Had a lunch date with my elderly mother. The beans were burned and after 2 bites, inedible. They turned my stomach. The carnitas tacos (pulled pork) was spoiled. My mother had an upset stomach for the rest of the day. The rice was bland. Salsa was ok, but not something to return for. The restaurant had an odd odor, which... More

This restaurant is rarely crowded and may not look as trendy as some Mexican eateries, but in my experience, the food has never disappointed. It is tasty and the service has been good. I can usually find a coupon that saves $7 on food for two or more persons. One downside is that during the winter you may want to... More

Not sure why they get such bad reviews on here as we've been going for over 15 years and have never had a bad meal. Their salsa isn't my favorite but it's good. It really helps flavor their rice which I do find to be bland. I'm not a fan of refried beans but I will eat their beans. I... More

I was surprised how good the Mexican cuisine was after walking into the restaurant. A safe choice with really good food and friendly service.

First the smell once entering should have been the clue to leave right away. I don't know if it was the carpet on the floor or coming from the kitchen. The menu is extensive so there was a good selection. My wife had the fajitas, usually a safe bet for Mexican, but, as has been the case everywhere we've eaten... More

We arrived at Javier's to eat lunch. The first person barely spoke english. The second person took our order, brought our food and never checked on us again. She was constantly on her cell phone. There was only one other couple in the restaurant so that should have been a warning... the food was mediocre at best. I ordered the... More

I went to Javier's for lunch with about 10 coworkers. I think everyone ordered different items, but as I looked across when we received our meal, the dishes all looked the same. The food was covered in beans and cheese. I tried ordering the shrimp salad, no sour cream and no cheese, but it was little more than shrimp and... More
