“Viva Mexico”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

If your intent is to find authentic Mexican food you are in the wrong country. My experiences thus far over the last year in Germany are that they make great German food. Makes sense huh? Those of us who've lived in the U.S in states along the southern border and sometime even a little farther north know that good Mexican food can cause a man to make hasty decisions. My time in San Antonio was enjoyable enough to make me consider retiring there. Schweinfurt is no San Antonio and Habaneros is par for German prepared Mexican food. The place is popular with the locals and was extremely busy for a work night when I visited with my co workers. It's alive and fun; if you didn't know what Mexican bars and restaurants were supposed to taste like then you'd never know it wasn't as good as back across the pond. I say try the place out with friends, knock back a few coronas or tequilas, and leave your previous notions of Mexican Food at the door; you'll have a good time and might even develop a taste for Germican. Get your pic taken with the giant pig out front if you have the tourist bug.

“Bland food, high prices”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011

I love Mexican food, but this was the only place nearby that offered it. Habaneros' Mexican food is bland and the most expensive I have found in any country for such fare. Obviously, mine is a minority opinion as the place is usually quite crowded. I can only guess that the popularity is due to its uniqueness. This appears to be a chain with a cookie-cutter approach to decor, food and service.
