your pocket and your friggin' starving. You are going to destroy that burrito.

    Torchy's is better quality and you are going to savor every bite, but for $8 (2 tacos) you are going to be hungry 3 hours later.

    just depends on what i am in the mood for.

    they are the same damn price give or take $.50. can get a burrito w/ guac and large drink for $9 and change at chipotle. monster w/ guac and large dr. p is almost the exact same price. (been about 6 weeks since i went to freebirds, had chipotle about 2 weeks ago, so the memory is a bit sharper on that one)

    cabo bobs >>> chipotle > freebirds

    taco deli > torchy's - taco tacos
    torchy's > taco deli - breakfast tacos

    I like Freebirds, because Aggy thinks it started in College Station, but it really started in California, and it crushes Aggy's world when it learns the truth.

    I miss late 90's Changos burritos with some agua fresca.

    Torchy's > Freebirds.

    I like them both. what are the common denominators that make comparing the two a valid question?

    Lately I've been preferring Changos over Torchy's though. I forgot what it was like to have actual mexicans making tacos. IMO, they should get more run than Torchy's.

    This is pretty much how I view Torchy's and Taco Deli. My preference is Taco Deli, but if you can't get a good meal at Torchy's, then your opinion on tacos is worthless to me.

    If I want Mexicans to make my taco I'll go to Habanero

    There are two places that I've been that are hyped beyond comprehension... and are even better than advertised -- Torchy's and Homeslice.

    To be fair, I've never been to Franklin.
