JAC B. TALKS
As soon as you walk in Babalu Tacos & Tapas you're greeted with episodes of "I Love Lucy."
The restaurant was inspired by the show's character, Ricky Ricardo, and his famous song "Babalu."
Five locations in the south serve this upscale Latin-inspired cuisine and decor.
I started off lunch with table side guacamole. The sun dried tomatoes take this app to the next level! All the waitresses were wearing bandanas in their hair...maybe a nod Lucy??
Babalu's carnitas, pollo and carne de vaca tacos were just as tasty as the guacamole!
While the food was great, I was most impressed by the restaurant's mouth wash station in the bathroom. I kid you not, I went in there twice to use it.
On my second visit, I wanted to video tape it, but stopped to talked to a waitress instead. She said a young girl once came out of the bathroom with two cups of mouthwash. The little girl said she wanted to bring her mom a drink, just like the waitress did.
If you try this restaurant, I highly advise seeing the mouth wash station in action.
