“Good Happy Hour”
3 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“Best Mexican food around.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

Excellent margaritas. I love their tableside guacamole: they have several different kinds, and they're all wonderful! Portions are of a pretty good size, after sharing a guac, my husband and i usually both end up bringing half of our entree home. My favorites are the Oaxaca burrito or enchiladas colima. Reasonable prices for excellent Mexican food.
