This place has been around in one form or another for at least 30 years. I believe the current owner is one of the original owners, if not the original owner. If you've been here before you'll notice many of the menu items are still the same. Javier's has some new items as well. My burrito... read more

*now named JAVIER'S HACIENDA* Don't let the outside appearance fool you. When you enter the downtown-east eatery, you'll be transported to a true Mexican taqueria. Our server spoke and understood English very well, although we never let a language barrier be the reason for not trying ethnic restaurants. We ordered a variety if taco plates. Served as a plate of... More

So to start we were the ONLY people in the restaurant, not only did they give poor service but also they could not understand why we were furious. After requesting margaritas twice, the margaritas came at the end of the meal. Half the meal came out while 2 people in our group of 4 sat and waited 20 for our... More

Worried when I found out El sol closed. We live 40 miles away. Javier is still worth the trip. I used to have work parties there. Now I can again !

I have been there twice and it is correct - the name has changed recently to Javier's Hacienda. It is unfortunate that the restaurant is located a little away from the main area Downtown but it is definitely worth it. The food has an excellent flavor. I can still taste the incredible guacamole in my mouth... Ingredients taste fresh and... More

So, my wife and I love Mexican and just recently moved to Indianapolis. This was our first date night out with kids at home with a sitter. As we were driving there, my wife was a little uneasy about the location and honestly in the back of my head I was half wondering if our car would be ok for... More

Not in the best neighborhood but well worth the trip. This is a family owned, real mexican (not tex-mex) restaurant. The service is incredible and the food is so, so good! We've gone here for special occasions often over the years and it is one of our favorite places
