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 the Bread Pudding... More

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

This restaurant is a favorite of mine and my colleagues. It has simple Mexican and Tex-Mex favorites. It also has a lot of good vegetarian food. I highly recommend it. The only negatives are the parking and the size of the restaurant. It is quite small and gets pretty crowded at lunch.

We decided to make a special trip to eat at Avila's after seeing it on Diners Drive Ins and Dives. They showed the brisket tacos and posole so they were on our must eat list. It's a small place that hasn't changed or been updated in years but don't let that out you off. The place was very clean and... More
