Service was good. Plenty of chips and salsa. Wood was OK. Nothing special.

“Javier's is a local classic”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

Javier's is the best Mexican food you will find in the Ogden area. Javier was born in Mexico and migrated here with his family. He has a strong local history and you cannot go into his restaurant without seeing local events and newspaper clippings on the walls. There will always be someone you know in one of the booths and the food is predictably good, every time. His local story can be read here: http://www.javiersmexicanfood.com/javiers-story/ It's a good one and worth a read.

The food is always plentiful, it's made fresh and it's too spicy. There is always a bottle of cholula on the table if you want a little more heat. It's nice having a place to take the whole family and not have to worry about spice level. This was my granddaughter's favorite restaurant when she was just three years old.

This restaurant has good food, is a great value and a major community supporter. What's not to love?

Free chips and salsa.
Not gourmet Mexican food by any means but it is good food.

Consistency as well. The food is always good. Not like other some other restaurants where it's good one time bad the next.

Good atmosphere. Friendly waitresses and pretty fast getting your food.
