We were in Racine, visiting from Chicago, for the day, and wanted to go out to dinner. When we arrived at our first choice it was closed due to a private party. We saw a policeman by the door of the restaurant and we asked him for a recommendation. He told us about a Mexican restaurant named Javier's and how... More

The pick three was very, very good. I selected shredded beef enchilada, chicken chimichunga and shredded beef burrito. All three were outstanding and filled with lots of meat. Also, the margaritas were good and the salsa fresh and tasty.

Very good dinner with family friendly prices. Excellent deserts as well. Much larger facility than their original shop.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here tonight. The chips were hot and fresh and the salsa was good too. If you like spicy, ask for the green tomatillo salsa, otherwise they only bring the mild out for the gringos. The steak a la mexi was spicy as requested but with real fresh flavor, not just heat. Steak tacos were delicious as... More

Just celebrated my 75th birthday with a wonderful family gathering at Javier's and what a great experience. They went out of their way to make it a special occasion with a beautiful table and party center piece. Everyone went home feeling so well fed and the atmosphere was so inviting. Yes, the food.....oh so good. My vote for the very... More

I enjoy Javier's routinely, but for my mother's 75th birthday, they went out of their way to make it special for us! I called ahead and they decorated the table and put a bouquet of balloons out for my mother to feel special. The service was wonderful (Nancy is the BEST!) and the food was awesome (as usual). I will... More

Javier's is one of my favorite restaurants when I visit Racine, and one of my favorite Mexican restaurants anywhere. Javier has created an awesome Gluten Free menu that is one of the best I've seen yet. Soooo many choices. I was in heaven! I have several allergies, and Javier was more than willing to customize a meal for me that... More

I am from Chicago, and I went to visit my sister and her family, and they took me to Javier's for dinner. They promised me a great meal and I got it!! Javier's had a nice atmosphere, and the staff was very welcoming. We ordered some of the table-side guac and it was neat to see them make it right... More

To give you some idea of our experience with Mexican food, suffice to say we have eaten it in Mexico and throughout the southern west of the USA. And this restaurant is the best we have eaten at. The restaurant is very clean, attractive and hosted by the family with warmth and knowledge. Javier is from central Mexico and brings... More
