    The stuffed avocado is too good to be vegetarian. Tastes like meat

    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!

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

    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!

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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) .

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

    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!

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