Tex-Mex mini-restaurant chain Trudy’s closed up its Four Star location in far southwest Austin as of this weekend, as noted by an Eater tipster and confirmed by a representative for Trudy’s representative. Its last day was on Sunday, January 27 at 13059 Four Star Boulevard. The restaurant’s other three locations remain open.

While Trudy’s Four Star is closed, it will still host already-booked events at the space. Owner Gary Truesdell shuttered this particular location so he can focus on his other three Trudy restaurants which will remain open. He also runs the South Congress Cafe in the Bouldin neighborhood.

Trudy’s is known for its particularly strong margaritas and classic queso.

Truesdell opened the first Trudy’s in 1977 on West 30th Street (aka Trudy’s Texas Star), followed by the Burnet Road restaurant (aka Trudy’s North Star) in 1988, and relocated Trudy’s South Star to Little Texas Lane in 2007, and finally opened the Four Star location in 2011.
