'Some Like It Hot' at Torchy’s Tacos

Wednesday, August 8, 2018

Torchy’s Tacos, the popular taco chain, announced the launch of thier fifth annual Some Like It Hot August Taco of the Month campaign. 

While Torchy’s features a special Taco of the Month every month of the year, each August they up the ante with a smoking lineup of four seriously hot and "damn good tacos."

Each week, Torchy’s will unveil a brand-new taco that tips the Scoville scale and tests the limits of the taste buds, each new taco spicier than the last. By the end of the month, those brave enough to face their fears – while holding back tears – will be able to order all four fiery tacos, washing it down with Torchy’s signature Frozen Paloma to soothe the body and soul. Visit your local Torchy’s throughout the month of August to experience a different taco each week through Aug. 31.

“This is our fifth year offering the Some Like It Hot special menu tacos to all our locations across Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado,” Mike Rypka, chairman and founder of Torchy’s Tacos, said. “I hope our guests are feeling brave enough to come back to test their limits not once, not twice, but four times all month long.”

Each Torchy’s location will display four movie-style posters, one for each of the unique tacos, that mirror well-known classic flicks to match the vibe of the tacos. Every guest who dares to order a Some Like It Hot taco will get their own collectible sticker version of the soon-to-be iconic art.

Torchy's Tacos started in 2006 with a mobile trailer, a little red Vespa and a man with a passion for good food. Now, Torchy's Tacos operates over 50 locations throughout Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma.
