Good eating

Prices are good for the serving size, food was very good, it's right in between Mexican and American style food, good quality. Most of the staff is friendly, there's just a bad apple, but the rest is worth the visit, good ambiance and different things on the menu make it a good place to take... read more

From the outside Habanero Hots hides the great experience you are about to receive one you enter. Pass through the simple entrance and you leave Lodi and have arrived in Mexico. A wide variety of hot sauces greets you before the hopping small bar area. Beyond that the restaurant is a maze of rooms all decorated to make you feel... More

There are many other spots in town with food and prices better than this place. The salsa is only ok but the food leaves much to be desired. I won't be back anytime soon if at all.

We were welcomed warmly at the front and seated quickly . Our waitress had our drinks on the table moments after we were seated. Chips and salsa were brought to our table shortly after. The enchiladas we ordered were good but the platter they were served on was very hot and my date burned herself even though we were told... More

and they not only did separate checks, but the service over-all was very good, as was the food! The usual large portions, which make for lovely left-overs if you aren't a big eater! The only draw-back is the acoustics in the back room. It is very hard to have a conversation if there are lots of people in that room.... More

Got the #5 dinner. Taco and beef tips were great, chicken enchilada was good, chile relleno was so so. I would go back for the beef tips alone. Service was okay but nothing special. I would go back.

I have been eating here for years, the food is consistently good. I especially like their house salad dressing. When my food comes, I toss my salad on top and eat it all mixed up. They have some good desserts too, but I'm usually too full to order dessert. I came here for my birthday and was even greeted by... More

My wife and I finally got around to trying this place, having heard good things. Simply put, this is a completely ordinary, average, run-of-the-mill chain Mexican restaurant. Our meals were bland, flavors indistinct and just like a hundred other boring Mexican meals we have had a any number of Mexican places. There is SO much Mexican food around, and most... More

We've been here numerous times over the years. Lunch, dinner and parties. The menu seems to have something for each persons taste. I try something different each time we go there. They have a large banquet room also. The food is good but swimming in too much sauce for me, and chef is heavy handed with the cumin spice. But... More
