After temporarily shutting down in late October 2019 to begin renovations, Torchy’s Tacos at Rice Village, at 2400 Times Blvd., Houston, will open on Wednesday, March 18, a spokesman for the company confirmed in an email.
The remodeled fast casual taco restaurant will sell its usual offerings when it reopens, but inside a larger and revamped dining room, along with a new full bar.
During the reopen day, from 3-8 p.m., guests dining in can enjoy $2 half orders of chips and queso and $2 draft beers. Also, the first 100 people will receive free Torchy’s swag. 713-487-0067. www.torchystacos.com/location/rice-village
