story.lead_photo.caption FILE — 2 pork tacos from Torchy's Tacos in Austin, Texas are shown in this file photo.

Torchy's Tacos says it plans to open its first Arkansas location next month.

The Tex-Mex chain, which already operates restaurants in Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma, says it will open on Aug. 7 at 1541 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Fayetteville, which is near the University of Arkansas campus.

An opening party is set for 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Aug. 5.

Hours are 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday. The Fayetteville restaurant will be the chain's 65th location in the United States, but the the first to serve weekend brunch, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday-Sunday.

Torchy's is also planning a location in Rogers on West Pauline Whitaker Parkway south of the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion. That restaurant is expected to open by November, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported last month.

The restaurant's website doesn't list any other planned locations in Arkansas.

    Awesome. An Austin institution comes to Fayetteville. They already have Whataburger. I think this is to satisfy the Texas transplants.

    There is a Rogers location listed on the website. Gonna need a Little Rock location though.

    I dont know what a 15th flavor of taco will do for Arkansas...
    I'm with Mr.Charles, Braums is a great example of what we could see some more of.

    Whataburger sucks. Much better flavored burgers at David’s Burgers. And do we really need another Tex Mex or taco place? Plenty of options for taste between Chuy’s and Tacos 4 Life.
