Pleasant and typical Mexican restaurant atmosphere. Very good chips and excellent salsa. I knew I was going to do all right. Some wait staff do not speak English. I ordered a cheese chili relleno and black beans. (The only vegetarian beans they have). The beans were very tasty, the rice was excellent and the chip relleno a had a very... More

We were driving near Mayfair looking for a place to eat and noticed this place on Google maps. When we pulled up, the strip mall appearance was scary and we almost didn't go in. Happily it is pleasant inside and did remind me of restaurants in Playa Del Carmen in Mexico. Nice murals and tile - although showing its age.... More

It was December and time to use the Entertainment coupons nearing expiration. We were going to Mayfair and looking for a lunch place. What a find!!! Great atmosphere. Attentive service. Reasonably priced food. Good portion size. Food served hot and flavorful. They also serve dinner. We will definitely return again even if we don't have a coupon. Seriously the food... More

We went into Habanero's for the first time in a while for lunch today. It has always been one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. We placed our order and I asked for cheese sauce on my quesadilla. He asked, "on the side?" and I said "that's fine" (thinking he meant that they just wouldn't pour it on top of the... More

Our frozen strawberry margarita was awful. The steak on the nachos was too tough to eat so we didn't touch them. When we complained about the nachos our waitress told us too bad. She didn't offer to try something else or to take the nachos off the bill. My burrito was nothing special. The black beans were good. After the... More

Definitely the best guacamole in Milwaukee - the only thing that keeps them from an excellent rating is that all the other food is highly disappointing!

The restaurant inside is very attractive and looks like Mexico. The prices are normal but the food was just ok. The fish tacos weren't what I thought they were going to be and we're too spicy. The chips n salsa they bring to the table were good and e also ordered a side of guacamole too, which was really good.... More

We went to this restaurant with a large group. We ordered margaritas at the bar, which were awesome! It went downhill from there. We ordered our food, and it took quiet a long time to get it. When our food was brought out, they had messed up two orders and somehow had an extra plate of food that didn't belong... More
