Ate there last week. Service good. Food is ok. Not bad, not great. Atmosphere is very good, people having a good time. But the food seems too manufactured, kind of like a upscale t.v dinner. All the chips you can eat, I guess that's a good thing.

The Cabos Nacho is not only huge but has more toppings than any other nacho we've ordered. Seasoned ground beef, shredded chicken breast, beans, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, jalapenos on crisp chips... We always have to go to the chip basket to finish it. It varies a little each time but is always excellent and plenty for two. Decent mild salsa... More

First let be start by saying that Cabo's has been our go to Mexican Restaurant for years. We are frequent patrons and the food/drink/service are all usually consistently good. This however was not the case when we dined on 5/4. We had gone with friends and I'm not sure what was going on, but everything was off. Our margarita's were... More

We had lunch here. I was surprised by how reasonable the prices were because Mexican food relies on a lot of fresh ingredients and in the north you would pay double. The food came out lightning quick and was delicious. We had chips, salsa, a quesadilla, a pulled pork sandwich, a chimichanga and fries. Everything was superb. People in this... More

Decided to give Cabo's a try as it got very good reviews. We were greeted immediately by a friendly hostess, waiter was prompt and friendly as well. Chips and salsa were mediocre. Food came out in a timely manner and was hot. I had Cabo’s Camarones dinner....shrimp was in a very tasty sauce. The vegetables were not fresh, most definitely... More

I always get good food and service here, and you can't beat the price. This is definitely one of the best Mexican places in the area. They're almost always busy so they must be doing something right.

The family recently dined at Cabo's on Carmel Rd near the Fresh Market plaza. We had been by the place too many times to count but when in the area we always visited Bangkok Ocha (Thai) that is a family favorite. We decided we wanted Mexican and gave it a go. The restaurant is good sized and has a large... More

Dined last night with a friend at Cabo's. This is the best Mexican spot I have been to in Charlotte ( I have tried 3 others and been disappointed). Home made chips are fresh and crisp with a nice salsa. We ordered the guacamole as a side which was AAA+. Fajitas and a soup were our main courses and both... More
