“Excellent Mexican food with a twist”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

So, it is a great Mexican restaurant without a doubt. But it has something else than other Mexican places besides the great food - first of all the tortilla soup - they kinda of prepare it in front of you which is really nice. They do the same with the Guacamole (the Guacamole Queen is in charge of this - a young lady that prepares the Guacamole in front of you). Besides the food, I loved the T-shirt of Javier's brother-in-law and how happy everyone on the staff is here. It puts you in a good mood. Excellent place! Highly recommended, and we're quite picky with our Mexican food.

“Great food! Friendly atmosphere.”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

My husband and I usually try to stop by Javier's at least once a week. We both love their magaritas and fajita fingers! I also love their autumn soup and fried ice cream! Javier is always coming up with new inovative and delicious specials. All the servers and staff are very friendly and attentive. All and all a very satisfying dining experience!

“Citri-xellent!! and GF”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

The perfect summer blend of tart citrus pineapple, crisp greens, soft cheese, crunchy pecans, and grilled chicken topped with a melt in you mouth citric vinagrette makes the Citrus Salad a MUST enjoy - every time we try a new Javier dish it seems incredible he could have outdone himself when each new entry provides such a wonderful taste delight!

“Most Accomodating”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

What a pleasant surprise it was to find this restaurant. We live at the Marina during the summer and like to try out places in Racine. Decided to try it and it has become our "go to" place for dinner almost every weekend. Food is fantastic - specials are unique and fun to try. It is not uncommon to call for a table of 8+ people and we haven't been turned away yet. The family atmosphere is warm and I love getting to know all of them. Mrs. Javier always finds a place for us at the table. I recommend having the margarita's and the fajitas - Javier even will make them special for people with food restrictions. It's definitely one of Racine's best gems.

I live in Whitefish Montana and once a year we go back to Racine to visit family. Javiers is my favorite place to eat. The food is amazing and the family atmosphere great.
