The menu at Habanero's Grill has plenty of chalupas, tacos, and other Tex-Mex staples, but it's the burritos that have really made its name. "Skip the other burrito joints in San Antonio and make your way here for a real treat," advised USA Today when it placed Habanero's Grill on its 2012 list of the Best Burritos in America. These wrapped beauties come in a half-dozen tried-and-true varieties, though diners can also build their own creations. Beginning with a freshly pressed flour or whole-wheat tortilla, they choose from three kinds of beans, three cheeses, two kinds of rice, veggies, housemade salsas, and marinated chicken or steak. The team aims to construct each one so that even improvised numbers are as balanced and flavorful as each burrito on the regular menu. The latter run the gamut from the Fajita-Rito to a veggie version with cilantro-lime rice, squash, and potatoes in addition to the usual suspects.
