Foursquare Tips

  • Guy Fieri, host of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, stopped by Avila's for some classic family comfort food. We like the brisket tacos.
  • The best place to take out-of-towners who wonder what all the fuss is when it comes to Tex-Mex. We recommend the chile relleno. And the brisket tacos. And, well, everything else. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Dallas Observer chose Avila's for Best Mexican Restaurant for Best of Dallas 2010. Not an easy category in Texas- they must be doing something very right.
  • If anyone tries to tell you that it's not the same since Ricardo left, they're right. The service is better!
  • After a legal battle that bordered on bloodbath with son Ricardo, the Avila family continues to serve classic Tex-Mex dishes to legions of rabid fans.
  • I tried to order a glass of mole sauce because it is that good. They wouldn't give it to me. You can try though. Might work.
  • Get the fish tacos on corn tortillas with a side of veggies instead of rice. Amazing!
  • Don't be a foolish person that foolishly eats the wrong thing like a fool. Order gorditas.
  • This is the best brisket I've ever put in my face. I'm sorry, mom.
  • Hey Wayne? Yeah, I'm all up in your kitchen again bro. You don't know squat about Tex-Mex because this place is sick. Take your ass to Taco Bell or Taco Cabana with your touristy self. Come at me bro.
  • I'm back Wayne. I'm here just to prove you how wrong you are. Avila's is the bees knees pal. You're just a sucka.
  • Try the Steak Fajitas - Lunch with work crew (via @Foodspotting)
  • Check out Avila's as seen on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives
  • The chili relleno served at Avila's made this year's 100 Favorite dishes because the kitchen leaves the pepper naked instead of breading it. Watch out for that salsa -- it packs a punch.
  • Don't miss out on the brisket gorditas.
  • So yummy!!!!!!
  • The picante sauce that came with the chips was a tad spicier than i expected. Yummy though. Had the fish tacos. Very good!
  • Don't sleep on the sour cream enchiladas either. Oh, and watch out for the salsa. It will light you up.
  • Dan's Burritos are DA BOMB!
