Just had a business dinner of sorts with some colleagues. The chicken mole was great. The service was good too. I highly recommend this mom and pop small restaurant

This is close to Love Field, so we stopped after our flight in to Dallas. Avila's had great reviews and we can confirm that the food is excellent. Prices were also reasonable. I recommend the pulled pork tacos. The salsa is on the spicy side. Worth the visit!

Several sets of friends have talked about Avila's for years. We finally had lunch there yesterday. The salsa is spicy hot, but good. The queso was a little watered down, but good. The enchiladas were just average. The margarita was decent. Just seems live average Tex-Mex. I may give it one more shot, but need to find the specialty dishes... More

Good food, Good Service and busy. This is a small converted house that was packed but the service was quick enough that there was no waiting for a table. The salsa served with the chips was a little too spicy for me, but we ordered their queso and it was very good. I ordered their Triple-D Combination to get a... More

This highly-rated, almost revered, Tex-Mex joint left me disappointed, from the ho-hum food (not much better than the other Tex-Mex I've had) to the miserable service (our cutlery and drinks were virtually dropped onto our tabletops, which were so uneven it was like dining at sea). Nothing special, in my opinion.

Very good. Could use a little work on the refried beans but salsa, rice and enchiladas were outstanding.

Wonderful Mexican food with good service in an unassuming environment. Salsa is very hot with a long tail on the heat; habit forming. Menu has all the usuals plus a few of their own twists. Look forward to more meals there.

We were treated by friends to this wonderful restaurant. Every dish was prepared to perfection, and the authentic spices and preparations added to our special evening. The food was fresh, each bite was thoroughly delicious, and you can request how spicy you would like your food. The restaurant is not large, but holds enough people. A reservation might be in...

I came here before leaving for the airport and it was some of the best Mexican food I've had. The salsa was pretty hot/spicy!!
