    Trudy's is a great place to hangout and eat creative Tex-mex food. Tasty fried avocado, and I love the house corn tortillas. Get a Mexican Martini!

    Mexican martinis and stuffed avocados. There's a reason they're mentioned in every tip!

    The Mexican martini is the best martini in Austin, which is why it’s on our list of The Tastes That Make the City: Austin. Read more

    Queso and the house Mexican martini are quintessentially Austin. Fried avocado is also a favorite.

    Bacon wrapped quail is yummy. We tried the botanas and it was good.

    Get a free Mexican martini on your birthday. Stuffed avocados are good.

    Order the crispy tacos as sopapillas. It's life changing! And you can replace rice & beans with any side, grilled zucchini is the best!

    Fried avocados soak up the Mexican martinis

    Ciro's Special, Mexican Martinis, Bohemia Beer, and the fajitas. I love Trudy's!

    Dylan Roberts · September 20, 2014
  • Brook S.

    I'm guessing like many sub-par Tex Mex places in Austin, people like the margaritas enough to enjoy the food. I don't like margaritas... And definitely wasn't impressed by the food.

    Brook Shelley · August 10, 2014
  • Cody W.

    The downstairs patio and bar area are the best since there are so many TV's, and the full menu is served down here as well.

    Came in one day for happy hour. The Mexican martini is amazing! One drink and you are good to go for the entire night.

    there is a total of approximately zero reasons why you should pick something else than the stuffed avocado.

    Great weekday happy hour from 2-7pm. Make sure you get a Mexican Martini. You won't be disappointed.

    Migas & Steak Fajitas are to DIE for. So freaking good with their fresh squeezed orange juice.

    Natasha Rene'e · August 11, 2013
  • Parker F.

    Prepare yourself. Sitting at the bar can make you feel hated. The bartenders are more often than not, completely discourteous. Mexi marts are good though.

    Parker Featherston · August 6, 2013
  • Katy T.

    Ciro's Special with Chicken and Poblano Crema instead of queso. You'll be glad you did.

    Stuffed Avocado is beyond amazing. Make sure you leave room though - it can get heavy!

  • Andrew P.

    stuffed avacado all. the. way.

    Andrew Phillips · June 20, 2013
  • Tiffany L.

    This is hands down my favorite and consistent Tex-Mex in town! Every dish has great portion size and keep the martinis coming (they only limit 2 per visit and it's a good reason) .

    Tiffany Leung · June 16, 2013
  • Mallory H.

    Mexi marts and stuffed avocado. 'Nuff said.

    Mallory Hood · June 9, 2013

    If you're not here for the stuffed avocado then i don't know what you're doing here ;)

    Stuffed Avocado w/ Verde Sauce served-up next to a Mexican Martini -- NO exceptions!

    Steven Word · May 28, 2013
  • Matthew L.

    Sit downstairs in the bar - inside or outside. It's first come, first serve and the atmosphere is better.

    Matthew Lyle · May 28, 2013
  • Justin F.

    Authentic TexMex that lives up to the hype as an Austin institution. Was with a friend who is a foodie and he raved about it. I'm less sophisticated but had the best chicken mole burritto ever!

    Justin Foster · May 21, 2013
  • Brian N.

    Great happy hour! But beware: they try to upsell you on drinks - it's that kind of place.

    Brian Nunnery · May 3, 2013

    Get the sopa pillas! You will not regret it.
