Torchy's Tacos will celebrate the launch of its first restaurant in The Woodlands with a grand opening party Oct. 7, followed by its official opening Oct. 9. The eatery is located near The Woodlands Mall at 1555 Lake Woodlands Drive, Ste. 435, in a space formerly occupied by Bonefish Grill.

“When this amazing space became available, we knew it was the perfect spot to serve up more Damn Good tacos to The Woodlands community,” said G.J. Hart, Torchy’s Tacos chief executive officer, 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 Austin-based Tex-Mex chain operates dozens of locations throughout Colorado, Oklahoma and Texas serving tacos, burritos, side dishes and salad alongside drinks, including featured margaritas, cocktails, beer and wine. Torchy's in The Woodlands will be the chain's 56th Texas location and 15th in Houston. Torchy's also is also planning for future restaurant openings in the Memorial area and the Galleria.
