Avila’s El Ranchito in Costa Mesa

Avilas El Ranchito 3

For years I have loved Avila’s El Ranchito in Costa Mesa. My parents business was located just around the corner, so it was always a favorite lunch destination. Once I started living a low carb lifestyle, I had basically assumed that Mexican restaurants were off limits. Well I am happy to say that this isn’t the case when it comes to Avila’s El Ranchito. They have tailored their menu to compliment Low Carb customers. They have menu options such as Low Carb Fajitas and Chili Rellenos. Another great item that they have added to their menu is a low carb side dish option of fajita style veggies. No longer do you need to stare at a half plate full of rice and beans. Now you can enjoy a flavorful variety of vegetables including zucchini, mushrooms, peppers, and onions seasoned to perfection. For lunch I decided to order two chili rellenos with a side of the fajita vegetables and believe me this was quite the feast. I could have easily split this meal with someone, but it was just too yummy to share. If you live in the Orange County area you should definitely give this Low Carb friendly restaurant a try.
