“I always get the chicken soup”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Avila's offers reliable U.S.-influenced Mexican food. I almost always get the chicken soup which is rich and tasty.

The Bar area of this location is very nice and a good place to meet people.

Enjoy El Ranchito every time we go. Just had the taco salad with steak and it was outstanding, the best taco salad I ever had!

“Great group gathering place”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

I went here with my family of 5 and my sisters family of 4. The waiter was very attentive and kept our 5 kids happy with drinks and chips. The food is very authentic and reasonably priced. The only thing that was unimpressive was their flan...it came out grey and grainy. We sent it back and didn't bother getting another. Their margarita's are delish! All in all it was a great place for us to get together and enjoy each other's company.

“Basic, Good Mexican Food”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

Maybe a little spicier than I normally like, but their food is good and is probably more authentic and most mexican restaurants.
