Family-owned and ran, my husband and I always enjoy our visits to Javier's. I love that you can make a reservation, even for small parties. Fresh chips and salsa are always good and complimentary. Well-priced for the portion.

Although somewhat quaint and small, they have a full-service bar and great service. This is a family owned and run Mexican restaurant and the owner is also the head chef. He has learned from the best and has some amazing daily specials in addition to all the usual Mexican dishes you would expect.

Jayden our waitress was a delight! Our food & drinks, delicious. We enjoyed their 'leg lamp' from Christmas Story & photos on the wall. We also spoke to Javier & his wife. Will look forward to eating there again.

Our waitress, Jaden, was obviously sold on her menu and her bright enthusiasm made choosing the right menu items easy. I am not generally one to go for Mexican cuisine, but these dishes were amazing and I can't wait to go back,. Thank you!

This is a great place for family and friends. The service has always been good for us. One thing I love is the Salsa which I always ask for a bowl because the little cup is to small. The one thing this restaurant is screaming for is décor and that would make it so much better.
