    Fajitas are good. Anything else is really sucks. Margaritas are gross and super sweet. Great selection of beer on tap.

    Everything is good. I've never had a bad meal at any of the Trudy's locations. You must try the Stuffed Avocado.

    Menu revamp takes chipotle crema, rellenos, and most of what was worth eating out of the mix. Where's the selection?

    I enjoyed the caso, guacamole, and salsa with chips. I also had the steak taco salad. I washed it all down with a top shelf Margarita and a Mexican Martini. Everything was delicious

    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. 😞

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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
