Loving Mexican food, I was excited to visit Habanero's near the UC campus. Order at the counter and watch the food being made on the assembly line. I went with a friend and we each ordered a taco platter. As it was being made it seemed that only one platter was being prepared so I mentioned to the assembler that... More

Habanero's is located in the heart of Ludlow across from the CVS. The restaurant staff has grown and accomplished a lot of menu favorites since opening in Habanero has all usual vegetables and flavors but you can get different twists from cheese toppings, roasted and grilled vegetables, and various sauces. Try out various selections on $5 dollar burrito Monday $2... More

I have eaten here three times and each time i have found the food to be delicious and reasonable. It is a casual place where you order at counter. The burritos and tacos are good.

I love the build your own Veggie burrito, instead of meat I have sweet potatos. It is so good. It's prices fair, and it's very filling. Way better than chipotle.

Ok Mexican food, stand in line and order your food then wait as it goes through the assembly line. The fish tacos were so soggy it was hard to even pick up the tortilla. If you order the chimichanga be prepared to get it as the rest of the members in your party are finishing their meal. When my son... More

I must have drove by Habanero at least 500 times before finally stopping in. On the outside it looks like the bland, tired burrito restaurants that have followed in Chipotle's wake. On the inside was a fresh, friendly neighborhood hangout that's full of vibe, charm and most important flavor. My first time eating here I was taken aback by the... More

I enjoy Habanero, a good, tasty and inexpensive local option for burritos, tacos and other foods. 4 beers on tap, usually some local options. Tuesdays are my favorite - $2 Soft Tacos and $2 Dos Equis drafts. The tacos are big, so a couple are enough to fill me up.
