As far as dinner goes - I would say it is average. I go there for a beer, chips & salsa, a game and maybe the $1 tacos while I'm watching.

The service at the restaurant is just amazing! We had our free starters at the table before even choosing what we wil order. We had 2 fajitas, with different meat. The portions are big and the quality of food is very-very good. Will definitely recommend!

We went to Javi's when driving home to the Bay Area. The service was okay and the food was also okay. Nothing to write home about given the amazing Mexican food you can find at Bay Area taquerias. We had the ceviche tostadas - I was expecting chunks of seafood but it was more like a purée. Not sure I'd... More

Good food stop for lunch on the way home from Yosemite. Huge portions and cost effective. Atmosphere isn't special but the service is friendly

My only complaint is the same one from last time. You see when all of us friends get together we are a large group. It can be around 25 total. Usually the only place that we can sit is in the bar area so the noise is not conducive with having comp versations. Although the food is still very good... More

My son and I ate at Javi's recently and we were pleasantly surprised. We had dined there a few years ago and thought it was okay. I liked the new fixtures and the menu which is extensive. The restaurant features a sports bar which is new since I was last there. Good service. We both had burritos and both patrons... More

We eat here frequently. The whole family loves it. My wife is especially fond of the Carnitas. My son loves the tacos. I rarely get the same thing, but I enjoy it all!
