    Authentic Mexico City cuisine with a fun vibe. Their margaritas won't disappoint, and they have a cigar bar if you're into that! Only place I've seen that serves butter with their chips and salsa. :)

    True Mexico City gourmet Mexican food. This place has been around for years and it's no surprise why. The entire menu is delicious, but it would be a mistake not to order the Filete Cantinflas.

    The Escalope Cordon Azul (stuffed veal) is to die for. Ask for Eddie #2 (since there's 2 Eddies)...he's absolutely amazing and has been serving my family and I since 2003.

    Try the margaritas. And if you're into cigars, ask about their selection. There's also a flaming drink that's pretty cool to see - and tasty too.

    Try some fish dishes. Mi Amigo, Javier, is good at what he does. A verynice guy—a Tejas fisherman. I’d say his place is in the top two for Continental Mexico City, GourmetMexicano in Dallas...still!
  • The Wall Street Journal
    They serve traditional-but-fancy Mexican, like Filete Pimienta and Pechuga de Pollo a la Parilla. The maitre'd always has a cool car parked out front. Read more

    Since 1977 Javier's has been a Mexican classic in Dallas, one that sneers at Tex-Mex in favor of sophisticated Mexico City cuisine. Read more

    I could not rave enough about the Filete Cantinflas, the smoked chicken nachos or salsa Verde. It is to die for!!!

    The Filete Cantinflas, Smoked chicken nachos & Mexican Martini are a must! And be sure to have a pre/post dinner drink in the handsome cigar bar.

    Though 30 years old, Javier's is still ridicuously popular among Park Cities' elite. Recipes come straight from Mexico City, and are best washed down with a Mexican Martini. Read more

    OMG! The Cheese panela are really good. Just make sure you get the corn tortilla instead the fake flour style.

    Get the Sangrita shot, hidden gem. Order tequila and it is an extra drink that accompanies it. You will like it guaranteed or I'll buy you a margarita!

    Disappointed: the filete Cantinflas is a thin piece of steak with lots of cheese. The corn and flour tortillas were store bought and tasteless. Food taste was plain/ordinary for a 29.00 entree.
