    Great selection of food and drinks. The Mexican martini yielded 3-4 servings in a martini glass. Borracho beans are excellent with bacon as a side. I preferred the green salsa over the red one.

    Try the Tingua Suiza Relleno - Delicious tinga (shredded meat with savory sauce) in chile relleno covered with suiza (creamy queso). Don't think of the calories-- just enjoy!!

    Get the pastor fajitas. There is an option for a 1.5 order. Perfect for two. The pork is cooked perfectly; and comes with onions, peppers and pineapple. Yum!

    Trudy's is always consistent. There are many delicious items on the menu. The Pastor (pork) Fajitas are my favorite! Managers and staff are seasoned professionals.

    Barbara Shallue of Long Hollow blog said Trudy’s is the best of Austin Tex-Mex. “Everything I’ve tried is yummy, but they’re famous for the stuffed avocado, and their Mexican martinis are amazing”.

    Most people don't know this, but in addition to having an awesome normal menu, Trudy's offers an AMAZING buffet brunch on Sunday until 2PM... Migas, Waffles, Omelette's, ALL YOU CAN EAT BACON!

    Parking can get rough during peak hours, but the food is great! Enchiladas don't taste fake & the stuffed avocado is amazing!

    Migas, brunch waffles, fish tacos, suiza smoked chicken enchiladas, queso especial, margaritas, flan, martinis. Still favorites. Service can be spotty, parking is worse. Go at off times.

    Great margaritas - always a generous "pour." Also love the chile rellenos- try smoked chicken and cheese with suiza sauce

    The mojitos are made with fresh muddled mint and simple syrup...not a mix. Cuban style and I was riding high all night

    You know what's surprisingly DELICIOUS?!? That Gorgonzola Cream salad dressing. Touch of tarragon. A little goes a long way. Fantastic!

    Love the 4 dollar house margaritas. Perfect way to cool off during the summer while getting some cheap tex mex nomz.

    Much better atmosphere than the campus location! More spacious and not as noisy so your conversations don't need to include shouting and repeatedly asking "what?"

    The house Margarita's are the same as the house Mexican martini except they are cheaper and can have more :)

    New on the menu are the Tinga Queso Verdes enchiladas. Do yourself a solid and order some. You can thank me later.

    Beware....they cut you off at 2 Mexican martinis and they aren't even strong. So just buy a couple of beers and a couple of shots and get a better buzz.

    Mexican martini & street corn make a great dinner when you want a lot of flavor and a lot of booze. Yum.

    The fried avocado entree is a bit off on it's chicken to avocado ratio but the mini avocados are perfect.

    If you want to sweeten a local favorite, order the Mexican martini with sugar on the rim.

    This place has really lost something... It's like the restaurant considers it a privilege that YOU get to come here and not the other way around like it use to be. Not excited when I come here anymore

    Service is crap, as usual. Why do I come here? Location and hours makes this place the most convenient place to go after a performance. That said, I'm so used to it being crappy that I don't care:)
