A++ guac

Definitely the best guacamole in Milwaukee - the only thing that keeps them from an excellent rating is that all the other food is highly disappointing!

The restaurant inside is very attractive and looks like Mexico. The prices are normal but the food was just ok. The fish tacos weren't what I thought they were going to be and we're too spicy. The chips n salsa they bring to the table were good and e also ordered a side of guacamole too, which was really good.... More

We went to this restaurant with a large group. We ordered margaritas at the bar, which were awesome! It went downhill from there. We ordered our food, and it took quiet a long time to get it. When our food was brought out, they had messed up two orders and somehow had an extra plate of food that didn't belong... More

This place used to be awesome! I like the fresh guacamole made table side, but my past two visits here have been awful!!! I placed a to go order for soft shell corn tacos. The girl on the phone was so busy rushing me off that she wrote soft shell taco despite my explaining what I wanted. I picked up... More

The food was okay but greasy. We had it to-go. The customer service was poor - all tied to the time I ordered. I thought I was ordering from the lunch menu. I was charged for a dinner. The way it was handled was less than satisfactory and left a bad taste in my mouth.

Had lunch here with my wife on Mar. 19th. We each had a lunch salad, different types. I also ordered an unsweetened iced tea, which seemed more like ice water that someone quickly dipped a tea bag into. Our salads were unremarkable. Mine supposedly had pieces of grilled Mexican chicken, but the few pieces I found hiding in the lettuce... More

We stopped on a Thursday night and ordered their patron margarita which is made with Patron and Grand Marnier and was very good. Definitely not the premix lemonade type of margarita. The salsa that came with the chips was good as was a side of chipotle salsa we ordered We ordered shrimp ceviche which was an original and tasty take... More

I have been here many times and I have never been disappointed. The table side guacamole is a must. The atmosphere is very relaxed and laid back. The food is great and comes out fast! A great place to go for good Mexican. Even better if you're in a hurry!

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 Serrano's because the food is... More
