Stopped for dinner at Avenida, Cocina Latina, on a Tuesday evening and they were featuring “taco Tuesday”, which was three tacos and three sides for $20. I opted for the special and I have to say it was a great call. The tacos were fantastic and filling. The sides were also tasty. I also had an orange mojito and it was one of the best drinks I have even had. Of course I had to order another. If I wasn’t scheduled to give a research talk at Drexel the next morning, I would have had more mojitos as they are that good. For desert I had the coconut tres leches cake, with mango sorbet. Wow, tastes like it looks. Absolutely delicious. My colleagues enjoyed their dinner and drinks as well. Our waitress was very helpful and courteous. Avenida is a fantastic place for Latin American cuisine in Philadelphia. I will visit again for sure!

This restaurant is great. Friendly attentive staff. Great atmosphere. The dinner was amazing (had the scallops w/ pineapple rice) and desert was sinful. Best margaritas I've ever had! Used to be a loyal Distrito fan but this place was fantastic!

Had lunch at Avenida today. The food was great, service was fine, except that the waitress kept calling us "girls" and we're in our late 40's and late 50's and she was in her maybe late 20's. I'm sure she meant to be friendly but it was annoying. But, it's a great place. Loved the mirrors!
