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!

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.
