Once you are inside it is a different world. Staff quickly attends to you and gets you sited. Wait staff are there with chips, salsa, and ready to take your drink order. Ordered lunch and it came in a reasonable amount of time. Got their chicken taco salad which had fresh lettuce and plenty of meat!!

The atmosphere, wait staff, owners are all wonderful. Owners will come out and talk with patrons. They do a special on birthdays where you put on a big sombrero, sing to you and serve you deep fried ice cream or a plain ice cream sundae. Chips and salsa are homemade and great.

Welcoming staff, very helpful with their descriptions of the menu, Queso and Guacamole were wonderful appetizers and the salsa was tasty and not too spicy, The Quesadilla was not your traditional Tex/Mex cut in slices but had a flavor and texture we found appealing, The Trini's favorite burrito was more than I could eat which made for a great lunch...

We live an hour from this restaurant and try to get here at least once a month. Excellent authentic Mexican food and daily specials. Can't beat the service of Joanne behind the bar. The Mr. Joe's marguerita is a must! Very personable owners.

We have been going here for years,Got the regular bean/meat burritto. It wasnt as good as use to be. Too much lettuce and replaced beans in it with refried mushy beans..Service was good. Chips and salsa excellent.Margaritta special was good. $2.50!

This was my first time here. I came with my close friend and my sister and brother-in-law. They were having a festival and car show. We were able to get in and get seated fairly quickly. Orders took a little while, but not too long. Their "wet" burritos were excellent! I was used to the "wet" burritos of the Dungeon... More

Three of us went here for an early lunch/dinner. Timing was perfect, got seated right away. Excellent waitress, food totally awesome. Food was served piping hot from oven. I had beef enchiladas, the guys had burritos. Impossible to give Trini's enough praise. We WILL go back!!

We've been eating here for years. The food is some of the Mexican food we've ever had. The wet burrito is by far superior to any I've ever had. Highly recommend Trini's for couples, family, any occassion.
