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

The table side guacamole is excellent; the rest of the menu choices were average at best. Service was adequate; atmosphere was nice - just no entrees that caused me to look forward to coming back.

Unimpressive location in a strip mall but serves some of the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. Order the house special shrimp and scallops dish absolutely fantastic! Margaritas are good too and everthing is made fresh. I will be back here often.

We visit Habanero's every couple months because it's a good meeting place for friends. The bar has a fun atmosphere and the patio is off the busy highway and laid back. Service is often slow and we've had to ask for service or water several times. But the food is good, the drinks even better. The bar and patio offer... More

I have been here quite a few times before & the service and food was fantastic. Friday night was the most embarrassing service I have ever received and will not return. Our initial waiter was great. My friend & I meet once every 4-5 months & have an early dinner (4:30 pm) which probably will turn into a 2 hour... More

Excellent margaritas. I love their tableside guacamole: they have several different kinds, and they're all wonderful! Portions are of a pretty good size, after sharing a guac, my husband and i usually both end up bringing half of our entree home. My favorites are the Oaxaca burrito or enchiladas colima. Reasonable prices for excellent Mexican food.

If you like food with more authentic flavors and a little (or alot if your willing) of spice then this place is for you. They have a bar area on one side with tables you could eat at, or a dining area on the other. We have to eat at this place at least every couple of weeks (it's a... More
