Sergio Ramirez and Jose Bollo opened Habanero’s Taqueira on Main Street at Highway 92 in March.
When the two opened the restaurant, delivering their food directly to customers was far from their minds and they just wanted to serve authentic Mexican food that would keep people coming back for more, said Nylia Bollo, daughter of one of the owners.
They opened an intimate dining room with a full-service bar and started enjoying positive reviews from customers in-person and online, she said.
On the website Urbanspoon, the restaurant has quickly won a five-star rating with customers raving about the food.
Nylia said her father and Ramirez use fresh ingredients and cook everything from scratch at the restaurant, including the desserts such as Tres Leches Cake, Choco-bread Pudding and Flan.
But it is the authentic signature main dishes from which the restaurant gets its name that has customers talking.
Dishes such as Pollo Habanero, a chicken dish with mushrooms smothered in habanero sauce and served with green beans and Mexican rice, and Habanero Enchiladas, are among their specialities.
For those who like their food milder, there is a wide array of dishes as well as a selection of nine different tacos including fish tacos and carnitas tacos.
But it wasn’t until they were approached by Michael Mason, a restaurant recruiter for Delivery.com, that they seriously began to consider the idea of delivery.
“I told Sergio and Jose that I was certain they would begin getting orders immediately. So many people I came across in Woodstock were telling me they were tired of being forced to choose between pizza and Chinese food when they wanted to order delivery. Now they are the first Mexican restaurant in Woodstock to deliver,” said Mason.
Habanero’s Taqueria is at 9550 Main St. They offer delivery to any location within 5 miles of their restaurant, Nydia said, including into Cobb County.
