my wife and i had seen avilas resturant on the food channel and finally were able to eat lunch there this past weekend. i had enchiladas which i thought were very good and my wife had the fish tacos and she is ready to go back and eat there again. the hot sauce was good but not as hot as i like it but a lot better than other places. the service was exellent and cant wait to go back. not much parking but a great place to eat mexican food
The restroom is accessed by walking into the kitchen where food is being prepared. The door to the restroom opens directly into the kitchen and the fumes and germs are probably going directly into the food preparation area. This has to be a code violation in any city especially a city of the size of Dallas. This is a real possibility of spreading germs via food prepared next to a restroom.
This restaurant is over-rated. It is hard to find...and the mexican food is bland, almost equivalent to eating out of a can. The service is poor...I asked for a fried egg on my enchiladas...and did not get it.! Secondly, the enchladas did not come with enchilada sauce..but chili...like Hormel's chili..the cheese was American cheese!
The Chili Relleno..had no batter on it.
I am not a big fan of Mexican food. I like TexMex much better, but this is average Mexican at best. I don't get the rating posted here, but again, I have learned that internet ratings are not to be trusted on many things.
The food and the service are excellent. The owner is always there and gives you the feeling of being in his home. I have had many different dishes but my favorite are the brisket tacos. The flavor of the food is always just right. I do not like heavy mexican but I also want the true mexican flavor. The combination is always well done. The place is small but we never have to wait and I hear he's opening a new restaurant near by.
Family owned and operated Avila's (owned by Richard Avlia) has always been my special mexican food night out resturant. Richard Avila as a graduate of 1974 from Jesuit along with my dad and me myself being a Jesuit student the food, atmosphere, and service is unparalled by any restaurant in Dallas. As a interesting fact the restaurant is acutally the home Richard and his family grew up in that they then later converted to a restaurant and 10+ years later they are still doing great busniess. While cozy the establishment has a warm feel with mouthwatering entrees that you won't forget for a long time to come.
