Several months ago, my friend and I were on a road trip and stopped at a Torchy’s Tacos in College Station (Texas). This particular friend is so sweet and thoughtful. I ask myself why she’s my friend . . why does she even like me because I’m not so sweet and thoughtful but I like her a lot! Anyway, she had eaten at Torchy’s before and she suggested we stop there. She’s one who’s always concerned about what others think. I’m not like that . . but you already know that! She was concerned that I might not like it. You would think it wouldn’t take spending much time with me to know that I’ll eat most everything except red sauce (spaghetti, pizza) and Chinese buffet.
So, we ate at Torchy’s and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.
Vince and I have a road trip coming up and here’s the conversation I had with Vince . . because there’s a Torchy’s in Waco and in Tyler, Texas.
Me: If we leave here at 7 a.m., what time will we be in Waco?
Vince: 9 a.m.
Me: Is that too early for a taco?
Me: So . . I guess if we leave at 8 a.m., we would be there at 10 a.m. Would that be too early for a taco?
Vince: Do you even know what time they open?
Me: No. But, would Tyler, Texas be too far out of the way? Because there’s a Torchy’s there too.
Vince: How far out of the way is Tyler?
Me: It would only add 2-1/2 hours to the trip.
Vince: NO!! Not for a taco!
He’s never had Torchy’s or he would do it. But you’re probably getting the idea why Vince and I take so few road trips together. I see no problem with going 2.5 hours out of the way for a good taco, nor do I have a problem eating a taco at 9 a.m. Vince cannot even believe I think that’s ok. I can’t believe he wouldn’t do it.
The good news is . . they have breakfast tacos and they look pretty darned good. Going to the Torchy’s in Waco won’t add much time to our trip. We kinda pass right around Waco and Torchy’s is a bit on the outside of Waco and on our side.
I am looking so forward to getting to eat there.
