If you are in Las Cruces, I would highly recommend this place. Everything was clearly very fresh and the service was quick. We got enchiladas and the chicken fajitas; both were great. I wish you could get chips and salsa AND the welcome soup!

Habanero's is a great little restaurant if you are looking for a casual, quiet place to have nice meal and a beer. The menu items are listed on the wall and you order at a counter. The food is brought to your table. While many...More

We travel down to Cruces every year with the three Whippets and always eat at Habanero's at least once. This year was no exception and we again had a fantastic meal. The Welcome soup this year may be the best yet! I had the chicken...More
