I came here with a party of 5, and we all ordered different meals. With a little taste of everything on the table, we were all deliriously happy with all of the tasty combinations. There are several stand-out meals here, and no way to get the order wrong. My personal favorites were the ground beef dishes. The tacos and enchiladas... More

I've been frequenting Avila's for almost twenty years now. My two favorite items are the pozole soup and the picadillo stuffed chile relleno. Also .... be aware: the salsa is not for the faint of heart. SPICY!!!! But, you can't stop eating it!

Can't rate the actual service as we had food delivered to our hotel. But I can review the yummy food! The black bean enchiladas were delicious! My son had the spinach enchiladas and said they were very good too. Side of spanish rice was very good.

I was curious where I could find some good taco's while in Dallas. After searching, I found this little gem and was so glad I stopped. Initially, I was wondering where I was headed. The restaurant is tucked away, and actually in a little old home. The place was quaint and clean. I asked the gentleman what I should try,... More

We were very happy with the quality of the food. I had awesome enchiladas and the rest of the people I was with also loved it! An awesome place we will go to again. The salsa given with chips is a little on the spicy side so be warned!

Had the Beef Brisket corn tacos. I was disappointed. It seemed at though the brisket was boiled and someone forgot the seasoning.

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!
