Tornado Taco was established in 2002 in Missouri City, Texas in a small, 600 square foot building with a drive-thru. It has since become a local institution in the area, commonly called Quail Valley. About 8 years ago, a sister company called Tornado Burger was established, just a mile up the road in Stafford. By now, that has also become a local institution with a great following!
The Spring Branch store began its life as a Tornado Burger, in an old fire-ravaged building that was completely gutted and rebuilt: because of the popularity of Breakfast Tacos, the name was changed to Tornado Taco, and both menus were offered. That caused slowdowns, and although business was brisk, the complexity of the menu meant something had to give.
The new menu is strictly foods of the Mexican genre. The menu is well organized and created with freshness and speed of service in mind. With online ordering now available, Tornado Taco will no doubt be the favorite of local offices and homes alike: no one in both areas can compete with the quality, speed of service, and the fresh, wholesome nature of menu offerings.
The best barbacoa tacos in all of Spring Branch
Eating barbacoa tacos on Sunday morning’s with the family is one of my favorite memories of childhood and one that I plan to keep on going as I grow my family.
For years, it was a struggle to find good tacos and great service in Spring Branch. I know, there are a lot of taco shops in the area but having personally been to just about all of them, Tornado Tacos wins with quality food and great customer service.
