Good Margaritas, good location, but overprice food

I went to Habanero's Mexican Kitchen a week ago for dinner. To my surprise I found out that the owner is the relative (brother) from Serrano's Mexican Rest owner in Waukesha (by the airport). Same MENU, but you get less food portion for $2-3 dollars more in most of the dishes. I rather go to... read more

This was my first visit and not my last, excellent service, wonderful large menu and great dinner. We sat at the bar for drinks and dinner that did us just right. I will return!

We've driven past this place so often and never stopped, because we already have a "home base" for our Mexican cravings. We were in the area so stopped last night for dinner. We were plesantly surprised. For being a restaurant in a strip mall, the inside was very nice. We loved that you can see into the kitchen and watch... More

A Cool Place: I mean that quite literally. During the winter season, if you are seated anywhere near the front entrance when the door opens you will feel a cool or cold blast of air. Be sure to ask for a booth or table away from the door. As for the food, we were very satisfied. I ordered a combination... More

This restaurant, semi-hidden in a strip mall off Mayfair Road, boasts a wide assortment of Mexican favorites. The food is very good here, though I agree with others that the tableside prepared fresh guacamole is the star of the show. They seem to overrate the 'heat' of their dishes. Both the guacamole and my steak with poblanos were supposed to... More

My husband had been wanting to take me here for months. I have a gluten intolerance and was a little concerned. I ordered the corn tortillas and have been fine. I am sure we will be back.

Really good poblano chimichanga. Mole sauce was excellent. Party of four promptly seated without reservations. Guacamole made at table side. Really good quality food and service. Goofy location in a shopping mall. Will be back.

Delightful food and great service. The table-side prepared guacamole is awesome. They have 4 or 5 different salsas of various FLAVORx and heat ranges.

I thought the food was only okay and it and the house margaritas were a bit pricy. On The Boarder is a better value even though it is a chain.

My coworker and I went today for lunch, what a disappointment! The tostadas were stale, the flour tortilla tacos were grilled, dry, and falling apart. The worst part was the ground beef. It had NO Mexican spices, it tasted exactly like beef stew and actually had big pieces of stewed onions in it. The salsa tasted like it came from... More
