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

Excellent Italian food in downtown Racine. A wide range offered and specials change daily. It's where we go when in Racine.

I love Javier's. If anyone in the group wants Mexican food, this is the place to go! The chips and salsa are food. They serve gluten-free. Great family-run restaurant.

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
