As close to home cooking

When I can't get Mom's home Mexican cooking, this is as close as you are going to come!

You cant go wrong, tacos, enchilads, gordita's...you have to try it all.

We lived in ElPaso for eight years 25 years ago. This restraunt has always been the best. Every year for the past ten years we travel to ElPaso from Arlington,Texas just to eat at Avila's. It is the best mexican food we have eaten. The queso is to die for. We absolutely love it.

Simple, tasty food!

Their enchiladas are light; their chile con queso is to die for, and their sopapillas are the standard of the city! Our family has been going there for years, especially when everyone comes into town. We're never disappointed!

Like eating at home...without the work!

For over 10 years, I have visited Avila's once or twice a week! I have had parties in their back room. I've met the family over the years. When I feel like an easy, quick meal, Avila's is my first choice. The servers have all been there for years and over time, they have learned all of my family's favorite foods. The helpers that get chips and drinks aren't talkative, but mainly because I don't speak spanish and their english is limited. However, they always get me what I need. I have never walked out of Avila's frustrated or disappointed.

Great Mexican Food, Service exemplary service

The best enchilada's I've ever had. Service with a smile, asked for extra sides everyone was more than happy to help. Other reviews have mentioned that they need a bigger menu; THEY DON'T its good regional food thats what they make. If you like enchiladas, tacos, rellenos, tamales definately try this place. Sopaipillas also come with every meal.

Bland, flavorless food

Avila's is mediocre at best. Their salsa was rotten, and their food is bland. The busboys (or buspeople?) were unattentive, and when they WERE present, they were not helpful at all. The paintings in there were okay, though. Felipa Solis, I scold you for your frivolously awarding this food.

Can't see how this is the best in El Paso at all.

I have never had a bad server here, or seen any scandalous employee behavior. But the food is just average. Not great, but not bad. The ambience is crowded, not pleasant. The menu is boring. Too bad the sopapillas can't be a main dish, because they are the only really good thing here.

Not good.

Avila's used to be wonderful but now I am not so sure. I'm sorry to say that today, this restaurant could not be more overrated. The food was not the best I've had, especially on the borderland. The entire place is far too crowded and confined. The service is even beginning to slack as I see managers flirting with young women in the front. I have also personally seen the Mr. Avila himself humiliate an employee in front of other customers after she repeatedly apologized. Customer service is clearly a priority but at what cost?

NEEDS NEW MENU

AVILAS HAS BEEN IN EL PASO FOR YEARS, BUT LATELY IT HAS BECOME VERY SLOPPY WITH THERE MENU & STAFF.IT NEEDS TO CHANGE THERE WHOLE MENU .I THINK ITS BEEN THE SAME SINCE IT FIRST OPEN. NEW MENU ITEM WOULD BE GREAT AND MAYBE A LITTLE SEAFOOD WOULD BE GOOD TOO. MANAGMENT, WELL AS FOR THE ONE ON MONTANA, IT COULD USE SOME HELP SAME WITH THE STAFF.I BEEN GOING ALOT LATELY AND JUST TO SEE IF ANYTHING HAS CHANGED AND EVERY TIME ITS DISSAPOINTING.AVILAS REALLY NEEDS SOME WORK WITH THERE FOOD & PEOPLE.
