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.
The shrimp tacos and crab empenadas were delicious. I love Boogaloo!
Always very good. With a Fun vibe and excellent cocktails.
We love the menu, drinks, and especially the personal and efficient staff.
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.
I have never had a bad meal at Boogaloo. Their curried hummus is my absolute favorite!!
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!!
Really loud, not really what was expected. Couldn’t really talk because of noise. Service was fair, but could have been more attentive. Food is excellent but expensive for me.
Boogaloo was so accommodating to our group of 14! The food was great and we had a great time. Would definitely return and recommend!
The food and drinks were fantastic. There were 13 of us, and they ended up being busier than usual for a bad-weather Thursday. Food, drinks, and service were great
Took 30 mins for drinks and over an hour for food and only 3 other couples on the restaurant. Door was ok but service was terrible
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!
I had great service!
Everyone loved this restaurant. Great food & prices. Looking forward to going back.
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
Good service, remember to refil waters and work on child options. But we love it here!!
The best tapas I've had in town. Roasted plantains were delicious, as was the pistachio crusted cheese. Mussels were exquisite, and I a m a mussels connoisseur. Will be back soon.
I hadn’t been to Boogaloos in a while. It did not disappoint. The tilapia was very tasty. We also had the calamari which was also superb. I’ll be back.
The good was very delicious
Everything was delicious. We had the Creole Ménage a Trois. The crawfish cakes were good but not a lot of crawfish in them. We will be back
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.
I took some friends from out of town to Boogaloo and everyone enjoyed it and had a great time.
We had heard great things about Boogaloo from our daughter and had a very enjoyable meal last Friday night. the ambience was fun- love the old car table- the food was good and our server was excellent! We will be back!
We had a great night at Boogaloo.
Justin the bartender was spot on with his recommendations of the BBQ Shrimp, jerk wings and friend cheese...it was an awesome nights playing on the swings at the bar!
This place is great! We sat in the swings at the bar and had a wonderful dinner. The bartender gave us great food recommendations, and our drinks were fantastic. We will definitely be back!
New Year’s Eve
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. We will definitely be back!
So many choices. We had a group of six and sat in the window. Fun table. We shared Tapas and drinks. All were yummy. The ribs won.
We had a large group on a Saturday night. The service was efficient and friendly. Our friends were from out of town and were blown away by the quality of the food and loved the ambiance.
Food was excellent. We had a number of tapas, jambalaya, and sangria. Everything was delicious. The waitress was a little forgetful but the place is fun overall for a night out.
I have not had a bad meal there! I LOVE the curried hummus!
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.
Food was pretty good. Very few people in there and the service was terrible. The bartender was completely inattentive. I'll go back, but I'll try the service at a table instead of the bar.
Always a good time at Boogaloo, food and service is excellent.
A great overall evening. An exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Wonderful food and drink. We will be back!
