Fran’s Legacy to Live On with Torchy’s Flagship

Join us as we pay tribute to an Austin institution. After 40 years of business on South Congress, Fran’s Hamburgers closed its doors in April 2013. The family owners of the beloved burger joint opted not to renew their lease.

Torchy’s is honored to be successor to the iconic lot, and we know we’ve got big shoes to fill! Originally slated for an early 2015 opening, the new Torchy’s Tacos location at 1822 South Congress Ave. has been delayed. Construction begins soon! But not before we pay homage to a slice of Austin history:
