seemingly a historic favorite in Highland Park. But to me his Ferrari poked in his reserved spot says it all ..
I am here to make lot's of money. the waiter wasted no time in getting our drink order in and at ordering the entree was there in about 5 minutes which says to me every thing is pre-cooked to almost a fast food operation.

so this was our second and last time ...

We enjoyed authentic, tasty Mexican fare and outstanding service at Javier’s. Large portions and nice, cozy atmosphere. The food was exceptional.

I think the atmosphere in the restaurant is fine but the food was average. The service was very fast, really almost too fast. I kept thinking they were going to take the fork out of my mouth on my last bite so that they could clear the table and seat other patrons. They wanted to constantly take our chips and salsa and literally asked three times if we were finished even though we weren't. I don't like restaurants that are really slow but I felt like I was being hurried through my entire meal. I had a long day at work and wanted to relax a bit at dinner. As mentioned, the food was okay but nothing to write home about.

Javier's is always packed! The restaurant and the cigar bar. It has been a Dallas favorite for decades and still keeps going. Don't miss the cheese panella or the cantiflas, pure perfection!

A group of 8 friends and my husband took me to Javier’s for my birthday celebration on Saturday night. We had a private dining room and Ozzie really did a great job serving us. He kept the cocktails flowing and got our appetizers out quickly. We had the Ceviche (always my choice), the Guacamole and the Cheese Panela (as delicious as in restaurants in Mexico). The majority of our 10 person group ordered on of the five Filetes on the menu with the Cantinflas being the favorite. The Garlic Shrimp entree was also very well received.
The key lime pie and the crepes were both wonderful desserts. I cannot wait to return.

Thank JoInTexas
