Absolutely tasty fish tacos. Freshly made tortillas. You can customize the fillings.
Saw a guy order a huge burrito with all kinds of fillings.
If I wrre in Austin, I would eat here weekly.
Next time I will try a burrito, probably will be enough for two meals!

This is literally my favorite place to eat in Austin. I would eat it every day. It's an excellent Friday after work place when you want something delicious to nap on lol. They take their tortillas and put them in this thing that blows them up like balloons and makes them soft. Then it's like pick all your fillings. Usually I get steak, rice, beans, peppers, squash, queso, pico, onions, jalapeños, and lettuce. Excellent burritos! Eat at Cabo Bob's if you visit. From like 11-1 be prepared for a line though

I have been enjoying fish tacos in Austin for nearly 30 years. Back then, there was only one place that served fish tacos. Now, fish tacos are common fare at seafood, Mexican and TexMex restaurants around town.

No need to drive around and take chances. No need to wait in long lines or over pay either. The one place you can be sure to enjoy the flavors, portions and price is here at Cabo Bob's. No joking...this is serious business. I can say they are better than the ones I have has in California at places in San Jose, San Diego, Fresno and San Franciso.

I ordered the Deluxe Fish Tacos. The order includes three tacos which are unique. For example, the tortillas are cilantro tomatillo tortilla, the second is an anch chilli and the third is a buttermilk tortilla. The filler ingredients are chipotle crema, pico-de-gallo with mango, guacamole, cheese, finely shredded cabbage, lime and fresh crispy fried fish.

The flavor is incredible. You can taste all the various ingredients from the crispy fired fish, avocado, cheese the smooth cream, tangy lime and spicy chipotle with a little crunch from the cabbage and finally the unique tortillas.

The color of the entrée matches the wonderful flavor.

I washed down my meal with a ginger ale which was a perfect pair.

They have all sorts of seating...booths, tables, height tables and outdoor patio dining. As busy as the place was during lunch, our group of five from work each got our order fast and sat together at a large round booth.

This is one of my favorite fish taco stops in Austin! The fish is fried and the chunks are decent size. Baja or fully loaded, burrito or taco, you can't go wrong! You should not leave hungry, and won't have to spend a lot on lunch. Baja fish tacos with water, $7. Get there a few minutes before 11 for a quick lunch, otherwise the line might be out the door. Definitely get a punch card, after six, the next is free, and chances are you will be back.

Similar setup- tell the nice people what you'd like in/on bowl or burrito or tacos. Everything is delicious. The homemade tortillas are yummy.
