    I got a mushroom quesadilla and because I'm a vegan the waitress replaced the cheese with refried beans. Very good service here. Also love the mexican martini.

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

    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

    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.

    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.
