The new store will be known as Torchy's Tacos at Mueller and will be the first outlet in the chain to be created in a previously undeveloped space. Torchy's owner Michael Rypka has made a great success of re-purposing existing restaurant spaces (Virginia's Cafe, Wok-n-Roll, Chango's South, etc.) into popular quick/casual taco joints. This new spot, however, will also be the largest and the first to offer full bar service.
Torchy's at Mueller is slated for a large corner space with plenty of room indoors for a full bar serving what Rypka calls the Firewater menu: a rotating selection of local craft beers on tap, wine, margaritas, and custom cocktails. Outdoors, there will be a large, oak-shaded deck with a view of Bartholomew Park. Look for the restaurant to open in the summer of 2014.
