I love Mexican food, and I have had the pleasure of eating at several Mexican (REAL MEXICAN) Restaurants in my life. We flew into Tallahassee this morning and decided to go to Cabos Island Grill and Bar for a late lunch and drinks. The salsa...More

My wife and I were going to a play at FSU and wanted to have a casual dinner on the way. While I've eaten at Cabo's for lunch many times, it is not convenient to my home for dinner. It was kind of on the...More

I have been going to Cabo’s since it was mostly a small shack with almost no indoor seating. I went recently with friends and was pleased to find the food to still be very good and the atmosphere to be a little off-beat and fun....More

The atmosphere is congenial, be it waiters or fellow diners. It's not a space where you feel awkward. A great place to meet friends and have a great meal, or just have a beer.

The ingredients are always fresh and the food delectable. Seasoning is sometimes a bit lacking but that’s more of a personal preference. Love going to Cabo’s any chance I get.

This place is a Tallahassee tradition. It's a local place specializing in fresh food at reasonable prices. During the week you can get an entrée and drink for $8-$9 bucks and it's tasty.

Cabo's is a long-time local hang-out. The service is always friendly and quick. The atmosphere is casual and easy going. I can't comment on most of the menu because I have my dish-- Black Bean Wet Burrito. It's nice and big and the black beans...More

Unigue atmosphere with a great wait staff. The food is very good and the prices are very reasonable. Generally crowded so get there early! Love the fries!

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.
