Javier's has gotten some good reviews lately, so we decided to try it. I like the family-owned atmosphere, and the staff were nice. The enchiladas were good, though I wouldn't say they were my favorite in the area. The salsa that came with the chips, however, was absolutely terrific! They have a gluten free menu and can also make beef... More

I have been eating at Javier's for several years and the food is always excellent. They offer creative specials along side both traditional Tex-Mex and Mexican standards. They recently moved to a new location that has plenty of seating and excellent atmosphere.

I've been to Javier's about four times since my last review in 2012. They have gotten better with age and the new location is much better than the old one. Their fish tacos... ahhhmaaazzinngg!! The wait is a bit long, but they are always busy whenever we go in there, so its expected I suppose. I will be going back... More

Beyond a doubt this is the best mexican restaurant in town. The staff is very friendly. Nice atmosphere. The food is excellent. They make the guacamole right in front of you. Its a place you dont want to miss. Big portions, fresh food.

The sangria wine alone is a reason to go to Javiers in Racine. I wish they would bottle it. The food is just as good!

We have eaten here for many years. We have introduced many people to their restaurant. We have never been disappointed. They are always friendly and treat us like we are family. The food is always excellent and the service is great too. We usually go on week nights when it isn't too crowded. Prices are good and servings are generous.... More

I had dinner here recently with my wife and really enjoyed the experience. As soon as I saw the menu I knew that unless this visit was a disaster that I would be back, because there were so many intriguing items available. There are many fusion items to choose from but I went 100% Mexican and tried the beef burrito.... More

We have been eating here for quite some time. The owners are very friendly and make you feel welcome. The waitstaff is knowledgable and take your order quickly and correctly. The food is very good and also looks good. The cook takes pride in presentation. They just don't throw the food on your plate like other places. The food comes... More

We always like Javier's when it was on Durand Ave. When they moved to a new location, a bit further from us, and changed their lunch hours to just evening hours, we just never seemed to get back there. Well, we finally made it and what a nice surprise it was! From the outside, it doesn't look like a Mexican... More
