GROVETON — Very recently a new restaurant opened in Groveton; Habaneros is the name, and you can find it next door to Los Jalapenos Restaurant next to B&B Grocery.
The restaurant, formerly known as Wagon Wheel has some new owners, Edgar and Lori Abshire, and they serve up some excellent Tex-Mex food.
Manager and co-owner Lori Abshire sends out a big thank you to the residents of Groveton, who have been so wonderful with their support and patience while the new eatery gets settled.
“The folks here have been absolutely wonderful to us,” Lori said. “We plan on staying as long as Groveton will have us.”
The Abshires have been in the restaurant business for more than 20 years and bring their excellent venue to Groveton.
“We love the town and the people are so very friendly,” Lori said.
They offer seating for up to 70 and have a party room for those special occasions. Lori Abshire wants to thank Groveton for making them feel so welcome and look forward to many years of service.
“We have applied for a liquor license and are look forward to adding Margaritas to our menu real soon,” she said. “We are currently looking for local help as of now all of our staff comes from Lufkin and we would really like to hire some local talent.”
So, if you are in the mood for some fantastic Tex-Mex, look no further than Habaneros.
