Saw this in Texas Monthly magazine and it was very good. Many flavors of margaritas and the one I had was very good. I had beef puffy tacos and they were good. Will go here again.

Average at best. Chose Vila’s because it was close by and had 4 star reviews. I know it’s not the best time for restaurants. However the food was not very good and the service was less. Not many folks dining yet we constantly waited for...More

Be careful here; the margaritas on the menu mention NO price so they can charge you anything they like to. Not very friendly workers. Food was very bland. Our visit was a real disappointment and we are definitely not going back.More
