Austin-based Torchy's Tacos launched its second The Woodlands restaurant Oct. 9. The new Torchy's opened at 1555 Lake Woodlands Drive, near The Woodlands Mall, following a grand opening party Oct. 7.

"When this amazing space became available, we knew it was the perfect spot to serve up more Damn Good tacos to The Woodlands community," Torchy’s Tacos CEO G.J. Hart said in a September statement. "There’s nothing better than a made-to-order margarita and an order of chips and Green Chile Queso after a long day of shopping."

The new Torchy's includes 5,200 square feet of indoor and patio dining space along with a bar serving beer, margaritas and cocktails. Torchy's food offerings include its signature slate of tacos, salads, sides and desserts. Following the opening of The Woodlands Mall eatery—Torchy's 56th location in Texas—the chain also plans to add two more Houston-area restaurants in Memorial and the Galleria. 346-413-2501.
