“Middle of the Road Mexican”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

My last visit to Habaneros was a year ago. The salsa is good. The chips are sturdy (heavy rather than thin). The service was very prompt despite a rather full restaurant. This is a nice place for middle-of-the-road Mexican. It's good food but there is nothing that makes you say, wow this is great/exceptional/unique.

“In Texas, We're used to free chips & salsa. Didn't get that here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2010

The food was okay - even good. Loved the Fishbowl Frozen Margarita - excellent! The chips were thick, not the thin kind that I like. And I couldn't get over actually had to order & pay for them. Guess I'm spoiled. All-in-all, we were satisfied with our meal even though it was not extraordinary & service was somewhat slow. Next time I'll try the home-made tamales.

“There are better places than this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2009

Now I remember why we don't go here. It has terrible service! The food is decent but it isn't anything spectacular that you can't get somewhere else. Service is SLOW - slow to greet, slow to get drinks, slow to refill, slow to take your order, slow to deliver, slow to bring your check--- catching on to a pattern? They won't bring you any stupid chips and salsa until you have placed your dinner order. We were waiting for the rest of our group to arrive and had all ordered beers so we had a tab going and they wouldn't give us any stupid chips until we ordered dinner!! Really?!?! It's not like we were teenagers ordering water hoping to score some free chips. Do kids even do that?! Anyways, save yourself a disappointment and go to another place in the area that has better service.
