Looks like Houston will be getting some of my favorite Austin spots in the next few weeks. CultureMap reports that we will soon be getting a Torchy's Tacos, Tiff's Treats, and as we all know, Uchi. I'm pretty excited about Torchy's as I haven't exactly found my go to cheap, laid back, Mexican lunch spot yet.
First rumored to arrive this summer, then in October and now set for November, Uchi is said to be taking over the old Felix's, and I can barely wait another day.
Already in Dallas and Austin, Tiff's closed the details on funding to open five new locations in Houston in 2012. Hopefully somewhere near me!
Definitely opening up in my neighborhood is Torchy's. They are taking the spot of short-lived Gratefull Taco at Shepherd and Fairview. They should be open in less than three months!
