We have missed Habaneros so much during Covid. This was what my husband wanted for Father's Day but they were closed and he and my son both asked for a raincheck. We took out and ordered online- very easy to do. Great site. I am...going to download the app. You can pick the time for pick up. It was delicious. This "fresh" taste of a burrito bowl is something you can savour. The choices are great. Looks like they have all the Covid restrictions in place. Felt safe there. Staff excellent as well. Habaneros.... you have been missed.More

We get burritos to go here around twice a month. The service is hit and miss and as someone pointed out one of the women working here is unable to wrap/roll the burrito. This place seems to be modelled after Chipotle in the US. The...burritos are large and tasty and reasonable priced. Highly recommended.More

My review isn’t so much on the food but the service I received today. I’ve never been so confused and frustrated trying to order food. I was waiting in line behind a family of 4. Greeted reasonably fast by a nice woman. Asked what I...would like. Told my order. Then from there it was a total mess. I waited, and waited and waited for my order to actually be made. The woman who took my original order walked away and was doing cash duty while two others worked the family order. I waited at least 10-12 minutes. The girl who waited on me was extremely slow and seemed as though she didn’t know what she was doing. She started to roll my burrito and had difficulty and it was looking like it was falling apart. So I asked if she could get someone to roll it properly. Instead of doing that, she continued to struggle, the other rep was rude and said “that’s how it’s done”. No it’s not. I’ve been there before. And instead of her apologizing or even acknowledging me, she turns to the other woman, starts talking to her, leaving my burrito on the counter. Excuse me?! People have somewhere to go. Totally and utterly pissed at this experience. This person should not be working there. Is there a such thing as customer service anymore?! And instead of a 5-10 minute visit when it was not busy, it took 20 minutes. Totally ridiculous.More

I had planned a Boxing Day taco bar for our staff along with my management team this past holiday. Our caterer pulled out last minute and I admit I was panicking. One of our staff members recommended Habaneros. I reached out to them and had...a response within a matter of minutes from their marketing and chef teams (Michael and Kyle). They not only assured us they would cater this event, but worked within our budget, and time frame and provided suitable options for all my staffs dietary restrictions (vegan, vegetarian, halal, gluten free and lactose free). I am sure this is not an easy feat to come in last minute and feed 80 people. It was by far our most popular event. They went above and beyond to come in and look at our facilities before hand to know exactly where to set up. The food was plentiful and absolutely delicious. I am amazed by how many different, unique and flavourful options there were. The service they provided was first class and I highly recommend them. Thank you so much for helping us out and feeding our bellies.More

My son and I visited today and had delicious and fresh burritos with warm chips and cheese. The only issue I had was at the cash register. Our total was $27.10, so I handed the young man $40.00 and then tried to give him a...dime, to make it an easy $13.00 change. I know what it's like to work with a float and run out of change. He kept telling me that I gave him $40.00. I explained in a couple different ways why I was giving him the dime. He took it and proceeded to give me back $12.90. At that point, I was out 20¢ but a line was forming so we left, confused, hence the 4/5 rating. Again the food was fresh and we enjoyed it. Highly recommended.More

Experience was great. I visited during March Break at lunch time and it was super busy so very noisy etc. But I didn't wait long to be served and service moved fast and no issues grabbing a table. I had a chicken burrito bowl and...wasn't sure what to expect. I had various toppings but in the end I was satisfied and very full (I had the regular size). Prices were reasonable for lunch, including a drink was just over $15.More
