Food was ok but not special. The shrimp tacos were ok. Beer choices were unimpressive. Sopapillas were delicious. The service was cold, unsmiling but attentive. No one working there seemed very happy to be there. I get it that its not always fun in the...More

I first ate at Trudy's North Star a few years ago and loved the food, drinks, and atmosphere, casual but nice. Ate there again recently and was surprised. The rice was bland and cold, the shrimp taco ok and the charo beans very good. Service...More

This restaurant bills themselves as a Mexican food joint. Nothing could be further from the truth. The food tastes like a frozen TV dinner that's been marginally re-heated. Although the parking lot appears to be crowded on weekends, there are several other restaurants in this...More

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...More
