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.

We visited Avila's after seeing it featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with high expectations. Unfortunately we found it to be good, not great. The salsa was good and spicy and the chile relleno was tasty. The brisket tacos weren't the best we've ever had...More

Went on a Saturday night. Kept it simple as we both had the chicken rellanos. Excellent Tex Mex. Service, considering the crowd, was attentive and polite. A good value for a wonderful evening.

The best fajitas I have ever had. The salsa was really hot/spicy but tasty. The layered queso was excellent. I had both the steak and chicken and coupled with the queso I was in heaven! I will be back.

Across the board, a very good evening. Service was excellent and very quick. The food was spot on. Had the spinach enchiladas, the relennos, and the enchiladas 3-ways. Would have all again. Not fancy, but a good pour on the wine and a good beer...More

Staff extremely friendly and attentive. Close to the medical district in Dallas. Hot sauce is really good and addictive but beware is hot. I've had the chimichanga, fajita nachos and brisket tacos.... all which I recommend. Always busy.

I have had a severe case of TexMex deprivation for a few months. So a trip to Love Field in Dallas gave me the best excuse to look for some great TexMex cuisine. The lady on my cell phone said Avila's was one of the...More

After seeing that it made DD&D on tv, we knew we had to try it. So glad we did! The reviews I read were spot on. A restaurant located in a slightly sketchy part of town ( yet only a mile from million dollar condos)!...More
