Love coming here for lunch. Now they have a punch card - buy 6 lunches and get the 7th free! Chips and salsa are delicious. I got the combo with an enchilada and chimi- a little too much sauce but good. Took a bit longer to get our bill than usual but I'll definitely be back.

We've been to Habanero's a number of times, and each time my expectations are exceeded. Wisconsinites aren't used to good restaurants housed in strip malls as they are in other parts of the country. Food is always fresh, and recipes usually have a little tweak to them to make them, and you can tell each dish is made to order--only... More

Once again it was time to use a coupon before it expired. Ordered margaritas which were tasty. However my interpretation of what a flavored on the rocks margarita was and how it got entered into the register resulted in a $1.25 difference. Which the server did correct but with a little attitude stating the menus needed to be redone. I... More

I always recommend this place to my friends. One of my favorite restaurants, definitely my favorite Mexican. Love the sauces! Fresh guacamole made right at your table fresh.

I got the 3-item lunch combo for 10$. It was very tasty but did not come with chips n salsa on the side as most restaurants do - i ordered extra and it jacked up my bill to 16$. Which I find a bit pricey. However, all in all the service and food was good. Much recommended place.

Enjoyed a great lunch today. Lunch was started off with chips and salsa. We ordered a half order of guacamole. My wife had the carnitas tacos(2). This came with Mexican rice and refried beans. I had 2 ground beef tacos that also came with Mexican rice and refried beans. I enjoyed my tacos so much that I added another. Great... More

Went to Habanero's with our Milwaukee family on a Saturday night. There were eight of us in all and we sat in the bar area. We were really impressed with how they made the guacamole at our table using the ingredients we requested. It was delicious. The staff was very attentive and very friendly. Between the eight of us, we... More

I've been to this restaurant a few times to make sure I just wasn't there on a bad night. I like the location because it is very close to my home. The food is more "American/Mexican" than Mexican. It is disappointingly high priced. I'd not recommend it.

Our family of three eats at a lot of Mexican restaurants, most of them once. We each enjoyed our entrees here enough that we will be back. Service was slow because we arrived before 5:00 pm (when the regular wait staff arrives) but the food came quickly. The corn on the cob was a fun and unusual appetizer.

Went to dinner with our family. We go to Puerto Vallarta for the winter so I'm never excited to eat Mexican food here in Milwaukee. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, beer prices very reasonable, wait staff very attentive and tableside Guacamole made to your taste was delicious, you get to pick what you want in it. Will... More
