Everything is fantastic. It doesn't matter what you order, it will be great. I prefer the Trini's wet burrito, but dang.....the taco's, taco salad, enchiladas....you name it, they have it and it is top notch. Tons of fresh chips and salsa wetting your appetite while you wait for your food to come. Very fast service and even if it looks... More

We had heard good things about the Mexican food at this restaurant. We went there at 5:30 on a Wednesday evening to find the restaurant was packed full of people with at least 25 customers waiting to be seated.. Because we were a party of two, our wait was only about 15 minutes, much shorter than the wait for the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel staff at the Comfort Suites Hotel in Comstock Park and I am happy to say that they were spot on with this! The fresh tortilla chips and salsa (2 kinds!) were delicious as were our dinners. I had the "Downtown Combo" which consisted of 1 beef taco, 1 cheese enchilada, 1... More

I have been to Downtown Trini's several times over the past few years. Every time the food is excellent and the wait staff very pleasant. It is one of the best Mexican restaurant's in this area. If you like your salsa with some heat make sure you ask for the hot salsa than you can combine it with the regular... More

i've had much better burritos in gr. they use too much cumin. we had to add salt to chips and hot sauce to salsa to add flavor. the chips and salsa which are offered immediately before drinks, as if complimentary, are not. margaritas are good if you add an extra shot of tequila. husband liked his burger. cute enough mexican...

I have owned a few restaurants, worked at many more and have been a customer in 36 countries. Trini's is my favorite place. Why? Consistantly good food at a fair price and outstanding service.

I've eaten here many times and buy take-out when in a rush. Trini's is often busy with a short wait for a table. A good sign, eh? I know a lot of people that only know where Sparta is because of this restaurant. Mexican food, similar to Chinese is hard to make unique. You will not be disappointed but not... More

We were introduced to Trini's more than 10 years ago. It always pleases us with consistently good food and friendly service. It is about a 15 minute drive and always worth the trip. Great eats, people!
