Javier, nice dude. – I always enjoy having lunch at Javier's. I always bring friends to try it and they all liked it. I like the chicken enchiladas with red sauce or green (tomatillo sauce). Most people like the burritos. He has a different special everyday. One is a seafod burrito with sausage similar to a Jambalaya, and some other Mexican variations.
Javier is a great guy, great friend and a great latin dancer (and decent soccer player). Women like to dance with him in the fiestas! He also organized my bachelor party.
He also has some Mexican drinks you may want to try. Agua de Jamaica and Horchata.
They are never rude to the customers, its just that at lunch time sometimes its a little crazy and lines may be a little long. Its just rush hour.
Currently our favorite latino restaurant in Cincinnati! – My wife and I are gringos who love latin dance, food and culture. In the last ten years we have visited just about every latino restaurant in the Cincinnati area, and Javier's has become our favorite. The food is wonderful, not pretentious, just wonderful flavor. The service is always impeccable and the staff is incredibly friendly, always going the extra mile to make our experience perfect. We have never had anything but a marvelous experience at Javier's and I can't say that about most of the other latino restaurants. Once Javier even gave us a tour of his new place and showed us the kitchens and food prep areas. I couldn't believe how clean everything was! Everyone there was so friendly! Everytime we go we have a wonderful meal and a great time. Buen Provecho!
Worst Customer service I have experienced in a long time! – While the food might be mediocore at best, the service is horrible. When ordering you better know what you want and be ready to answer a series of questions in lightning time. Forget asking them to hold anything...because you will be barked at.....
When I go out to eat, even if it's a casual lunch I do not want a rude, unfriendly experience. I felt rushed along and to be honest, the food is just not worth it. I will not be back.
