Everyone I know goes to Trudy's for the drinks (the Mexican Martini specifically). The food is fine - some of the dishes are great. You have to remember that it's Tex-Mex, not authentic Mexican (if you have friends that are snobby that way). The South Star location is the one I visit most, and it's very crowded and noisy most evenings. Usually there's a wait for a table. As far as staff goes, I have had some very nice wait staff and I've had some unbelievably rude staff as well. In short, it's not my favorite restaurant by any means, but I have no intentions of not going again. It's a great place for after work or to meet up with friends. I don't see a lot of families there.
