We live only a few miles from El Molino! You will not find better Mexican food than at Javier's! We've known them since they opened the restaurant in 2002! We eat there frequently - at least once a week on a Thursday or Friday night! GREAT FOOD!!!

The Poblano Rellenos with beans and rice are to... More

It is not fancy, it is old, the food is consistently very good, the service is just perfect, and they are nice to us. I can ask no more!
