"...But can too many taco restaurants coexist on one street? Burnet Road, specifically the mile-long stretch between 40th and North Loop, makes a good case study. Torchy's Tacos, Tacodeli, Taco Flats, and two Taco Shacks reside along Bur-Ro, all within 10 blocks of Fork & Taco..."
"...The Tesla coils were warming up, tiny, smokelike wisps of light reaching toward an electric guitar hanging from the ceiling.

"...• Stow Your Weapons: What do the Alamo Drafthouse, Regal Cinemas, Chuy's Mexican restaurants, HEB grocery stores, Torchy's Tacos, and Whataburger have in common? They are among the dozens of commercial establishments that have confirmed they will not allow "open carry" of firearms in their stores, following the January 1 effective date of the Legislature's general permission of more visible guns in Texas. According to the Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, "Dozens of businesses, including thousands of locations across the state, will be exercising their right to prohibit individuals from openly carrying guns in their establishments..."
"...Austin's not just a hotbed of talented independent chefs and artisan pitmasters, it's also proven to be a reliable incubator for homegrown restaurant chains.

"...Usually when we hear about restaurant business lawsuits, they revolve around disputes over names and trademarks, but the lawsuit the Torchy's Tacos folks have filed in Houston is somewhat different. Most everyone in Austin is familiar with Torchy's Tacos; chef Michael Rypka's homegrown business started with one food truck in 2006 and has now grown to 20 brick-and-mortar outlets in Austin, Fort Worth, Dallas, and Houston, with more on the way next year..."
