We were seated right away and greeted with tortilla chips and salsa. Excellent. I had the Carnita Asada which consisted of tender marinated slices of beef, avocado, re-fried beans, rice and soft flour tortillas for wrapping the above. Outstanding. The service was very good and...More

The food here is consistently good. I judge a Mexican restaurant by the flavor of their rice. Too many of these places have runny beans and flavorless rice. Not here. Always good. The taquitos are delicious and crunchy. The tacos are super tasty. And oh...More

Best Mexican food in Knoxville and the friendliest best staff work here. Always feel like I'm visiting family instead of an establishment. And best margaritas in the world!

If you love Mexican food, this is the place to go. Friendly staff, good food, nice restaurant. We always get the Fajitas for Two. You can order over the phone if you don't want to go out for the night.

The food at Habaneros is very good, the portions are more than adequate and lean a bit toward the larger size so be sure to bring your appetite! The staff were friendly and helpful. We were seated quickly. The restaurant was acceptably clean. Very much...More

This is a nice little place, not much on glitz, but plenty of good food and cold beer. I've been here a few times and have had no problems. It's in east Knoxville which is sorely lacking good Mexican food. Give it a try.
