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.

Great family place to eat. All employees are so friendly and personable. The owners speak to us every time we are there, even when they are busy. It makes us feel so at home. The food is excellent.

Trini's is definitely a local favorite all around the area. Personally I've eaten there a few times and I don't think the food has very much taste. Maybe it doesn't help that I have lived in other parts of the country so I might have a higher expectation of food taste and quality. If I tell somebody I don't like... More

Have always loved Trini's use to go often when I lived in MI. On a return trip I had to visit and it did not disappoint. The food is still has fresh and delicious as I remembered. Went on margarita night. For $2.50 you would think that they would be watered down, well no. After all these years they are... More
