Delicious enchiladas!!!

Don't let the small parking lot fool you! The food is so fresh and delicious and there is a nice variety of foods to choose from on the menu. I had the brisket enchilada with queso sauce and chicken enchilada with the mole sauce. The rice and beans were also tasty. The service was also prompt and... read more

This was my second visit, this time for lunch. Salsa is fresh, and spicy hot. I like mine spicy. I ordered lunch #5, and it was very tasty. Portions are good - I will be back!

Out for lunch and found this little Mexican restaurant. Lots of other young professionals stopped in for lunch. Good atmosphere. Crispy chips and salsa. Can't remember what we ordered but I know it was all great.

The chili relleno is the BEST! No batter just pepper stuffed with cheese. The salsa was spicy and flavorful and the beans and rice were good too. I left my coat there at closing time and when I called the next day to ensure it was there so I could pick it up on my way to the airport they... More

Decided to try this restaurant with family while at a conference. The beans and rice were under seasoned. The beans were bland and to be truthful I've had better from a can. We all had to eat the chips without red sauce because it was HOT and no other sauce was avaliable. I didn't eat my food because it was... More

This place is pretty close to the airport, and the parking is limited (we backed into a space, and were so glad since the lot was full when we left, and we would have had to ack all the way out of the lot), it the service is terrific, and the food is delicious. I had the gorditas with brisket,... More

I'll admit, I didn't review Avila's while I was in Dallas - so I could keep the secret to myself. Not a big place to begin with VERY limited parking and seating. The food is incredible and service to match! Without a doubt this place will be on my "must stop" list when I'm in town. Even the leftovers for... More

I had the Triple D and was very happy with it. Large portions, the soup was the best. The salsa has a bite to it, but is very good. B had the fajitas and they were out of this world. Will have a return vist. The parking is a little cumbersome but manageable.
