Weslayan Plaza announcement: Goodbye Chuck E., hello Torchy

Weslayan Plaza is going to lose a longtime family favorite, Chuck E. Cheese, but gain an outlet of the growing Torchy’s Taco chain, Instant News learned Monday (May 21).

 

A spokeswoman for Regency Centers said Torchy’s is poised to open in the east section of the plaza in summer of 2019. There was no immediate word about whether Chuck E. Cheese will relocate in the Bellaire-West U-southwest Houston area, but InstantNews has contacted the chain’s corporate media relations department for a comment.

 

UPDATE: A Chuck E. Cheese rep says the company will have no comment at this time, but Regency Centers has said the restaurant will close in September.

 

Torchy’s began in Austin. Its menu of non-traditional taco combinations and sides for breakfast, lunch and dinner has expanded successfully into 11 Texas cities, with 14 locations in the Houston area alone, including one in Rice Village. The chain also has multiple locations in Oklahoma and Colorado.

 

The new Torchy’s will be just a few doors down from the 30-year-old Weslayan Plaza family mainstay, Skeeter’s, which features tacos and other Tex-Mex and southwestern specialties but offers a broader menu.

Torchy’s in the Village doesn’t have a liquor license so they cannot serve margaritas.  Hopefully this one applies for the license!

A grand opening party will be held at the new location with free food, drinks and entertainment, representatives said. The event will be open to the public.

 

The West U location will have a full bar like several other Houston locations, representatives said.  The unique taco chain has 14 Houston locations, with plans for two other new restaurants located in Conroe and the Woodlands.

I like the red design.  You can see the small patio as well.

Hopefully they have a full liquor license like their River Oaks location.  The Village location doesn't serve margaritas for some reason.

Went to Torchy's tonight.  This place is busy!  Two drink menus.  Their margaritas are wonderful. They're a little sweet, maybe lime puree juice at the bottom.
