Delicious Mexican food

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... read 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

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

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.
