Had a small family gathering and without exception everyone enjoyed what they ordered. The most talked about was the Miga and Fajita plate and the Miga burritos. Very good food and especially very good cheese dip. Enjoy! Rabbit

Had dinner with a relative. We went early on a Monday evening to avoid the crowd. Trudy's is very popular and can get crowded. The food was excellent, and the service was fast, friendly, and not intrusive. I had the Fajita Chicken Burrito, and it was one of the best burritos I have had. The chips came with two types...

Friday night. Trudy's is a new favorite for someone who eats Mexican at least once a week. The Burnet Rd. location is tucked away in a small shopping center, and parking is tight. Patio seating is on your own. Our tacos were filled with fresh beef fajita meat, and we were amazed that Trudy's offers five difference bean options. There's... More

The chicken fried steak was to die for!!! The chicken buritto with cheese sauce was a disappointment. Overall a good experience, will definitely be back!

The food & margaritas are really good. The outdoor patio area was small & intimate. The interior of the restaurant wasn't very inviting imo.

I've lived in Austin a while and Trudy's is still the place I love bringing Austin visitors. The food is great and the drinks are good. I'm an enchilada fan but starting with the favorites section on the menu will never steer you wrong. My relative thinks Trudy's stuffed avocados are one of the best things she's ever eaten. They're... More
