Torchy's Tacos (sit down, south of Oltorf)

Went today and sampled four tacos (fried avocado, Baja shrimp, The Republican and the fajita beef). All the tacos were large but let us unsatisfied. The fried avocado was better in concept than reality. The refried beans really detracted from the concept and flavor. The baja shrimp were also disappointing, no flavor other than the tasty salsa that I had to steal from my dining companion. The creamy chipotle sauce my taco came with was sweet and not quite right (kinda like creamy bbq). As for the other tacos, the fajita beef had too large of chunks of meat and were not quite tender enough. The corn tortillas were stock and tough.

The only thing that was great was the green chile queso. Whether it is purist queso, I will leave others to debate, but it was loaded with cilantro and yummy. It also has a scoop of quac for some more creaminess. Thoughts on good things to order or your experiences? The crowd was large so don't know if I missed something amazing...
