History and Other Habaneros Info:
Habaneros has been locally owned by Tim Tolman since 1996. Tim got his start in the restaurant business in Lake Tahoe in the mid-seventies working for several different places before moving to Bend, Oregon in 1979 and opening Mexicali Rose, a wildly successful restaurant and bar that operated for more than 20 years. In 1984, Tim opened Mexicali Rose in Medford and ran it successfully for 12 years before moving to Habaneros present location at North Front and 5th St., making Tim's establishment the oldest Mexican restaurant in Southern Oregon.
Habaneros serves only food made in-house with the freshest ingredients. All sauces are unique and stand out from so many others in town.
We have, perhaps, the largest tequila selection in the state and most of the available Mexican imported beers in bottles and on tap.
Jorge Valles has been working at Habaneros for 10 years and is the general manager. The kitchen crew has been working at Habaneros for an average of 8 years.
We feature live music in the bar on Friday and Saturday (for 13 years).
The patio has a tropical feel and is the perfect place to enjoy lunch or dinner and perhaps a margarita or imported Mexican beer.
In early 2007, Tim remodeled the bar by adding a storefront window with awning and repainted the entire building.
