Is that yellow airplane on the roof of the restaurant, real? SURE IS…It’s a PIPER TOMAHAWK
Habanero’s is proud of its aeronautics heritage. Our founder, Joe Lange, shared a passion in flying. Being a successful business man, Joe understood the importance of a great eye catcher for his new restaurant. So in 1996 he took the engine out of his own personal Piper Tomahawk plane and had it hoisted on top of our building. What came of Joe’s inspiration was the creator of our mascot, Habey. Habey is known for being the flying pepper. So hence our name Habanero’s Home of the Flying Pepper took off. Each of our staff is considered to be a part of Habey’s Flight Crew and intermixed in the sounds of our restaurant are the sounds of planes flying by.
