Nope.

Torchy's is great.  When I lived in Austin the Torchy's on South First was next to a cake / ice cream food truck where they would mix ice cream and cake in a blender and make a cake cream smoothie.  It probably had 3,500 calories per serving. 

I kind of wish it was going downtown, but at the same time I do like this almost-all-local thing we have going on in the entertainment districts.

You are gonna LOVE Torchy's!!!

There is one in Moore that I get to go to on occasion - very good occasions!


Oh, and Dunkin' Donuts is coming... heard that again, so went there Monday while I was in the neighborhood, and got some donuts just to celebrate!!

Saw that.  I hope it works, that location seems to have the kiss of death.

If Torchy's fails, the location is officially cursed.  Torchy's is awesome.

I keep hearing this location is cursed.  Could someone explain that reasoning?

If I understand it, Delta Cafe's lease wasn't renewed so that Wolfgang could move in.
Wolfgang apparently did well, but was mismanaged?
Hop Bunz' overpriced meh-burgers with poor service would have failed anywhere.

I agree.

I can't speak to Wolfgang, but for Hop Bunz I heard mixed reviews and I never really wanted to go out of my way to support them as the idea was a knockoff of the delicious HopDoddy in Austin (lawsuit - http://kxan.com/2015/03/25/hopdoddy-sues-hop-bunz-for-copying-their-restaurant/). Also, I kept hearing that the prices were fairly high for a burger, but they were not great and not as good as HopDoddy, so I never really cared to go.

On the other hand, I love Torchy's. They have creative tacos, and they have great breakfast tacos as well. Tulsa needs breakfast tacos (also, check out T-Town Tacos for breakfast Tacos downtown, the proceeds go to a great cause)!

Basically, I never cared to go to Hop Bunz, but I can't wait to go to Torchy's. I know I don't speak for everyone, but I don't think that I am alone here.

Hopefully the new Torchy's works out.  The bad thing about that spot is how big it is.  Landlords are trying to get a maximum per square foot on their properties.  Margins for restaurants are already thin.  If someplace has a huge footprint, but isn't turning over tables every night, it's going to have a hard time making it.  If Torchy's doesn't work out, I would hope there would be some thought to at least splitting up the building so two restaurants could go in.

Also, might be time to change the title of this thread or start a new one....

I went a few times. It was okay.

Just saw it was another James Blacketer joint. He basically bought out a failing Atomic Burrito in Tulsa, did passable for a couple years, then sold them to a Qdoba franchisee. Used the money to start a horrible Los Cabos at 71st & Garnett which lasted a couple of months, then rebooted the name in Jenks and BA to seemingly decent success. Waterfront Grill is also his.

Was in the area, so stopped at Moore location again this morning!  Yum!   Not a fan of the rest of their food...just donuts!

Probably good they are not in Tulsa area - would be there every morning, between Tulsa, BA, and Moore...
