Talk about a ‘Taco Grande’: ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic ate at Torchy’s Tacos this week

We have proof that “Weird Al” Yankovic didn’t smell like Nirvana during his gig at Bass Concert Hall. In fact, he probably smelled like green chile queso.

Torchy’s Tacos tweeted a picture of the parody song grandmaster dining at their Guadalupe Street location around noon Tuesday.

We know it’s not on the menu, but we sincerely hope he ordered tacos al pastor. Or maybe something with “Spam” in it.

Yankovic is not the first esteemed dignitary to dine at the Austin fave, of course. President Barack Obama famously stopped at the South First Street location in March while he was in town for South by Southwest.

Point for us in the taco war with San Antonio. We wouldn’t be surprised if the Alamo City tried to get Flight of the Conchords or someone to swing down the highway now.
