I've eaten meals in the dining room, outside on the patio and taken out, the food is always delicious. I usually order the avocado lime salad with chicken or anyone of the quesadillas. The staff are friendly and the location is convenient. Great choice!

We enjoyed a great meal at Javier's and service was excellent. I enjoyed the scallop special which was outstanding. The drinks were perfect. Great atmosphere and staff. This is in an open mall area and there is valet and a large parking garage. Well worth the parking hassle.

I really recommend this restaurant, the food is very good, the place is awesome, if you want to have a nice brunch you should come to Taco Rosa, thanks to Mario the manager! He really care about customers, he was so kind to us and the waitresses are super helpful.
