    This place knocks it out the park every time. We love it and have been several times. Service is always at least decent, margarita flights are a great option, and the food is delicious! My only complaint is that they got rid of my fave dish, the lobster enchiladas. 🦞

    Nice spot! Decor is really cool my daughter kept saying it was like being in the movie Coco. Food was good I had the Blue Habanero Burrito was very good. Was after Church so brunch time did not have a long wait. Although I didn’t get any the cocktails looked delicious. Wait staff was nice I left my wallet and they saved it for me

    The food was fabulous, and the service was excellent.
    Like many places these days, it was noisy. Not just because they were busy (busy but not packed), but also because nothing is done in the design to try and control the noise. It’s an irritant in modern restaurant design for me.

    I think 4.3-4.4 would be a more appropriate average for this place. Coming from Chesterfield, I’m usually a regular at Pepe or Mr. Pepe’s. So I do expect a bit of an upcharge to be dining inside RVA so prices are more expensive here by probably 20ish% including tax. Does the food quality or quantity increase proportionally? No. Pepe beats this place in price and portion size as would be expected for city vs. suburb. Pepe has unlimited chips with salsa/sweet white sauce for one thing and overall the portion with the dinner size taco is significantly more (although it is primarily filler refried beans/rice). But I also did not think this place’s tacos (Street Tacos) were particularly impressive. I have yet to find a taqueria that can beat Taqueria El Sueno in Rochester, MN, which had mind-numbingly good salsas. I’d have to come back to try their other tacos out but probably won’t be soon.

    Service initially was slow but once they got our order, the tacos came out like 3 minutes later, which is extremely fast. It was very busy on a Saturday at 7pm.

    Nice interior.

    Amazing experience! We had a large party, last minute and no reservation. They accommodated us and provided great service. Margaritas were awesome, second only to the fantastic tacos. I has the corner tacos and my son had the Tacos de Alambre. Don’t get me started on the fajitas! Can’t wait to go back.

    Extremely unpleasant experience. Went to celebrate my partners birthday. An older customer aggressively approached us and began to belligerently berated us, telling us to shut our 1 year old up—who was not being excessively loud (i mean he’s one so he was whining here and there?). He berated us, cursed us out and flipped us off for good measure. This part is of course in no way the staffs fault at all.

    Our negative experience came from what happened afterwards. Other diners around us approached the staff about the man’s behavior. An employee came over to us, and the first thing he did was to DEFEND the customer, saying he was a regular. We were asked to empathize with the clearly intoxicated customer who had aggressively berated us in front of our children because he “usually wasn’t like this.” We had been here before and did not expect the disrespect and full throttle defense and tolerance of such belligerent behavior—as long as you regularly spend money there I guess?

    As a local I highly DO NOT recommend this place. We certainly we won’t be back.

    My wife selected Blue Habanero as a new spot for us to try. Although the parking is a little dicey, the food and drinks were worth the inconvenience.

    From the appetizer to the main course, the presentation of the food was appealing, and it was delicious. The portions were good.

    The drinks were a perfect mix.

    Our server only had one miscue. However, she was attentive and made up for it will quality service.

    Blue Habanero is on the list for a return visit.

    This is definitely a local gem and they get a lot of business, miserly m mostly due to their good food and drinks. There are some good appetizers options available for very reasonable prices. We had the queso dip w/ chorizo and it was really good. They are known for their street tacos so that’s what I had for my entree. My wife had the melting chimichanga. Her food was delicious and the quesabirria tacos were amazing! Overall really good food with 2 downsides. 1. parking is almost nonexistent and 2. the waiter/server had too many tables and we waited a long time to get our drinks, refills or anything else. 7/10 would recommend for the food but be mindful of the overworked small staff.

    10/10 place. I had already liked their amazing food and great prices for drinks during their happy hour(which is everyday). But they sold me with their outstanding service! I left my wallet there on a BUSY Saturday and they still were able to find it, reached out to me and gave me my wallet back with everything and the exact amount of cash I had left. I can’t see myself enjoying Mexican food anywhere else now. Highly recommend!

    Came here for date night with the wife. Service was great- friendly, attentive, quick. Food was amazing. I got the ribeye burrito. Wife got chicken fajitas. So flavorful. My regular lime margarita was good but nothing special. Wife got a cucumber marg that was very good. My only complaint would be that it’s extremely noisy inside- I think due to the metal/tin walls and there isn’t anything to damp the echoes.

    I came with a vegetarian friend and there were plenty of options for us to try. The squash blossom tacos and trio of dips appetizer were both excellent. The veggie burrito was only okay and could have been more flavorful. Cocktail menu was excellent and I enjoyed the smoky margarita that I got.

    I wish there was more sound dampening as it was incredibly loud in the restaurant.

I should have learned my lesson as the food can be hit or miss but this is the last straw finding hair wrapped around my surf and turf. I will never return here the only reason I gave it a third try is for the queso chorizo. I will go somewhere else for now on. I would’ve given no stars if it was possible.

    Fantastic food and service! The waiter came to our table twice to ask about our food, he apologized when he didn’t have to for the bar not having frozen Margheritas, and he brought us napkins without asking. This place had one of the best plates of nachos I’ve ever had and their street tacos were on point. I like that they put the toppings for the tacos on the side and the Mexican rice was hard to stop eating. The atmosphere was dark, but ambient, with music that set the tone for the aura of the place. The wall art was very cool.

    This such a cool spot! The music and decor was on point. We got the trio sampler and the queso and guac hit the spot! My passion fruit mojito was FANTASTIC. I am very picky about mojitos and it was just what I wanted! The quesabirria tacos were delicious and the meat was super tender and melted in my mouth. The rice was not very good and super mushy. I also tried the chili lime shrimp tacos which were also delicious. Service was a bit slow but they were very apologetic and attentive for the wait! Definitely gonna come back soon.

    I like to visit a restaurant a couple of times before I make a review, but I went with my son, and he’s been a number of times, so I’m also using him as a reviewer. The inside of the restaurant was beautiful with wonderful artwork. Our Waiter Jonathan was very knowledgeable with the types of food and helped my grandson get something he loved. The food was very well done, the flavors were lip smacking, so delicious that we ate it all. I wish I’d taken an after photo also to show how we cleaned up. It’s on my short list of RVA must eat.

You can choose your flavors for the margarita flights – I got passionfruit, peach, and mango, and they were all sooo good. The tacos with carnitas? Chefs kiss. So juicy, flavorful, and tender. Definitely recommend!

    I enjoyed lunch at the Blue Habanero on Memorial Day. It was crowded and we sat at the bar where we were well attended to by Ari & Jose. I had a couple of pineapple habanero margaritas, 1 by each bartender. I was impressed by the consistency between the two. The food was very good with the perfect amount of seasoning. This was a really nice find and I will certainly go there again when in the area!

    It’s the old Strawberry Cafe restaurant so there is a ramp to go into the restaurant. I think it’s one of the more accessible restaurants in the area mainly because it is larger so it should be easier to move around.

    Dank food. Kinda over priced. Got three tacos and some “spicy veggies” (it’s not spicy at all) as a side. 16$. Margaritas are yummy. 5$ during happy hour (ends at 6pm) Highly recommend raspberry.
    My friend got quesa birritta and said it was dank. I got the bacon/steak tacos with chihuahua cheese- they were very greasy and barely any cheese at all (not even sure if it’s in there tbh)

    Service was alright. Went on a Tuesday night and they were moderately busy.

    No signs outside for the restaurant so we walked right by it not realizing lol.

    Went for an early dinner on a Saturday evening and there was an estimated 45-minute and but we didn’t wait for more than 30 minutes before we were called. We were glad we got there when we did as the wait only got longer as we sat and ate.

    We ordered the trio sampler to start. Then when we discovered that the tacos couldn’t be mixed and matched, we all ordered different tacos and traded so we could sample different ones. There are three tacos per order and there were three of us which was perfect.

    We ordered the Huitlacoche, street tacos and al pastor. All were good but if I were to pick one to eat three of, I’d probably go with the street tacos.

    I never write negative reviews, but, I’m rather embarrassed that Richmonders like this place so much. The food is decent, with not much variety. Servers are friendly enough, but on more than one occasion I have waited 45 min+ for a table when I was told the wait was 20 min. There were clearly tables open and there is little to no space to wait, and most servers will have the presumption to ask you not to block a certain area…if those waiters focused that energy to cleaning more tables (there were more than several cleared tables but no movement with waitlist), then I think the operation would run smoothly. When I asked the host what the status was after I had been waiting patiently for 45 min, he explained that some people were just sitting at their table talking. While I understand this, it is also the restaurant’s responsibility to ask people to adhere to a time limit at the table. Especially MORE SO if you have such a long wait. My friend and I ended up going to a different Mexican place and got our food by the time we got a text that our table was ready—1.5 HOURS later. The food is just not that exceptional for that wait or organization; I would expect God to be serving food for that ordeal. I think it’s just more so just one of the few Mexican restaurants in the Fan. I would not recommend

    Ive been to this place three times in the past month. One of the best local spots in the fan to get a GOOD marg. Their street tacos were soo good. We got them each time we came but the first time was the best because it had a nice char on the outside, the other times it didnt. They have a nice seasoning spice, sweetness from the pineapple, and smokiness from the grill. Their octopus marg is my favorite but their watermelon mojito is so refreshing and delicious. Honestly all of their drinks… they actually put alcohol in them so you can taste it. the flights are awesome too. Highly recommend!

    This was our first time. Started by getting drinks at bar, took awhile to get noticed by bar staff. Drinks were phenomenal though. Highly recommend the watermelon habanero margarita. we were waiting for a table, but when bar opened up first, we grabbed those seats. started with tuna ceviche which tasted amazing (spicy, flavorful not overly citrusy, great balance), but wish tuna chunks were smaller. it also doesn’t come with chips, which i found weird, but bartender hooked it up and got us some. street tacos were excellent, lots of filling, great flavor. rice/sides are light. service was slow, but friendly. they were slammed on a saturday, but we often had to flag someone down. overall really great spot and we will go back.

    Second time: service equally as spotty. Chips came out at same time as tacos. Drinks came in when we were almost done eating. They gotta figure that out.

    We went on a Saturday evening and it was packed. The place is very small but quaint. Very nice decor and ambiance. The waiters were nice but slow. We got our appetizers without napkins. The chicken nachos were delicious as well as their chips, salsa, and guacamole appetizers. We ordered fajitas, but we couldn’t taste any of the seasonings. The steak fajitas were too bland, but they filled the plate; not skimpy like other restaurants. No one enjoyed the tacos either. The margarita flights were great. Probably won’t go back for fajitas or tacos, but I will go back for the appetizers. The drinks were good, but they were all served in very small glasses; not just the flights. Not like the huge Mexican drinks you get at other restaurants. I recommend this place for couples or a girls’ night out.

The two gentleman were tag-teaming the table but would forget what we requested. My second visit was on point! Overall, the food is so good! The Nacho Supreme was so good and I am so happy I gave them another chance. The drinks….were lit, haha!

    This was my boyfriend’s and my first time here. It had been on our list to go for a while because we heard great things. We loved the atmosphere and cool art on the walls. Our waiter, Christian, gave us excellent service with great recommendations. We ordered the margarita flight, trio sampler and variety taco tray. All the food was delicious, some of the best we have ever had in this area for Mexican food. At the end, Christian asked us how our experience was today and we appreciated that. We already had been saying how much we enjoyed it before he even asked! 10/10 would recommend. Make a reservation if you are going during the week because the wait can be long sometimes but worth it. We went on a Saturday afternoon with no wait, so it depends on when you go.

    I wish I could have reviewed the food instead of the service…but here we are. Went in on a Thursday evening. They were a little busy as the host said 5-10 min. Then they got really busy. Waited, waited…he hadn’t taken a name on his handheld btw. Two girls walk in off the street and he asked ‘Two?’ then nods his head for them to follow him and seats them immediately. I asked what was up and the manager stepped up. The host stated they were here prior…I asked where lol. Then the manager mentioned the list from the handheld. My name isn’t there bc he never took it. The manager offered to seat me but I declined and thanked him for trying. I wouldn’t recommend this location as they were obviously prejudiced to my party. It’s pretty sad too bc it looked like great food and fun. Would’ve spent upwards of $75 too…

    Food 10/10 – fish tacos and the sampler app were seriously fire, even the side of Mexican rice was soo good and fresh, the service was also 10/10- we sat at the bar and all the bartenders were super attentive and made sure we had extra napkins and water before we even asked, checked on us and served us quickly, even with the whole place being completely packed. Definitely coming back and one of my new favorites in Richmond

  164. Lee Reynolds 2022/11

    Walked into a sea of color and sound. So much was happening. Did a bit of recon before arriving so I knew I was going to have the corner tacos. Perfect choice with tequila and beer. This place has the goods. It’s new so expect a bit of a wait while the kitchen gets comfortable. Excellent service and great portions. I’m an athlete and eat a lot! I couldn’t finish my 3 tacos. Worth the visit for sure.

    I don’t like leaving negative comments, but I would like this place to succeed. I love the decor; however, I met a friend for a drink at 3pm on a Wednesday. There were only a group of 4 women at the bar and us. We waited 10 minutes for a drink. There were 2 bartenders, but they were either chatting with each other or looking at their phones.
    Both of us have been in the business and understand growing pains, but this was ridiculous….the place was empty.

    Local fan residents making our first visit. The place was busy for dinner early on a Wednesday. We were out on a walk and stopped on a whim and split the Corner Tacos (Chorizo, Potato, Queso Fresco, and House Spicy Sauce) with a side of Sopa Azteca (Chicken Soup). Flavors were great, atmosphere was lively, but borderline too loud IF you’re looking to have conversation with a larger group (didn’t bother us at all). We will certainly come back.

Great vegetarian taco options including huitlacoche and squash blossom. I definitely want to come back and try more. This location housed Richmond’s legendary Strawberry Street Cafe. There’s a mural on the wall at Blue Habanero that pays homage to the bathtub. Look for it!

    NEED TO FIX THE AC. Ceiling fans 15 feet up do not do the job. On the first visit It was so hot that our waiter was dripping sweat and soaked through his shirt 2nd visit at least we were under a fan, but it was so hot our drinks melted in minutes. Both times we all couldn’t get out of there fast enough we were so hot and uncomfortable . As for the food, first time we went the food was amazing, can’t say enough about it, a few weeks later not so much. After asking 2 times if the plate I was given was mine the food was wrong, (the burrito was supposed to have NO rice in it) after one bite, I moved it to the side and no one came back to ask about it, didn’t even ask as it sat there while paying.

    Similar to other reviews, we were a bit disappointed with the food and atmosphere but the drinks were great! When we got there our table was broken, we moved to another table and then the manager “fixed” our broken table and asked us to move back to it. Within 10 minutes it was wobbling again. I ordered the short rib tacos, the meat was tender but way way way too salty, almost inedible. The restaurant was really loud and the lights were way too bright.

    Was so excited to try this place and came with my mom. The service was OKAY and could have been better. We waited 3 mins to be seated and almost 10 mins before a server came over to our table to take our drink orders. We came during happy hour and ordered from that menu. We both had margaritas, the trio sampler, and the quesadilla sampler.

    I was disappointed that they don’t allow you to mix flavors for the margaritas even though they charge a price to have flavor added. I had a frozen peach margarita and it was very good, not too strong. The food was okay but nothing to brag about.

    The food and margarita were excellent – some of the best Mexican food my wife and I have had in Richmond.

    We ate there on a Saturday night and sat at a table by the front window. The place was busy. Our waiter took some time to come to the table and then to deliver the check, but that was not a big deal. Once he engaged the food came to the table quickly.

    The single biggest thing that would stop us from going back was the noise. It was super loud. Too loud. We saw some people leaving covering their ears. I strongly recommend the owners invest in acoustic absorption in the ceiling and walls. Edo’s Squid had the same issue until they added acoustic absorption.

    First time @ Blue Habanero and it did not disappoint! The servers were all very nice. The restaurant was packed and there was a good vibe.

    The atmosphere was bubbly and the food was plentiful. The Day of the Dead decor brings a cool vibe to the restaurant. The service was super fast and the food was not only plentiful but delicious. We ordered the Nachos Supreme for appetizer and the Variety Taco Tray for main course. It was just 2 of us but we had enough food for 4. The nachos filled us up. The Taco tray allowed us to pick 3 different kinds of tacos and you got three tacos of each choice for a total of 9 tacos. The margarita flight was good but not strong enough lol and I’m a light weight. Overall we will be returning if only for the nachos. They were chef’s kiss 😘

    Look.. This here is the real deal Mexican cuisine, if you want a Chi Chi’s experience then this isn’t for you. This place has ambiance, service and food quality. Pablo the tender of bars is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. He truly enjoys what he does. Unlike some of us who drag our half alive McDonald’s filled corpses into work each day only to talk to eight different bosses about TPS reports. The corn tortillas are hand made by people not by some auto roller that pumps out soulless, lifeless food by the thousands. Nope.. “no robots here!” You’ll protest as you stumble out after four to six rounds of tequila and Mezcal-based cocktails! 10/10 go now!! Happy Hour 2-6 for those of you who like a mid afternoon drinkening!

  206. Sara Sigur 2022/08

    The food (al pastor, shrimp, and grilled fish tacos) was great! But the ambiance made it tough to enjoy – it was crazy hot inside and extremely loud. Would go back if those things are addressed.

    It was amazing right up until the AC went out. Staff was great about it and did everything you would expect. Had to leave but will definitely go back. Things are tough for new businesses, especially on the first hot day of almost summer.

  208. Angelo Cruz 2022/08

    Definitely what you expect in the RVA in the way of taco domination! The art is very pretty here and very respectful to the culture. The staff are bilingual, helpful and friendly. We were seated without any wait and our drinks and chips were served promptly.

    The art is really cool and respectful to the culture. With Blue Habanero being a new place, it does have that new apartment feel. The pictures are hung really thoughtful in some places and then just placed in others. However, I do see with some time, this place will age well.

    The variety of tacos here are insane and we were not disappointed! The Chipotle Chicken Tacos were smokey and delectable. The Quesabirria Tacos were good, but weren’t as grilled as some other places as I prefer.

    Overall a really great place! I would love to see where they’re at in a year and see what they can offer. However, this probably makes my top five Mexican restaurants in the RVA.

    Parking is mostly street parking. You can find a spot about a block or two away and have a nice walk to and from your car. It’s a plus if you do live in a neighborhood. However if you’re a bike rider in the city, this place is just wonderful to get to.

    Came in with a group of three girls. I motioned the host with 4 fingers up and Said table for 4. I guess he didn’t think I was with the group of girls and his response was “can I help you bud”. I’m sorry but I found that to be extremely rude. I’m 23, and I’m not to be addressed as ‘bud”. My friend had to motion that I was with them, and then he took us to a table. The food was excellent. A little pricey but it was definitely worth it. The drinks were flavorful and strong. Great atmosphere and music playing. Would be 5 stars if I wasn’t Insulted by the host.

    Dropped in for a quick bite on Tuesday -my waiter was so kind and attentive despite it being crowded. You can’t mix and match tacos which is a bummer because their options all sounded good – I went with shrimp tacos which were delicious and very generous in portion; plus they come with a choice of side without having to add on. Would definitely come back to try more things and get one of their fun drinks! Only issue is that the music is *incredibly* loud – to where I had to shout to be heard. Seems like it could be a fun atmosphere for a weekend for sure but not the best for a weekday dinner.

    A very clean and laid back establishment. Music was at the right volume & quick service. I’m in love with the flights, we had 3 rounds 😵‍💫 all are very good but the 3 that stood out were the spicy margarita, coco Loco and the peach. The alcohol in it was just right. The food was very tasty. I love that the salmon had just the right kick to my food and the appetizers was also delicious 😋. This is added to one of my favorite spots.

    This place is interesting. In the former home of the Strawberry Street Cafe. Went on a whim with a friend. It was an exceedingly hot day. Excellent frozen lime margaritas & cold Pacifico on tap. The chichiarones were incredible. Fresh fried. Nice hot sauce. Lobster enchiladas had a very unique spinach cream sauce that paired well. Tuna ceviche was spectacular. Family owned. Waitress was very friendly and courteous, yet professional.

    I come to Strawberry Street often and I’ve been waiting for this place to open up! Comparing this to the Mexican restaurants in RVA, this place is 5 stars and the best Mexican restaurant I’ve been to in this city. Comparing it to Mexican restaurants in general, this place is 4 stars. We ordered the Quesabirria tacos, La Paz tacos, The Trio starter, and the Spicy Cilantro margarita.

    Amazing birria tacos, they could use more queso though. The consome that goes with it was delicious. We also ordered the La Paz tacos with fried fish, which were definitely not as good in comparison. The fish was dry and plain. There wasn’t enough sauce on it to make up for that. The Sopa Azteca I ordered as a side was very good! Lots of flavor. The queso dip in the Trio was fantastic, very flavorful and tasty. The salsa was great, your standard restaurant salsa. The guacamole on the other hand was not my favorite. It was too plain, maybe it needed more salt.

    The Spicy Cilantro margarita blew me away! Best margarita I’ve ever had, not only for the flavor but also for the way it was prepared. It definitely is very spicy and I love that. If you like margaritas and you like spicy, I recommend it.

    I love the Day of the Dead decor and the blue theme. The atmosphere is casual and fun while also upscale. It was pretty busy when we came. The service is so friendly!

    Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and I would definitely return. I already told my friends about this place!

    In all my years out eating tacos, I may have found my top spot outside of Mexico and could rival some of the best street tacos IN Mexico 👏👏👏 absolutely amazing food and friendly service. Love the marg flights, super creative concoctions! One caveat is if ya wanna have a conversation it would be best to go prior to happy hour, it’s pretty noisy after when it gets super busy.

    Decor is somewhat low-budget and not especially warm. The menu is limited; it’s primarily a taco place, with a few other traditional Mexican dishes as well. Tacos were good. Bowls are, too, but overpriced. It’s a decent restaurant but anybody who’s traveled around the country knows there are better cantinas.

  228. MIKE JOSLIN 2022/06

    Food was excellent and the service was perfectly average (not in a bad way, just nothing special). I will have to admit the Pastor Tacos were borderline perfectly seasoned, but I do not think that they were any better than what I might get from a good taco truck for a third of the price.
    Honestly, the price is my main gripe. If I’m going to pay 3-4x the price of standard street tacos, I expect that it’s because of the location, service, or ambiance – this place has none of the above. There’s no view or anything, the parking situation is terrible, and the service was the type of mundane that you might get from a Midwest truck stop.
    Overall, I would still suggest the spot, everyone in our group of four was more than happy with their meals. But, be prepared to spend more than you would expect and receive the same enthusiasm from your server as you might get at a Wendy’s drive through on Hull St.

  229. cherica taylor 2022/06

    The service and food was awesome. Very different from most Mexican Restaurants. The street taco are really good. The queso dip which i added spinach and mushrooms was differentiated but good.

    Excellent tacos and margaritas. I moved here from CA recently where we have a lot of great Mexican food available, and I was really impressed by Blue Habanero. So far my favorite is their fish tacos. Great selection of fun margaritas too, and they offer flights to sample the options. Very friendly staff too, even when I brought by my very loud baby for lunch.

    The Margarita’s Flight was very impressive
    My favorite was coco loco we tried 6 different flavors and all tasted really good.

    We ordered an appetizer, 2 Margarita Flights, a Puerto Vallarta tacos and can’t remember the other taco’s name and a burrito to take home and the check was only $82.00 definitely going back soon.

    We went to Blue Habanero for a second try at getting service. (The first time we went, the host didn’t even look at us so we just left after 2 minutes). This time, the host was a different person. He did acknowledge us, but must not have been paying attention when he promised us a table, because when he grabbed two menus and took us around the corner, there were no empty tables. Instead of asking us to wait, he grabbed a small table that was next to the host stand and dragged it into an open area where we were awkwardly spaced between a booth and another table that was actually dining-sized. It wasn’t long before I noticed that our improvised spot was causing traffic jams for the servers and people trying to leave. My partner later pointed out that an employee was using a chair to wipe down menus on and that takeout orders were being put precariously on a ledge. Apparently we had been given the menu-wiping / takeout table! XD I would’ve rather waited than feel guilty for sitting and eating in a restaurant. Our server was nice, at least. We got margaritas and tacos, both of which were below average and definitely overpriced considering the quality. My blood orange margarita tasted like Tropicana OJ. I didn’t drink much of it. The rice was bad, which is like… c’mon. My partner’s refried beans were obviously straight from the can. Overall, a mediocre experience and I won’t be returning despite its proximity to us.

    There are numerous Mexican restaurants popping up around Richmond, so I was hesitant about what another one could offer, but Blue Habanero brings a flavor, quality, and IMO authenticity that most other sit-down Mexican spots in Richmond are lacking.

    I had the Pastor tacos and they were delicious, as were the shrimp tacos that my friend got. Also, the sip I had of my friend’s Key Lime margarita was amazing.

    The ambience and design are also super fun. I will say, the AC was REALLY lacking when we were there on an incredibly hot day, but I’m chalking that up to it being their first week open and imagine it’ll be addressed.

    Highly recommend.

    I am fairly new to Richmond, moved here a couple months ago. I made reservations for before 6 pm to get a round of happy hour drinks for my family visiting from out of town. They lost our reservation, it was jam packed, and the clock crept closer to 6. Then one of the managers took our happy hour orders while we waited for a table and apologized for the inconvenience, seated us, immediately had our happy hour order ready. Then they served us the best tacos and possibly the best meal ive had in Richmond so far. Great staff, great food, don’t miss it. I’d come for the smells alone. I’ll be back the next 3 weekends with all my other Richmond visitors.

    The Blue Habanero is relatively new, so presumably they are still working out the kinks. The staff was very attentive and worked hard to make our experience a good one. The fajitas were lacking in salt / spice. The chicken dish was flavorful with a smoky cheese sauce.

    I dropped in to join friends on a Sunday afternoon about one hour before happy hour ended. I immediately went to the bathroom because I had just left the park and the bathroom was very clean. I also love that Amerest had the adjustable lighting lol.

    It wasn’t extremely packed when I arrived but we were seated at the end of the bar. The guacamole was delicious and because I was late to the party I ordered my margarita flight as well as the chicken chipotle tacos and Mexican rice per our server’s recommendation. This is no exaggeration but I got my food in 5 minutes or less, faster than some fast food places in my opinion. Those tacos were delicious and I had the option of choosing corn or flour tortillas (team flour lol). The margarita flight was $14 and the passion fruit margarita was the perfect amount of sweet and the octopus margarita was their version of a sangria. I also ordered a jumbo frozen strawberry margarita (Tajin rim) for $6 on happy hour. The restaurant wasn’t overly packed when we first arrived but it definitely picked up before we left; great food, drinks, and atmosphere.

    The food was absolutely amazing, but it took us about 25 minutes to receive anything to drink:( I would normally excuse something like that, especially since it was so busy… BUT it was probably 90 degrees inside of the restaurant. The AC was terrible and it made for a average experience.

    Best bar in RVA. It’s live, lit, cheap and the drinks are strong. I got here at 4 and left around 7. Shout out to the amazing staff. The drinks were everything and the food was even better. Great happy hour menu.

    These tacos were GOOD! Was pretty close to an authentic Mexico taco like the few handfuls worth I’ve tried down in Mexico.. Definitely a good place to go on a date. They were passing out the 3 fancy margarita “tasters” and other fancy drinks like hot cakes. If you are trying to have a quiet dinner though this may not be the place, the metal walls seem to amplify things, it is not quiet at all once it gets filled up. Either way food was great!

    The customer service here is horrible… they move to slow and I went on a slow day maybe 4 people in the restaurant. I’ll never visit here again

    Definitely would recommend. The queso with spinach was excellent and the pollo con calavaza was delicious!

    Just another overpriced, small portion style over substance fusion restaurant in Richmond. Extremely loud, order was messed up twice. Not impressed.

    Finally a Mexican restaurant in RVA you can be excited to eat at! Portions are generous, prices are reasonable, service is prompt and friendly. Will happily return!

    The food was good, but drinks and service were lacking. Ordered the spicy mango margarita and it was downright gross (and we are not picky whatsoever). Tasted like cough syrup or something. When we brought it to our server Kat’s attention that we didn’t like it and wanted to order a different drink, she looked irritated and didn’t want to address the issue at all and she still ended up charging us for the drinks that we took two sips out of and sent back. Maybe it’s our fault for not alerting the manager to resolve the issue, but we didn’t want to be those people who complained to the manager so we just sucked it up and paid full price, but would not return for that reason. The quesabirria tacos were tasty though.

    Great place to eat and drink. The employees are very attentive to your needs. Food and drinks are great and reasonably priced. I will go back again and again and again!!!
