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

SOOOOO I have to start off with saying the service was TOP NOTCH. The staff were all so friendly and the food came out SUPER quick. I couldn't believe how fast our food was served after we ordered. The only thing I was disappointed in was the taste. I expected something fabulous because it was featured on DDD. The queso... More

We were near Dallas today around lunch time so I searched for a restaurant that had been on Diners Drive-ins & Dives. Glad we chose Avilas. Good thing we have GPS or we might've passed the location. It is a remodeled house (I'll add a photo of the outside so you know what to look for) but doesn't feel too... More
