My first day in Austin visiting a friend we went to dinner. The food was good, margarita was scrumptious, and sitting outside listening to the fountains of running water was relaxing. Wonderful 1st time experience. To make the experience even more enjoyable the waitress and I had something in common, we grew up in the same area. I was floored... More

Recommended by hotel known for its 'Trudy's Crawl'. Food was rich and very good. Plenty of it. Service good. Sitting in booth uncomfortable. Not impressed with margarita so switched to beer. Enjoyed for food and atmosphere. A little weak on comfort and cleanliness. Still recommend as a good stop.

This place was recommended to us by a friend and a friend he is! This place was great! the Ruby Red margarita was amazing and the appetizer sampler gave us a little taste of 4 different appetizers. Charles was super friendly offering us information on different sites to see, both main-stream and some that are "off the beaten path". This... More

On a weekend away filled with food and drink Trudy's came thru strong! Shaker cocktails were amazing and at 6.00 special well worth it. Stuffed avacadoes were second to none! Friendly staff and great service. A Texas must!

We came here Sunday for breakfast and I was able to get a Belgium waffle, ham, and hash browns for about 6 bucks. Mimosas are... More

I stopped at Trudy's based on a tip from my hotel, and I was not dissapointed. The food was excellent and the beers were cold.
