Habenaro's serves the typical dishes you would find in most Mexican restaurants in this area, serving everything from burritos to enchiladas to tacos. Chips are served when you are seated. Their menu is quite extensive for both lunch and dinner. Their combination dinners are my favorite, which allow me to sample different types of Mexican entrées. Being located in the... More

We usually go to the Habaneros in Longwood, but since we were closer to the Mall location, we went there. The taco chips tasted rancid. I don't think the oil had been changed for awhile. Will drive the extra distance to go to a different location.

Went wandering. Came upon this great hotel bungalow complex and pool/restaurant/bar. Lunch was perfect. Invited back for happy hour so we did! Watched the sunset, drinks were two for one. Wandered the beach, washed our feet off, used the clean facilities and got in our car. Ease, Beauty, Friendly, and Kindness all the essences we were looking for.

We stopped in here while at the mall. The food is some of the worst we've had in quite some time. We figured since the restaurant was busy that it couldn't be that bad. We were wrong. The queso had the consistency of milk right out of the container, and the beef in the tacos and enchiladas was not good.... More

Our favorite Mexican restaurant closed a few weeks ago, so we decided to give Habanero's a try for lunch. While we like the consistency with chains, the quality often suffers. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and the food we ordered was very good, their salsa is very good as well. We will go back.

If you're ever at or near the Seminole Towne Center, stop in here for the most delicious mexican food. Hopefully you can get a seat by the window so you can people watch as you eat. All the food is excellent starting with the free chips and salsa, almost as soon as you sit down and receive your menu. I... More

We visit this restaurant often, love their Pollo a la mexicana, very hot and spicy plate. Their service is excellent and you can't beat their 2 for 1 delicious margaritas. Plenty of food to select, great bar, and nice restaurant decoration. If you want to have a good place to have a good time with friends, this is the place.... More

Took my family here on a Friday night. Restaurant was almost empty. Music was very loud. Service was non existent. Food was decent but overpriced. Will not return.

Although service was good and efficient, was not impressed with the food. We ordered carnitas which tasted like they were sitting in the pot for a while. The refried beans were bland and so was the rice. Not impressed at all.
