How do you pick a Tex-Mex restaurant when there are so many in Dallas? Decide what you want ahead of time – enchiladas, rellenos or flan – and then choose the restaurant. And, if the answer to that question is homemade salsa, then Avila’s is your destination.
Avila’s salsa is the kind you want out-of-town visitors to know what real salsa tastes like. It’s so good they know you’ll want more, so they give you your own carafe for refills. Do your best not to fill up on chips before your meal arrives. You probably hear that a lot, but trust me, it’s nearly impossible to stop eating them here.
Lunch specials are the best deal at Avila’s, with the chicken fajitas providing an excellent food to cash ratio for $7.99. Don’t forget to check the board for off-menu dailies.
There is also a varied regular menu to be tempted with, so all the members of your party will find the dish they are craving. Top off the tasty food with speedy service and Avila’s is the perfect Tex-Mex lunch destination for a quick break from all that Internet surfing you do while pretending to crunch numbers.
Take the short drive on Maple west of Uptown, but be sure to carpool and take the most compact car because parking can be tricky.
