The giant palapa over the outdoor patio reflects the easygoing, day-at-the-beach atmosphere at Trudy's South Star. Under the palapa, you'll find a lively bar scene. Inside, there's another huge, U-shaped bar in the middle of the restaurant. The powerful Mexican martini is the drink of choice. The food ranges from burgers and salads to Tex-Mex to one-of-a-kind creations such as the stuffed avocado. The fried, breaded avocado often emerges in an unrecognizable state, but it's delicious nonetheless. It's packed with spicy chicken and smothered in hot sauce. For early risers, Trudy's migas are an Austin breakfast staple. Eggs are scrambled with serrano peppers, corn tortilla slices, and a secret blend of cheeses. Try the Guatemalan coffee for a stiff jolt of morning caffeine.
