If you are looking for Tex Mex, look no further than Javier's. The menu is outstanding with strong recommendations for the beef enchilada, flautas, chimichanga.

Wonderful drinks and dinner. Quick service but not rushed. Will be going back again soon. Sangria margarita was the best!

The large menu covers all the standard Mexican dishes, very well done. I love mole, and their three options are all good. The chicken in mole sauce is delicious, with lots of delicious, moist chicken. You get your choice of 2 sides ( I'd pass...More
