This is one of our go to eateries in Tallahassee. We love the laid back atmosphere and we always see friends there. The food is good and great prices. We eat Mexican choices the most. I love their fish tacos! When our kids were in school and playing sports we would all go here after games to grab something to... More

I have been going here a long time. Mexican style food that's not weighted down with junk. Seafood dishes are usually good and even though it would be a waste to get burger here, they are good too. Usually busy with locals which is all the review you really need. Not a vegatarian hangout but my veggie friends like it

A very broad selection of choices, not high cuisin, but all the items are pretty good. Seafood sandwiches are best item IM. Their pseudo Mexican food isn't bad, but not terribly authentic. Large choice of beverages. Service usually very good. Can be tight at certain times. Their Sunday Brunch is really good.

Located near the Governor's Square Mall, this grill and bar offers a very colorful Caribbean island atmosphere. Food is good and excellent service is expected by the people who work here. My shrimp tacos were excellent and our son said the fish tacos were also very good. My wife had a grilled cheese sandwich and was also impressed by the... More

Came in after an evening of shopping and wanted the burrito bowl with an added twist. I added chips and guac. They took the chips and made a bowl and then layers all the ingredients. Something I wanted in compared to a taco salad was a hit and a smaller version. Love me some Cabos.

Located behind the Cabo island bar on the side of the building, everything here tasted really fresh. We started off with some chips and salsa which I believe are made in house. For dinner I ordered a combo: a hard shell taco, a enchilada supreme and a beef and bean burrito. My favorite was the burrito followed by the taco... More

Was looking for a place for a quick lunch before business meetings, and chose this place based on reviews from TripAdvisor. Food was good and service was good. Salsa was very good!

Near the end of week one of vacation and I was craving Mexican food. So rather than ordering seafood, I had a cheese enchilada and the beef tostado. Both were really good and filling. A little confusing to get to for an out of state visitor. The entrance is actually on the back side of the shopping center.

Hard to find but look for it great food. Good folks and service and surfing theme with all kinds of boards on walls and ceiling and history of their surfing trips around the world.

My wife and I have been dining at Cabo's over 18 years. We love the atmosphere, great variety of food and especially the pancakes at the Sunday brunch. Other favorites include the Mahi fish tacos, pork chop specials, and Grueben sandwich (grouper/Rueben sandwich) Besides all the good food, the service is great and prices reasonable. For a casual dining experience,... More

CLOSED MONDAYS... SUNDAYS WE SERVE BRUNCH FROM 9 AM. TO 2 PM DINNER AT 4 PM 9:30PM . Check out our newly added Patio!! We have been here for 29 years. If you are expecting a flashy new restaurant with all new furniture and bathrooms the size of living rooms we may not be your spot. But if good, fresh, reasonably priced food is what you are after we may just be it!. The center has been here a lot longer, being built about 1960. We are locally owned and one of the few, if not the only restaurant, in town & maybe anywhere, that provides health care for our employees. We have a diversified menu, offering vegetarian dishes, Our own idea of Mexican Food (No Lard in our beans) when possible, locally caught fish and shrimp, sandwiches, salads & upscale dinner specials at down home prices. We run our 200+ seat operation with one household double door freezer. We have the best margaritas (try our Shipwreck...) hand cut fries (voted #1 by the viewers of WCTV) and some say the best Burger for the buck in Tallahassee. We would like to mention that we have gluten free tortillas, and if wine is your thing, Bring in what you really would like to have and for nominal $6 bucks we will cork it. Please be aware that we get busy and when we do, it can get loud. If for any reason you aren't happy with either the service or the food please tell us. We are human, we make mistakes, and occasionally it happens. Thanks for taking the time to read this & thanks for supporting locally owned establishments. Mike Ferrara & Bobby Staerker.
