Special treat to visit dear friends in Dallas and to get back to Javier's. Great food, service and atmosphere. Cigar bar experience however has gotten a bit too complex and not how I remembered it!

first of all, the service is the best part. You never are waiting for anything- but it is packed, noisy, and apparently my review won't matter because it is crowded everynight of the week. I just always wonder if I've ordered incorrectly because people think its such a big deal...and the food seems average. Great margaritas- and like I said... More

I've been many times here. Great food, extraordinary service. Good prices. And the best is the cigar bar after a great dinner. Plenty of cigar and a good selection of whiskies, cognacs and liquors. A must stop in every trip I made to Dallas. This time I smoked a #LaFlorDominicana and a #ZacapaXO . Perfect match. Thanks Javier's

Loved this famous place. Great food, interesting drinks and wonderful service. Valet parking. Looks like lots of the famous visit here also. Menu selection is creative.

This place is ridiculous. Granted, it's an entertaining scene -- packed with the ostentatiously wealthy; the kind of place where your Ferrari gets parked by the front door. Inside, the ambiance is nice enough, but the dining experience here is profoundly disappointing given the prices. With entrees that reach to the low thirties, you're seated in close quarters with loud,... More

I have heard that Javier's is THE Mexican restaurant to go to in Dallas. A Dallas establishment. Fantastic food. Great service. Great for special occasions. Fantastic atmosphere. Excellent service. But it might be a little pricey. But we should go! Every time we drive by it, the parking is full. It must be good. So, we decided to stop in... More

I went to Javier's for a business dinner. The service and staff were fantastic. This is one of the very few Mexican restaurants I've visited where the bartender knew how to make a Paloma! (Google it....you'll thank me later) The food and drink here are both very good. If you like key lime pie, Javier's has one of the best... More

Went with a huge group for a business dinner celebration, and the service was on point, with several staff members working in synchrony to make sure all our needs were met. The menu had a variety of gourmet Mexican dishes to choose from...no Tex-Mex here! We had a feast, with a sampler of appetizers and an assortment of main dishes,... More

Javier's is excellent. Simply the best true Mexican food in the USA! The entire staff is so nice and fun, they really make your dining experience amazing. There are plenty of bars to grab you favorite margarita, and the layout is awesome. Don't forget to stop at the cigar bar after!
