Ate lunch there with another worker and had the shrimp tacos with rice. Shrimp was plentiful and grilled with some great spices served with lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream.

I really used to enjoy eating at Habaneros but after today I won't be back. I ordered the #15. Before my food arrived I ate some of the chips. They tasted as if they were cooked several days ago. Then when my entree arrived the rice and beans had an old taste to them too. Needless to say, I won't... More

My order was not complicated(one of the lunch specials) Also, this is the only Mexican restaurant in Hoover and surrounding areas(that I know of) that doesn't offer "Happy Hour" drink specials. I...

Well......you'd think with a name like Habaneros, we would be in store for some flavor. This food has no flavor, it's the most bland, boring and tasteless crap you'll ever spend hard earned money on. I mean they brown the meat and serve it, no spices, no onions, no peppers and browned meat is fairly gross on it's own. Luckily... More

Food was good although the tortilla was a little chewy - over exposure in the microwave? - service was fast,attentive and meal was hot. Pretty typical of the Mexican restaurants in Birmingham.
