Bread Pudding was to die for

The ONLY thing that was bad, its a small family restaurant that is LOUD. Of course if the table beside you has 12 folks, all drinking delicious 'Rita's, then your going to have to talk as loud as them. FOOD: 5 stars. We had a two enchilada plate and a three enchilada plate. Both we Delicious. Heard... read more

Heard about this spot on Diner's Drive-In's and Dives, but was unimpressed. Not bad, just not great. Good for a quick lunch if you're in the area, but don't expect anything more than standard tex-mex.

The bread pudding was the best I have ever had. It's enough for two people. I had the triple d plate and would get that again. The waitress was very helpful with the menu and the service was great. I'll go back for sure next time in the the Dallas market.

A very small, dated restaurant situated between a couple of auto repair garages but, WOW, the food is good! We had the steak fajitas and the taco salad and also enjoyed chips and salsa.

I had black bean enchiladas, my husband had the pork tacos. Both were delicious, and his side of beans was truly yummy, with really deep flavor. Staff very nice too.

We asked a cop where we could get some great Mexican food and she recommended Avila's. The chips and salsa were great…the salsa had a nice burn. I would have been happy with just that!! I had brisket tacos and they were wonderful! It was really flavorful, moist, and tender. I wish I could eat more now! My husband had... More

Avila is highly rated on TripAdvisor and similar websites, so my sister & I thought we would try it. The parking lot is very scary at night. They are very generous with the large sized guacamole. I ordered the Avila Special- two different kinds of chicken enchiladas, a cheese enchilada, rice & beans. It is very good.

I tried this place a couple of days ago and upon entering had a feeling that the food was going to be good, as despite a rainy drive to get here, the place was packed and the waiter was hurried. Sure enough, starting with the chips and salsa and through the beef taquitos, I learned the food was actually GREAT.... More
