Torchy's Tacos

This native Austin joint is hip, delicious, and – most importantly – cheap. The recently redesigned Torchy's is the perfect place to show off your good taste in tacos (a very attractive feature). And there's plenty of discussion material for you and your date: What's the meaning of the Democrat being on a corn tortilla and the Republican on flour? Does the Fried Avocado prove that vegetarian tacos can ball just as hard? (Answer: Yes.) Be warned, though, the tacos are stuffed pretty well and spill over easily, so try not to be too messy of an eater. Unless she's into that.
