I don't usually get food here because I don't like the fact that they press the burritos on the grill AFTER they are wrapped... So usually I go to Burrito Jax. But I was in a rush and it was near, so I got a...vegetarian burrito bowl. It was fine, but the black beans were hard. Not cooked all the way through. I didn't finish it because I thought uncooked beans wouldn't be too safe to eat. Hopefully the uncooked beans was just a one time mistake. The real problem was the bathroom - the toilet was so disgusting I actually laughed out loud. Bits of hair all over and caked-on, dark urine. And it looked like it had been there for days. It was really disgusting. There were three employees behind the counter, chatting and not doing much of anything. Again, maybe just a one time mistake. But I think I'll stick with Burrito Jax.More

one of our favorite quick-serve food places. We also have to have a visit to Habaneros every time we return to Halifax.

Great choices and the people were very helpful in explaining how things worked. There is actually two places in one Habenaros and curds. Curds fries are amazing and the habanero burgers and burritos are huge

For your quick Mexican food fix this certainly is the place to stop. My first time here and I was really impressed. Food was prepared quickly and was extremely tasty. Will definitely be back. If you like Mexican you should stop here.

The place is bright and cheery when you walk in. The staff are extremely polite, friendly and helpful. The food, however, was pretty bland. The veggies were not that fresh, and the flavors just weren't there. It wasn't horrible, but it was nothing you couldn't...make yourself at home. I probably won't go back.More

Great place for lunch if you are looking for Mexican food. The portions are generous (lots of napkins at the tables!) and you certainly won't go hungry. The food is very tasty and a good value.

Great flavors! If you are looking for fresh, this is the place. Tacos are great, staff is friendly. Only bad thing I must say: the guacamole... it need serious improvement.

Thank you very much Elizabeth, we appreciate you taking the time to review your experience. We're at a loss about your guacamole comments? It's made fresh in house daily, and very popular. Maybe we had an off day? ~Mike

I like the food at Habaneros but I was ignored today. I know they were busy after a busy lunch but no one apologized for letting me stand there 10 minutes while they restocked. As well, I am tired of the manager always having a...scowl on his face. I think if you are in enough you would get a warmer welcome than he presents. The owner at Taco Del Mar never had anything but a smile on his face. I will eat where I am welcomed - Taco Del Mar.More

The chicken burrito bowls here are really good. I love their pickled onions especially, and the other great assortment of fresh ingredients to put on them. They recently changed their cheese, and it isn't as good as the previous cheese they used to use. It...seems cheaper or something. Their guacamole was brown, and not very good the one time I tried it. I prefer Chipotle's burrito bowls, due to their chicken being better, as well as their awesome, fresh guacamole, but Habaneros is a good alternative since there are no Chipotles anywhere near here.More

Hello David, thank you for your inquiry about Habanaros. Although, from what I can gather from your question, you might be looking for a hotel rather than a restaraunt? If I'm incorrect, well, we're fully wheelchair... More
