May 4, 2022

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS — Oldham Goodwin is excited to welcome Trudy’s Authentic Tex-Mex restaurant to College Station. Trudy’s will be opening in the coming months at 1200 University Drive East, College Station, where Red Lobster previously operated next to the Aloft hotel. Oldham Goodwin Retail Senior Associate Brett Boatner represented the landlord in negotiating the lease and worked diligently through multiple offers to resurrect a local pandemic casualty in this prime location.

“This is a bit of a comeback story for a key location in College Station,” Boatner said. “This is a spot that closed during the early months of the pandemic that will once again contribute to the local culture and economy. We had interest from a number of others along the way, but we’re thrilled to have Trudy’s coming to the area.”

Trudy’s prides itself on being the neighborhood spot for authentic, scratch-made Tex-Mex, oversized drinks, and having a genuinely good time. In addition to memorable dining experiences for everyone – young, old, families, college students, working folk, and party people – Trudy’s offers on-site and off-site catering events which can include beverage packages with their own TABC certified bartenders. An Austin institution since 1977, the College Station location will be Trudy’s first outside of the state capital after a recent revitalization of the existing restaurants and brand.

Take a look at the food, drinks, and atmosphere the Bryan/College Station community will soon be able to enjoy at Trudys.com.
