“Guacamole good - the rest average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

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.

“A new favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

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.

“Good Happy Hour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

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 Happy Hour specials that are a good deal. Can't pass up the guacamole that is made table-side.

“Not Friend Focus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

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 meal/talk. Our waiter was cool recognizing the pace. We were at the end of the dinner when a different waiter showed up clearing the table of everything including water glasses asking if we needed anything else. We asked if he wanted us to leave, he just smiled and emptied the table of everything. We put the cash on the table including a 20% tip, the non waiter picked it up yelling "I finally got it" in the middle of the dining room. We get the need to churn and burn for tip purposes, but there was never a line nor was it over half full. We will never be back because of that service.
