Habanero Fresh Mexican Cuisine has opened at 2613 W. Gate City Blvd. in Greensboro.
If you like the customizable concepts of Chipotle or Qdoba, you might appreciate this locally-owned eatery that opened where Donut World used to be.
The menu is simple. Choose a taco, burrito, quesadilla, nachos, taco salad or burrito bowl and customize it with a choice of protein such as chicken, steak, shrimp, Mexican-style barbecue, tofu or vegetables. Then add carbohydrates such as rice or black beans and toppings such as corn salsa, pico de gallo, mozzarella or olives. A choice of house-made dressing, such as Chipotle Ranch or Southwest Vinaigrette comes on the side.
Prices range from $3.99 for a taco to $7.99 for a taco salad.
For an extra charge, there are more add-on options, including guacamole and queso mozzarella.
Tortilla chips and salsas come with every entrée.
Dessert items ($4.99) include creamy corn, strawberries with cream, or fried plantains. Churros with a choice of flavor are available for $1.99.
Or get a $10.99 combo that includes a meal, dessert and drink.

It doesn’t stop with breakfast. Pancakes House offers burgers; sandwiches such as a Reuben and chicken Parmesan; croissant and pita sandwiches such as crabmeat salad and stir-fry veggie; and club sandwiches and wraps such as Chicken Caesar and California.
A selection of steaks and chops sets the stage for other entrees like French Fried Shrimp plate, spaghetti and Greek-inspired Athenian Chicken Breast.
The restaurant even offers a menu of fajitas and quesadillas. And soups, salads and appetizers round things off.
