Excellent!

Very authentic and delicious, typical New Mexican food at it's best. The owner was very friendly and polite. There were five of us, we all ordered something different and each was equally good. Try their Chile Colorado with meat Plate or the Carne Asada burrito. Each meal begins with a cup of... read more

Restaurant is overpriced and food is not authentic. Owner was rude. If you want real quality food go to Nellie's or Cocina on Solano.

We went in yesterday for dinner. Food was good. The owner/chef helped us at the counter. He was so rude and unwelcoming. I didn't hear what he asked me, so he started yelling at me as if I was stupid. I will never go here again. Owners should never treat their customers the way he treated us. I couldn't wait... More

I was looking for some authentic food while traveling through New Mexico and this delivered. Nice, spice bean and pasta starter soup that comes with entrees. Friendly, bilingual staff. Good lunch specials with large portions. Tasty verse chicken with good beans and passable rice. Dining room gets warm though. Nice stop off I-10 or I-25 in Las Cruces.

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.
