The food is wonderful. The owner, Javier is a master at creating the very best dishes. He was the head chef at another place that was going under till he took over. Now the place is one of the most popular because of his recipes. He moved on to open his own place and has had to move to a... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant is pretty nice. We were greeted by a pleasant hostess. Chips and guacamole were great however the entrees were only ok.

It started with a friendly young hostess and her sister, a delightful waitress! Great chips and salsa and fajitas. But best of all was chicken a la parrella, chicken and vegetables with a great lemony buttery sauce! I highly recommend it!

I've eaten here several times and usually with a large family crowd....and everyone liked what they had. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The menu is varied so everyone finds a favorite. Not a fancy overdone atmosphere, but good food at a good price.

I agree with the high ratings. Javier is a real chef, and this is the place to go if one wants a Mexican restaurant that ranges beyond the customary TexMex cuisine common in this area. Service is quick and friendly. This is an informal restaurant, family friendly, but not cheap eats. Remember that it's closed on Sundays.

My entire family enjoys eating at Javier's. The food is authentic and the complementary chips and salsa is the best we have ever had! The staff is always friendly and willing to please. A wonderful family owned restaurant with exquisite dishes to offer their customers. The place is extremely clean and family-friendly.
