By far the best food in town! Our waitress Nancy makes the best table side guacamole ever! The steak and portabella quesadilla was amazing and the seafood burrito, omg! Salsa, the best! I could go on forever! Love this place!

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.

The food is amazing every time I eat here. I really enjoy the pollo ala Padilla. It is one of my many favorites at javiers. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I definitely recommend this place! My server Jaden was very nice and prompt. The Christmas log is a must have for dessert. You have to make sure you leave... More

Gluten friendly, family friendly restaurant. I have a gluten allergy, and they take it seriously. They are more than willing to alter a menu item to make it gluten free. Our food tonight was delicious as always and our server Nancy was terrific.

Slow Thursday night meal about 5pm. We had a party of four and we were seated right away. The server came and took our drink order, brought those quickly, then disappeared for about 10-15 minutes. Took our dinner order, and it took another 15 minutes for our food to arrive. Will never return.

Quick summary: Tasty food including Tex-Mex and more authentic Mexican dishes. Moderate prices. Friendly, helpful service. I met a friend for dinner here for the first time. The menu has a nice mix of Tex-Mex and more authentic Mexican dishes e.g. chicken or shrimp in a garlic or chipotle cream sauce, polo con mole, served with veges. Our shrimp and... More
