Very helpful waitress talked us through the vast menu and cocktail specials ($2 each!). One combo between two of us was plenty after the free chips with chilli sauce and pickles.

Good food, great service and a bar with too many tv's to count. Free chips, salsa, bean dip and what I can only describe as a mexican coleslaw to start with. Their prices are very good for all that you get. I wouldn't consider the food spicy, but it was definitely hot and fresh off of the grill.

It was close to our hotel, so decided to give a try. They offer free appetizers before you order. We had a combo set of 4 choises of your own to share for 2. It was good and absolutely enough for us two. Beers are of a right price. Place was packed around 7 pm. Service was very friendly and... More

Quite spicy but service was fast and efficient. Cocktails 2 dollars on Monday and Wednesday. Close to the Best Western.

As far as dinner goes - I would say it is average. I go there for a beer, chips & salsa, a game and maybe the $1 tacos while I'm watching.

The service at the restaurant is just amazing! We had our free starters at the table before even choosing what we wil order. We had 2 fajitas, with different meat. The portions are big and the quality of food is very-very good. Will definitely recommend!

We went to Javi's when driving home to the Bay Area. The service was okay and the food was also okay. Nothing to write home about given the amazing Mexican food you can find at Bay Area taquerias. We had the ceviche tostadas - I was expecting chunks of seafood but it was more like a purée. Not sure I'd... More

Not the best Mexican restaurant. But cheap. Not a lot of flavor. There are better taco trucks in the area that are so much greater.
