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

We had a delicious meal on a Sunday afternoon. Food was excellent & service was speedy. Fresh salsa & chips. Took some to go. Yummy brisket tacos. Highly recommend!

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

This was a late lunch. Although the fajita's were on special, the fish tacos was my interest for this visit. My first taste, the garnish was fresh and flavorful. My tastebuds were excited at this point, now, what about the rest of the story? Here comes the fish, well, ooops, yes, dry, fishy, and not much flavor was all that... More

They have a good menu, wonderful servers and fresh ingredients. I had the taquitos don tavo and they were wonderful. I loved their guacamole as well. Their salsa was a little spicy for my taste but others in our party enjoyed it. My husband had the flautas and they had good quality meat and weren't greasy. I'll definitely go back!

This is the first time that Trip Advisor has let me down. We went there because of the great reviews. My whole group was disappointed. The margaritas were good but the salsa was so hot no one could eat it. The queso was like a chicken and cheese broth. The brisket tacos were ok. Our waiter had zero personality. I... More

Our dinner at Avila's was a revelation. I can say with confidence that This was the best Mexican food I have eaten. The enchiladas were perfectly prepared, the rice and refried beans likewise. The tortilla chips and salsa were equally as good. The margaritas were also perfectly executed. Dinner for 3 was around $70. Fabulous.
