Habaneros Mexican Grill

A few weeks ago, Mark and I were in Trinidad and ended up eating in a tiny Mexican restaurant called Habaneros, I mean tiny. The food was great! It turns out they have a bigger place – at least three times as big – near Cactus Flower on the north side of Pueblo. The food was equally great. I had chicken tacos, really spicy. I liked the colorful furniture too. The menu is huge, so we will have to back often to try it all. And, of course, I forgot to take a picture of the food.

Another candidate for a repeat

Rocco’s Riverside Deli (1300 W 4th St ) has fresh food made-to-order. It’s clean and friendly – Coco took our order and made sure it was correct. I had a panini and Mark had a salad; both delicious. It’s a busy place. Mark said: another visit soon.

I am still working on how to do a restaurant blog. I forget to take a photo of our food until I have eaten some, and that’s just not a good picture to post. Trust me: it looked great!


I convene the group Pueblo Makes. We are the people who support makers. We include schools, colleges, universities, libraries, makerspaces, maker groups, etc.

We are working now on adapting for our use Mark Hatch’s list of verbs in The Maker Movement Manifesto: MAKE, SHARE, GIVE, LEARN, TOOL UP, PLAY, PARTICIPATE, SUPPORT, CHANGE. We have added ADVOCATE and PROMOTE, and CURATE. We have groups working on answering the question: what does this word mean to Pueblo?

Email me at janemfraserphd@gmail.com if you would like to join the group.

#1, 2, and 3 of 100 Restaurants

Mark and I have now had lunch at El Nopal (1435 East Evans), Momo (716 N Santa Fe), and Rockee’s (123 N Main). Since both El Nopal and Rockee’s are Mexican, we had the same items to compare. I had Mexican pizza and Mark had chile rellenos. Same name, very different, all good! How do they keep the tacos so crisp under all the meat, chile, cheese, beans, and rice? Both places seem very successful, with regular customers. “Medium” hot chile (actually half hot and half mild)? I drank a lot of water at Rockee’s.

We have eaten at Momo many times, but not recently. It is still very good. The three of us (our neighbor Jessi joined us) had a variety of food and it was all good.

Remember that I don’t intend to do detailed reviews here. I also should state that Mark and I have polo shirts with the logo “easily amused” so we aren’t fussy people. We like food and we love Pueblo.
