mole enchiladas

Not everyone will appreciate the taste of their mole sauce but I think it is absolutely fabulous! Almost always my must have dish when we go eat there.

This place has the best Mexican food in Las Cruces! Everything I've ever had is excellent. Get the Fiesta plate as an entrée... You won't be disappointed.

Went here for a genuine New Mexican meal. I had the chicken mole, husband had mucho burrito. He couldn't finish the Huge burrito- said it was great. The mole was very good- best I've had in a long time. Everyone gets the Welcome soup- a little spicy but very good. The owner comes around often to check that everything is... More

We got the enchilada plates (red salsa and green salsa) and a cheese quesadilla. The food was good (enchiladas were pretty spicy, which was gone for us, but may be to much for other), but it was more expensive than I expected from a place where you order at a counter and get bring the food out. We also got... More

Always fresh and healthy food that also tastes marvelous. After five (5) weeks in Mexico eating authentic cuisine, we could not wait to get back to Habanero's for the best. Clean surroundings, plenty of space, great service, and the welcome soup is always a great complement.

We were in the area for 1 night and checked out Trip Advisor for mexican restaurant reviews. This one sounded interesting and the menu posted there looked good, too. When we entered the restaurant, the entree menu on the board was substantially higher. We ordered the chips/salsa, chili con queso and a 3 item combination plate. Our combination plate consisted...

We ate here after reading reviews during an overnight stay in Las Cruces. The restaurant is clean and the staff friendly. Orders are made at the counter and then served to your table. My husband ordered fajitas and said they were excellent. I ordered the chicken tostado, and although very good, was not the best I have been served. They... More

I just had to try them out at their new location. I had their taco plate and was disappointed and should have chosen one of their burritos which have always great. The new location is very attractive and is a part of the historical heritage of southern New Mexico. I will go back for my regular burrito plate

Read great reviews and so we went. Had the cheese enchiladas--which were at best--average. Service was fine but all and all the place was not memorable

We found this gem last year (couple days after Christmas) on a trip to White Sands. We loved it so we ate there twice last year. This year we came down again but unfortunately they were closed on Sunday (we did end up eating at and loving Los Mariachis). This year we came back from White Sands just for Brunch... More
