This colorful Mexican restaurant produces what may be the city's best mole, that thick, mahogany-colored sauce of tomatoes, peppers, chocolate, ground nuts, raisins, and spices. The rest of the kitchen's output isn't bad either, with virtually everything made from scratch.
Colorful, quirky, yet sophisticated, Lopez's urbane charms present the perfect backdrop to its creative menu of "gourmet Tex-Mex" fare, ranging from lobster empanadas to mahi-mahi tacos and blue-cheese-piqued guacamole. There's also a solid selection of homemade desserts and an impressive array of top-shelf anejo tequilas.
Part of a Texas-based chain, this "casual upscale" eatery does a good job with everything from burritos to bacon-wrapped shrimp. But it's the handsome bar with its big collection of sippin' tequilas, margaritas, and icy micheladas that stamps our passport; add a basketful of warm translucent chips, the muy picante salsa, and an order of guacamole, and we might have to apply for a visa.
Standard fare like burritos, chimichangas and tacos gets an unexpected dollop of grace from the use of top-notch ingredients and attentive preparation at this casual, independently owned Mexican restaurant.
Diners can expect the typical Tex-Mex, South-of-the-Border assortment of tacos, burritos, fajitas, and combination plates; for fast, friendly, filling, and cheap Mexican fare, Los Habaneros definitely fills the bill.
