    Great service! I sat outside at the palapa style bar and the atmosphere was amazing. The bartender made some great recommendations as well.

    Trudy's I love your migas, I really do but it should never take 30-45 minutes to get them!!!!!!!!!! Great food, poor poor service. 😞

    Food and the margaritas

    Sandra Compton · May 19

    Mediocre Tex-Mex...salsa tastes somewhat store-bought

    Jerry · May 17
  • Victoria Brian H.

    Crispy shrimp and habañero bacon shrimp (appetizers) were both so good! Habañero sauce is perfect blend of spicy and sweet, and not burn your taste buds hot.

  • Nia A.

    Ruby Red margaritas are awesome. Loaded jalapeños are to die for.

    John Waycuilis · November 26, 2014
  • Ailie C.

    You have to start off the queso! I usually get the fish tacos on corn tortilla -delish. If you're feeling adventurous, get a Mexican Martini or two.

    Stuffed avocados. Fried and stuffed with chicken! Appetizer portion is a tiny bit cheaper than the entree. Opt for the entree instead.

    Marry Awad · August 12, 2014
  • Meagan S.

    Anything with chipolte cream sauce is delicious.

    Queso is terrible now. Don't know what they did but it is ruined. It's clumpy and comes out room temp.

    Aaron Lundquist · December 2, 2013
  • Daniel T. R.

    Great drinks and specials. Friendly staff. Ask for Faiza's section. She's the best.

    Daniel T. Richards · November 16, 2013

    Nice broad menu. Margaritas could be better.

    Jennifer Reiney · November 6, 2013

    Queso and Guacamole by the Quart for sale to go!

    Mark Scott · October 16, 2013
  • Katy T.

    Try the Ciro's Special with chipoltle crema instead of queso, it's fantastic.

    Katy Thompson · September 27, 2013

    The chiliquiles are the bomb.

    Lynn M · September 8, 2013

    Used to be a Trudy's lover, but the food has seriously gone downhill. The green chilis on my green chili tacos taste like they come from a can And my favorite Mexican Martini was watered down. Sad.

    Apparently no breakfast/brunch on the patio on Sunday's with the exception of migas. Lame.

    Forget the Mexican Martini - Dragonberry is where it's at, like a skittles mojito. Yummo!

    Look both ways before crossing the street.

    Only used to come here for the Mexican Martinis. Their "new recipe" includes "fresh squeezed juices" and no olive juice. What makes this a martini? The glass? I'm officially joining the TURDy's team.

    Alyssa Neeb · April 18, 2013

    On Friday we had the blackened tilapia for $10. It was very good tho farm raised. The Sangritas were not too sweet or too tart and $5.

    Larry Shumake · March 16, 2013
  • Irma K.

    So sad!! My favorite beer marinated carnitas are off the menu and the usual off menu carrot cake is also no longer offered. Boohooo! They do have sopapillas now though, if that's your thing.

    Irma Kramer · March 12, 2013
  • Jevic J.

    I absolutely love going to this place with Sarah Farrar! Other than the amazing food & martini mouthgasms.. The staff can always handle anything that happens. Unexpected change in people or Sarah & I.

  • Rocio D.

    very bad service. Last time we went, we have 2 beer and they cut us. Just because we tell the waiter she take a long time to bring our beer. So for that reason. we will never come back

    Rocio D. · October 21, 2012
  • Crystal M.

    Can't miss with the chicken fajita green chile enchiladas. Hot hot hot and so good good good! Sitting outside on the huge patio is a must at this location.
