Intrigued by the promise of Cuban flavors, my husband and I enjoyed a weekday dinner here after attending a free concert in a local park. The menu is a nice mix of tapas and entrees. I enjoyed a jerk chicken wing tapas and my husband had the jambalaya. My wings were as flavorful and tasty as any I've had. The... More

Wow what a place. I love the swinging chairs at the bar. The food is awesome and drinks are awesome too. And the Bartender Justin is fully engaged and you can tell he is very passionate for what he does. He can't stop raving about the Happy Hour and all the specials and how they make everything from scratch. I... More

Having lived in St. Louis for six years my husband and I have tried many fabulous restaurants. One of them was Boogaloo. Boogaloo is nestled in the eclectic Mapelwood neighborhood. It is a mix of Carribean/Creole flavors and the decor is fun and makes you want to stay for a beer. The bar has swings attached to it which is... More

We'd decided not to cook dinner on New Years' Eve, so we were looking for restaurants open. Pulled up Yelp and came up with a eatery we'd seen walking down Manchester Road in Maplewood and made a mental note to visit soon....then promptly forgot it. So seeing Boogaloo (7344 Manchester Rd, Maplewood MO 63143) on the list was a pleasant... More

I enjoyed the food - great wings and shrimp - tapas are the best. However, the drinks were ridiculous. I ordered a cucumber martini - the drink came out in a martini glass...that was less than half full but they charged me $10. We tried two other drinks on the menu and received little glass that probably held less than... More

Service is sometimes not as friendly or competent as I would like. The food is also sometimes not as well-prepared or delicious as I would like. However, when the restaurant is running at 100%, it's fantastic.

I just went to Boogaloo for a birthday dinner with my bestie and it was awesome. The swings are super fun and cute. I had the house half jerk chicken and it was amazing. Great flavors, I like you have some fried plantains to go with it, over a great dish. I also drank the Jazzed Plum. Very well made... More

The gumbo was fantastic, but I've had better pulled pork. My friends and I had a variety of dishes, and only two really liked their meals.

Although we should probably branch out more when visiting St. Louis, this place has proven to maintain its quality food. Truly tasty.
