The fresh chips and salsa are excellent! I ordered the steak fajitas and my husband had the carne asada. Everything from the flour tortillas, grilled veggies to the guacamole was very good.

Dropped in on a lark and wasn't disappointed. Cool older building with the best collection of lamps you'll ever see. Food was great as well. Parking is a bit of a challenge as one would expect from central location.

If you love great Mexican food, margaritas, and a beachy location, this is the place for you. My favorite dish Avila's Mexican-style chicken soup. It's a huge portion, really a meal in itself and very healthy. There is a small private parking lot so you don't have to mess with parking meters on the surrounding streets. Great for watching football games at the bar too.

Avilas is a great place to hang out for Happy Hour and also any other time of the day. Their breakfasts are great and on a Sunday that have free soups included when you order an entree. They have TV's in their bar area to watch your sports and also parking in the rear.

Chefs at this Mexican restaurant know how to prepare the real deal Mexican dishes. From the red and warm green tomatillo salsas with fresh warm chips, to the best on the planet chicken soup, to the Carnitas tostada to the burrito - everything was so delicious. Also, the staff did a great job of serving us.

We enjoyed everything being Mexican foodies. We happened to be in the area and lucked out selecting this restaurant. If you are in the area, it is a must for your Bucket List. Enjoy - we did!
