5 out of 5 stars

Although it shutters at 3pm, sunlight pours into Habanero Cafe during the breakfast and lunch rushes as a melting pot of South Austinites dig into some of the best no-frills Mexican fare in town. Most of the decor comes courtesy of beer companies, but the vintage neon signs and tiled Corona mosaics just add to a homestyle charm that's further amplified by a friendly waitstaff and some of Austin's most generous lunch specials. Don't miss the chicken fajitas, with a thick rub of chile powder that disproves the misconception that all fajitas are created equal. It's cash only, but the $6.95 specials make it easy to fill up for less than a Hamilton.
