Good independent Tex-Mex / Latin food

I always enjoyed Habanero, but I recently discovered their BBQ chicken, which I think is great in their tacos and burritos. Monday is $5 burritos all day and Tuesday they have $2 tacos, buth yummy!

I've only had burritos from more extensive menu. Food is fresh and each burrito is made to order: you stand there and tell them what to include. It's perfect for impulse eating. I've only used carryout. I have no idea what sit-down is like but it's the same menu. My favorite is shredded pork in the burrito.

I've discovered that I love the BBQ Chicken option in the Burritos and Tacos. I really like the special nights ($5 Burrito Monday and $2 Taco Tuesday.) The Roasted Squash filling is a tasty meat-alternative. A few beers on tap, too.

I know a lot of people like Habanero, but I just can't seem to find anything I like there. The burritos don't have much flavor, mostly due to the salsa and lack of seasoning in general. and the chicken I've tried has been tough and stringy. I haven't seemed to find anything that I really enjoy.

My wife and I were looking for someplace different for lunch and found ourselves in this local Mexican restaurant. It was counter service in a college town and we each ordered a different burrito. I got beef and my wife chicken. It was nice and crispy and surprising served on a bed of red-sauce, almost reminding me of a pasta... More

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
