Like the food truck turned restaurant, the Torchy’s secret menu has become quite popular in recent years. If you’re lucky enough to live in a southern state that has a Torchy’s Tacos location, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of at least one of these secret menu items.

Torchy's Secret Menu: Take Tacos to a Whole New Level

The cool thing about this “hidden” menu is that most employees know how to make these tacos by name, making them really easy to order.

Here’s how their secret menu currently breaks down, hope it helps you find your next favorite taco.

Torchy’s Secret Menu:

1. Mad Cow

Strange item given the disease with the same name. But wow, does it sounds yummy.

Order The Mad Cow and get a taco filled with fajita steak, black beans, jack cheese, grilled corn, cilantro and creamy chipotle sauce.

Throw it all on a warm flour tortilla and you’ll be one happy taco.

2. Trailer Park Hillbilly Style

Best name ever for a taco.

The Trailer Park Hillbilly Style comes with fried chicken (of course), chorizo, green chilies, chopped bacon, green chile queso, shredded cheese, pico de gallo, poblano ranch on the side for dipping.

In case you were wondering, the poblano ranch sauce is a creamy ranch dressing with serrano and grilled poblano peppers blended in.

All served on a warm tortilla base.

3. Trashy Trailer Park

Order this concoction and you’ll get the Trailer Park taco but instead of the lettuce, you’ll get queso.

Who needs roughage anyways, right?

Think of it like a deliciously beautiful sloppy taco mess, hence the name.

4. Jack of Clubs

This is a breakfast taco that will fulfill any hunger.

Order the Jack of Clubs and get a flour tortilla filled with a fried egg, fried potatoes, black beans, corn tortilla strips, cilantro, shredded cheese, sour cream and some diablo sauce.

The diablo sauce consists of fire-roasted habanero chiles mixed with vinegar, tomatoes, and spices. NOT for the timid.

Not sure why it’s called the Jack of Clubs but it sounds dang good.

5. The Hipster

Turns out Torchy’s is not a hipster-free zone but requires you like tuna.

Order The Hipster and get Panko fried tuna, green chilies, chopped bacon, black bean relish, cotija cheese, avocado sauce, cilantro, and a wedge of lime for squeezing.

Like any good hipster taco you had me at bacon.

6. Ace of Spades

Kinda buried the lead by putting the Ace of Spades down here in my list of secret menu items.

Easily one of their most popular “secret” items, this bad boy is an explosion of flavor in your mouth.

Order it and you’ll get a warm flour tortilla filled with a jalapeno sausage link split down the middle and grilled.

They’ll then throw on some grilled brisket, a fried egg, green chile queso, cilantro, cotija cheese, sour cream and diablo sauce.

Wow, a lot going on in this taco, guessing you’ll need to eat it with a knife and fork.

7. The Matador

Ole! Ole!

Order The Matador and get piled-high smoked brisket, grilled jalapenos, pickled onions, jack cheese, avocado, sour cream and cilantro.

It also comes with tomatillo sauce for pouring on top and a crisp corn tortilla inside of a flour tortilla.

Think of it like the double wrapped taco that Taco Bell made famous years ago.

8. Green Chile Pork Missionary Style

By far the longest named secret menu item ever created, this beauty has an amazing flavor profile.

Order this sucker and score green chile pork, pickled onions, jack cheese, guacamole, cilantro, and creamy chipotle to boot.

This one also come in a crisp corn tortilla inside of a flour tortilla.
