Don’t let the outside looks of this place fool you! It is GREAT food and wonderful service! Some of the best Mexican food we have ever eaten. We got a combo plate, queso and beef fajitas. Really flavorful, super spicy salsa, too. Great pre-flight meal...More

I am really picky about Mexican food and, in that respect, they certainly delivered a good meal. It was flavorful, the service was a bit rushed but courteous, so that made up for a lot of things. Now, I'm an OCD-accountant-type individual. I know every...More

Imagine trying to establish a Tex-Mex presence in Dallas, and then imagine trying to be outstanding. The Avila family did that, 40+ years ago, and those of us fortunate enough to partake after all this time can only count our blessings. Everything I've had in...More

Finally ate there and not disappointed; we had three dishes of good old fashioned Mexican food that brought back memories. Our moms made similar dishes and these had similar taste, appearance and flavor. Try it, you won’t be disappointed.

A bit of a whole in the wall, but great food and service. Both of us had the relleno, with the sour cream and the tomatillo sauce. The queso is very good and the chips are light and crisp. Overall, an outstanding meal and authentic.

Great little place that works if you just want goo food and friendly service. Not much on ambiance, but who cares when the food is that good? Actual steak (or brisket) on the nachos and perfectly proportioned.
