Good margaritas and decent food

Ate here recently with some business colleagues. Service is very good and the food is presented well. Particular note was the guacamole dip which was excellent. Margaritas were pretty good as well.

We had reservations on a Saturday evening in which we were seated right away. After 5 seconds of being seated the server wanted to know what everyone wanted to drink. We asked to see the menus to see the drink specialties. After 1 minute of receiving the menus the server wanted to take our order. He got a little miffed... More

Great meal, great service, great drinks and a cigar lounge! Perfect. Ceviche was great, filets were outstanding smoked chicken was also really good. Cigar lounge also has some outdoor seating for cooler evenings...

I went there with my friends after we read a lot of good reviews on the restaurant, but we didn't like anything there. To me it was one of the worst restaurants in Dallas.

neither the salsa or chips were good the tortillas were definitely ho-hum the chicken was under-cooked for mole poblano this restaurant is grossly over-rated, could have had better dishes for the half the price at most Mexican places in Dallas

We were at the start of a road trip across the South West US, and, as we were starting out in Dallas, a friend recommended Javier's. She told me that the food was good, it was a great place to go, and that in her opinion, no one has ever left there sober. We had a great evening there, and... More

Everyone in Dallas LOVES this place and while the food is good it's just a little overrated. I love the lounge area with the big chairs but the place gets incredibly crowded and if you don't like cigar smoke or smelling like it, this isn't the place for you. There's a dish that everyone raves about (can't remember the name... More

Upscale. Variety of choices with a plethora of seafood served many ways in addition to the traditional meat dishes. Menu also includes veal and quail. The warm salsas are very flavorful.
