Pretty typical

Food was good although the tortilla was a little chewy - over exposure in the microwave? - service was fast,attentive and meal was hot. Pretty typical of the Mexican restaurants in Birmingham.

Food OK--Terrible service! 2:30PM on a weekday--not crowded at all. I had to wait a very long time just to get order taken. Then, another wait for food. My order was not complicated(one of the lunch specials) Also, this is the only Mexican restaurant in Hoover and surrounding areas(that I know of) that doesn't offer "Happy Hour" drink specials. I...

Well......you'd think with a name like Habaneros, we would be in store for some flavor. This food has no flavor, it's the most bland, boring and tasteless crap you'll ever spend hard earned money on. I mean they brown the meat and serve it, no spices, no onions, no peppers and browned meat is fairly gross on it's own. Luckily... More

My first visit to the restaurant was pleasant. The second visit was horrible. My sister ordered a burger. When she got about 1/3 of the way through she saw red meat. We spoke with the woman who seated us. She took the plate back. When she came back she brought back the same hamburger on a new bun. She had... More

We have be to this restaurant several times in the past but this was the worst! It ended up costing us around $50 and all we got was a plate of chips, a few pieces of steak and little cheese for steak nachos. We had to order extra cheese for our nachos that we had to pay for. And the... More

Yes, the decorations are cool, but thats about it. We had a party of 8, they wouldn't do separate tickets, and had us pay separately, at the register, off of 1 bill, and she overcharged almost everyone because she couldn't keep track of what was paid for and what wasn't. 2 of the food orders were screwed up, and we...

Food is always good, not the best I've ever had, but good for mexican food. I have been going there for years and they always have a great health rating (usually 100), good service, and a nice atmosphere.

It is so very colorful that if you have small children they would LOVE it. I almost wish I wasn't on a date with my hubby so we could have brought our 10 month old. He would have been ecstatic! The queso was excellent! Really great flavor and strong! And the service was impeccable! We had our drinks, chips, and... More
