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.

Very unique place. The barbarita was very good. The tamarind margarita was very unusual - not bad, but not that good, either. I couldn't get past the brown color! Queso and chips were excellent. Tacos were pretty good, but I didn't care for the tortillas.

Babalu is definitely one of my favorite spots in Jackson. Try some of my favorites:
Tableside Guacomole
Steak on a Stick
Carne el Cerdo tacos
Torta Cubana

And for a great cocktail try the Baba-rita or the Martinez!

Ecclectic food and cocktails. Great atmosphere and the waitstaff was attentive. We're looking forward to going back to try more menu items on our next visit to Jackson.

My wife and I stopped in this place tonight and it was busy. The bar area was full and we had to wait a few minutes for a table for two for dining. The tableside prepared quacamole was fresh (of course) and delicious! The serving of chips with the guac looked small, but we had left over chips at the end of two avocado guacamole. We both opted for the chopped salad with added grilled chicken. The varieties of flavors and textures in the salad made it an absolute delight to eat as we decompressed about the day. We'll be back!
