This place is a great mom and pop Tex-Mex joint. I started with the chips and salsa. A word to the wise....the salsa is hot. For the entree, I had the brisket tacos. The meal was very simple, filling, and the brisket was bursting with...More

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.

It's this tiny little place on Maple. If you blink you'll miss it. Don't blink! Delicious food. Fast service. Salsa that will clear your sinuses. If you're in Dallas and want the Real Thing, check 'em out.

Excellent food and friendly staff. Can't say enough about how delicious the food is. Salsa is on the spicy side; but, you can't stop eating it!

Saw Avila's on DD&D, so this was the first place we ate on our Dallas trip. The restaurant is small, but very cozy, in a sketchy looking neighborhood. Don't let it scare you away though. The staff was extremely friendly and made our time there...More
