8820 Burnet Road
Austin, TX 78758

Trudy's is an Austin institution - they make killer Texas Martinis (you can only have two before they cut you off) and serve up some pretty awesome Tex-Mex. My mom took me and A there on our last day and we went all out. I couldn't resist the lunch buffet - for $8.95 it's a real bargain and they seem to put a little bit of each of their dishes there for you to try. Starting with the fish goujons and going clockwise, there's a soft beef taco, chicken flauta, smoked chicken enchiladas, grilled pork chops, grilled chicken and a stuffed avocado. There were also little servings of flan for dessert and lots of fresh fruit. My mom went with the stuffed avocado as an entree and an enormous portion of avocado stuffed with chicken and cheese came out with rice and beans on the side. A got a giant burger with gorgonzola and bacon, which he polished off happily. And since he got potato wedges when he ordered shoestring fries, our waitress just comped a massive side of shoestring fries to go with the potato wedges. Genius.
