Our group of birthday girls (all born in the same month) had a wonderful evening out at Babalu Grill. From the prompt service to the tasty drinks to the delicious main courses, we enjoyed it all. The ropa vieja--a shredded beef dish--was excellent. A very fun evening out!

Baltimore Magazine is right it IS "the BEST Latin restaurant" in Baltimore. The food was outstanding. It made you wonder were you in Cuba or in Baltimore. The atmosphere is awesome and makes you feel like Desi or Lucy are going to come

If you're from Miami or Cuba, you're going to feel right at home! If you're not, you're going to feel like you are for a night! Everything's great! From food, to ambience, to music! I recommend most anything on their menu. On weekends....
