Babalu Tapas & Tacos, which opened July 25, 2016, in the historic Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte, has been welcomed to the area with open arms. Babalu is part of the Eat Here Brands family of restaurants, which originated in Jackson, Mississippi, and has opened five stores across the Southeast.

A Child’s Place is a Charlotte nonprofit which aids in the placement of children and families in the event that they have lost their homes.

Mission Summit is an organization which helps individuals in realizing their outdoor, recreational and professional potential, while at the same time, helping fund the needs of cancer patients. Mission Summit focuses on encouraging and motivating others to achieve their personal and professional fulfillment in the world of the great outdoors.
“A significant part of Babalu’s culture is about giving back and supporting the community. It is something we believe in as a company as well as our entire staff,” said Bill Latham, CEO and President of Eat Here Brands, LLC, the holding company of Babalu “We were fortunate to have two outstanding charities, to support at our opening.”
Babalu donates to several different charities throughout the year. While guests enjoy tablemade guacamole or refreshing margaritas, they also support a family of restaurants that believes in helping those in need.
