Missing: 15-Year-Old Waltham Girl

What's Up with Habanero's in Waltham?

Habanero's is located at 484 Moody St. in Waltham.

Habanero's Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar has "closed for renovations," according to a sign on its doors.

As of Monday, a sign saying the eatery had "closed for renovations" was hanging on its front door at 484 Moody St.

Whether the restaurant has closed for good is unclear. The License Department told Waltham Patch it had not been notified as to whether the eatery had closed for good. The eatery's all-alcohol license is currently active.

The last post on the restaurant's Facebook page was on Dec. 20. The pages makes no immediate mention of closing. 

Attempts to reach owner Terry Knight were not successful.

Looks like a case of the abused apostrophe on that sign!

Maybe all if the freezers and microwaves broke so they had nothing to serve since they don't do fresh.

I bet that Charcoal Guido's expands into this space! The owners of that CG also own the building.

I've had good dining experiences at Habanero's. Have no clue as to what's happened. Does anyone else feel like this is a "jinxed" location, even though it's a perfectly good spot? I'm talking history, here... While we're at it does ANYONE have a clue about that Indian restaurant, I think Dosa Factory, which seems to have been standing there, unopened, for the longest time? Also: Bad news about BU's Center for Digital Imaging Arts leaving Moody Street. I think that's a real loss. We really need a lot to put new life into Moody Street; we need vision and ability to make it easier for various, attractive businesses to open. Many of the restaurants (and Lizzy's!) are fine, and it's great to have the Embassy Theatre. The Indian grocery stores seem to be doing well. But it just takes more to attract people from morning to night. I know, this is an OLD discussion. But I'd love to see more revitalization. That's my two cents worth.

There was another short-lived restaurant (can't remember name) before Habanero's; they made tacos and burritos; served like Chipotle and Moe's does (assembly line). There was supposed to be another restaurant (Hungry Coyote?) in that spot before then, but it never opened. All this stuff goes back for years, so perhaps you are dating yourself! The only shoe store I'm aware of is Harry's Shoe Store, long replaced, although I love the chiseled name in the store front--it's still there.

Wow...that article could be published today, and it would be up-to-date. How sad is that.

I like Haberneros. The food is always very good and so are the drinks and Will the manager always shakes my hand.

Tango Mango was the restaurant before Habanero's. Not there long at all. Habanero a recently had health visit issues, but nothing major (reported anyway) that would've shit them down. Just some vents and things that needed to be cleaned, I believe.

Shut them down.
