    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.

    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
  • 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

    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 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!

    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
