Get Directions
There’s an airplane on a restaurant’s roof in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. A Piper Tomahawk airplane, to be exact. But don’t be alarmed! If you find yourself in Habanero’s Mexican Restaurant’s parking lot, you might think you’ve stumbled upon a crash site or a plane had to make an emergency landing (obviously on the restaurant’s roof and not in the parking lot…) But have no fear – that plane was put there purposefully.

Joe Lange and Vince Totta opened Habanero’s in 1996. As both owners were pilots, the restaurant’s flight theme was a natural fit. They bought the airplane, figured out how to anchor it to their roof, and the rest is history! The aeronautical theme goes behind their outside attraction. Inside, the theme continues in everything from the decor to the menus to the drinks (you can even take their “Jumbo Jet” burrito challenge). Habanero’s is also known for its mascot: “Habey, and the home of the flying pepper”.
