Standard stop on the Visitor to Austin tour

At least for my visitors...Food is solid, Mexican martinis are tall. Fantastic fall back option if cooking is the last thing that you want to do.

...I can make a Mexican Martini at home

Honestly, I cannot think of a time that I went to Trudy's without a Mexican Martini on my mind. The food and the customer service were definitely not the things that brought me inside. I haven't been back in about two years, as I have a better Mexican Martini recipe at home, minus the poor service! If Trudy's were the only Tex-Mex joint in town, then maybe I could deal with the overpriced plates of cheese, the aloof attitudes of the under skilled waitstaff and the sheer ineptitude of the managers. However, I am fortunately not in that boat--I live in Texas! I need only drive a little further down the street--any street that a Trudy's is on--and find a better establishment.

Not Good for Groups

Trudy's is absolutely NOT good for groups. On a Monday at 5 p.m. they would not seat our group of 10 (7 parents and 3 kids) unless we split into two tables. Management said it would be hard to serve us. There were only 10-15 people eating at this time, and there were two open tables along a wall where no server would ever need to pass through. Oh well - we took our $250+ bill to Z'Tejas on 6th, and I will never bring people to Trudy's again.

LEARN TO TIP OR STAY HOME

I WORK AT TRUDY'S SOUTH AT LITTLE TEXAS LANE AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH HORRIBLE CHEAP TIPPERS IN ALL MY LIFE.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION WAITERS IN TEXAS MAKE 2.13$ AN HOUR. WE RELY ON TIPS FOR EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING. AND WE ALSO HAVE TO GIVE AWAY 30% OF OUR TIPS TO OTHER WORKERS IN THE RESTAURANT. IF YOU CAN'T TIP 15% THEN JUST STAY HOME BECAUSE I DONT WANT TO SEE YOUR CHEAP, SELFISH, SCUMBAG FACE IN MY RESTAURANT.

Great drinks!

I tried Trudy's for the first time last week for happy hour drinks and appetizers. I was impressed by the quality of their drinks and their food was delicious, I'll definitely be going back.

Enjoyed our lunch here

My regional manager for All-Tex Exteriors and I went here and had a great lunch and business meeting. The food and service were both great and timing was perfect for a lunch time business meeting.

Good Drinks. Okay Food

For drinks, Trudy's is it, especially the mexican martini. For food, it is okay. Austin has way too many really good texmex resturants to be eating at Trudy's.

Great breakfast and happy hour!

I find myself at Trudy's at least twice a week. Sometimes I crawl in there in the morning for a quick plate of much-needed breakfast tacos. Sometimes I stroll up in the afternoon after work for happy hour. Either way, I rarely leave disappointed. The food is pretty standard Tex-Mex, the kitchen is cool about vegetarian/vegan options and both their red and green complimentary salsas are excellent. Drink prices are great and, if you can make it there before 5pm, you should have no trouble snagging a table on the patio. I've had one really bad service experience but I chalked that up to one particular server paying too much attention to a table of off-the-clock employees and not enough attention to our table. Trudy's is not changing the way we think about food, but it is keeping us full and filling up our glass whenever we ask.

Best Guacamole, I've EVER had in a resturant

Trudy's is great. A fun casual place, w/cold beer, good margaritas, and HOT salsa. Parking is difficult when crowded, however seating was prompt.
Breakfast is great here too.
