Latin Flavor - Peruvian style !

More than Mexican, although plenty of the usual Mexican dishes are on the menu. Sabor Latino offers a good number of Peruvian dishes you simply will NOT find at the run-of-the-mill Mexican restaurant.

Excellent sea food. Better than most Mexican restaurants. Order the seafood soup and shrimp with garlic butter. You'll not regret it. The grilled meat combo is great too. Both the chicken and beef are tender and flavorful. Reasonable prices. Atmosphere is lacking, but who cares if you're into great food.

My group from the office goes here once a week and I usually stop for dinner at least once weekly. Everyone else sticks with the Mexican-style lunch combos because they are the best, but I am trying to get a taste of all the other Peruvian specialties. Even so, the steak and cheese quesadilla is my favorite. Chips and salsa... More

There are places almost exactly like Sabor Latino all over town; in my experience, it's not significantly better or worse than any of the others. The service is quick, and the food is usually quick. If you're looking for a fast, hot lunch, this is your place. They advertise all sorts of margarita and other drink specials, but I've never... More

Delicious food and a nice change from your typical Mexican dishes- although they have that if you want it.

Mexican-Peruvian food of reasonable quality but service not quite the same. In fact, they brought me a different entree that I had ordered and took another 10 minutes to bring the right one! Nevertheles, it is the only place in Birmingham, Al to taste some of the exquisite Peruviuan cuisine.

This restaurant is not your typical Mexican restaurant, by Latino they mean Peruvian and other Latino dishes and it's great. I had the Arroz con Mariscos and it was great, the calamari was a little chewy, but the flavors were great. Would go again

This is a restaurant offering Mexican food and some Peruvian food. Extensively knowing how Peruvian food tastes as one of the best cuisines in the world, this place falls well below expectations for it. The adobo de cerdo was actually cutted pork chops with a different sauce and the Peruvian tamal did not taste as such at all. I guess... More

We've been going to Sabor Latino for years. The atmosphere is pleasant—spacious, quiet, and relaxing. The food is excellent and the prices are fair. The menu offers numerous items we don't usually see on a Mexican menu. There is a special section for Peruvian dishes, plus a number of other offerings that have introduced us to South American cuisine. Each... More

Excellent Peruvian restaurant with Both South American and Mexican dishes. The food is always consistent and the prices are very reasonable. Try the aji de gallina or the mushroom, spinach quesadilla or really anything.
