I love Boogaloo. The menu is great with a wonderful variety of flavors, and the atmosphere is super fun.

Fun place to try in Maplewood. The mojitos were excellent. Our waitress was very good
and recommened some very good choices. The empanadas were very good but my personal favorite were the ribs.. Very, very tender and tasty. Definately worth a try.

Went for my birthday dinner. I had a group of 10. Our server was great. The Happy Hour goes until 7pm which is clutch for working professionals during the week! Definitely recommend Boogaloo for anyone who loves cajun cuisine! The swings for bar stools are a nice touch too!

Food was prepared very well, however; topping and sauce distribution was not well placed. All sauces and jalapenos were in middle of sandwich.
Waitress decided to not use her notepad to write the order down because "it was on the other side of the room at my last table." Due to this, wife's sandwich was not made correctly.
Waitress did not come to our table to take order after 20 mins of being seated. Waitress only came to check on our drinks twice in our 50 min dinner date.

I really enjoy Boogaloo. I get the paella every time- it’s fantastic! The conch fritters were good, but are sadly not on the menu anymore. The sangria is great, but I wish the special one with elderflower liqeur would come back. However, they had the best Blood and Sand that I’ve had there, although I found it a bit pricey.
We ate at 530 and it was almost empty. On the weekend though, it gets packed and can be noisy. I suggest making a reservation then. If you go on a weeknight, you may not need one.

It was very enjoyable. First time for many of us and the food was excellent. Our server was very good and knowledgeable about drinks and the food. It was quite loud as there was a group of 15 next to our party of 6 but we still had a good time. Will definitely return!!

First time try for something different in Maplewood. Wonderful Cuban/Caribbean food. Loved the red beans and rice, mango slaw and a strange corn dish that was delish. Nice casual bar. Very polite service. Have to go back to try more!

We tried several of the tapas plates; craw fish cakes (excellent), spinach/artichoke empinadas (good), seared tuna (tasteless) and then shared the jambalaya (excellent). The ambiance is unique and upbeat and the service was excellent. Overall, a good value and nice neighborhood restaurant

Haven't been to Boogaloos in a few years. It is a fun place with unique swinging chairs at the bar. Food was very tasty and the price made it a great value. Unfortunately there were some revelers left over from the Mardi Gras celebration that were disruptive due to their nose level. Enjoyed the Tacos, Cuban Rice and Hurricane drinks. The Sweet Potato fries are worth the extra 5$. We will be going back again soon.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to go for dinner last minute for NYE. Boogaloo was very accommodating and was able to get us in! We ordered multiple tapas and jimbalaya and were not disappointed. Our server also was extremely helpful with navigating the cocktail menu and helped us choose some delicious drinks.

Date night with the husband. Maplewood was the convenient meeting place. I chose Boogaloo because of the first rate Cuban sandwich and hoped the spouse, a first timer here, would find an entree to order. He did -- jambalaya -- and everything was wonderful, Including the friendly waitperson and cocktails.

Very good food!! We had the rare tuna appetizer- cooked to perfection with a deliscious wasabi sauce followed by a tasty jambalaya - spiced just right and enough for two. Added a salad that was tasty. Highly recommend. This place should be much more crowded. Also, our server was conscientious and nice.
