Taqueria Habanero, located in midtown College Park, is the second location established by husband and wife duo Dionicio (Dio) Montero and Mirna Montero-Alvarado. With modest prices and a homestyle feel, Taqueria Habanero attracts many people of all backgrounds – even those accustomed to their abuelita’s tacos.
Taqueria Habenero’s street-style menu offers a range of both traditional and daring tacos – from grilled steak and shredded chicken, to beef tongue and grasshopper. With Dio from Mexico and Mirna from El Salvador, the couple’s dishes create a unique yet sensible flavor profile. Specialized cocktails like the Playa Margarita and the Watermelon Dream are just as compelling as their taco menu.
While the restaurant is a favorite amongst College Park locals, it’s ranked consistently among the best taco spots in the DMV, as featured in the Washington Post’s 25 best tacos in the D.C. area and The Eater DC’s 16 Outstanding Tacos to Try in D.C. While their critically acclaimed tacos attract people from all over, this restaurant is more than a place to grab a bite. Taqueria Habanero’s welcoming atmosphere encourages students, families, and communities to gather.
