Description: Babalu Tacos & Tapas is a lively restaurant that uses fresh and local ingredients to create bold flavors. You will find a variety of authentic gourmet tacos and Spanish-style tapas with a Southern twist. Every item on the menu, down to the blue corn tortilla, is made from scratch daily - our famous guacamole is prepared tableside. Our bar carries the finest tequilas, and all drinks are handcrafted daily using fresh squeezed lemons and limes.

Sat outside. Enjoyed the atmosphere, the apps, and the drinks. The entrees were terrible, the meat was over seasoned and the corn tortillias were unedible. If I went back again, I would only get the guacamole.

This is the hot meet market in fashionable NE Jackson If you want to see peeps and don't care about the food, go there. They do have the best guacamole in town.

Went here with my daughter for lunch. The guacamole is excellent -- made at the table, however I felt very sorry for the waitress that had to carry the vessel that they make it in -- it is incredibly heavy -- I don't see how she got it to the table with the drinks on the tray.
The tapas we ordered were good, but the portion sizes are small and we ended up paying nearly $45 for lunch for the two of us. Would like to go back when the weather is better and sit on the patio.

It's different from anything else in Jackson. Fun atmosphere, great menu, I almost always order the special and it is always delicious. They also have great drinks.
