Consistently good food, happy place to relax with friends. Love the Sunday morning brunch, and the menu with healthy choices included.

Whether you are there for lunch or dinner you can always be assured of a fantastic meal. Cabo's has something for everyone. My favorites include crab cakes, fish tacos, buffalo wings and the supreme burrito, just to name a few. Certainly ranks as one of Tallahassee's finest restaurants.

My family used to live in Tallahassse and would stop here often for lunch. Now we live out of state and still visit Cabos every time we're in town for a visit. We ate there for lunch in August and had excellent service (server and management both stopped to chat with us) and as always, great food! We love their... More

We are big fans of Cabo's - always a fun vibe. The owners live in our subdivision and are caring and compassionate for the community and its residents. Good food, reasonably-priced; very vintage-beachy (which I love) and although noisy, I always feel upbeat when I go in there. Lots of variety with the food along with price points. I'm a... More

Dinner at Cabo's with a group of six from Australia. Our group ordered crab cakes, glazed pork sirloin and steak. All meals came with complimentary salad and sides. Pork was perfectly grilled and it came with a well balanced Habenero glaze. Grilled crab cakes contained plenty of crab meat. The standard of food exceded expectations. Mike the owner was a... More

The place looks like it needs an update inside and out. First impressions not the best, especially restrooms. The food was much better than expected. Burritos were very tasty. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The drink prices were reasonable. Worth giving a try if wanting to branch out from the same old chain places.

Cabos falls into my standby place. It is consistently good, not great; affordable, not cheap; friendly, not pretentious. It can get crowded and noisy but that is actually part of the charm. I wouldn't travel across town for it, but if you are in a hotel along the parkway then it is one of your better bets.

We were definitely impressed with Cabos. I was skeptical of the appearance from the outside, but since it had so many good reviews, we finally tried it out and I'm glad we did. The food was utterly delicious with great presentation, the staff was friendly and attentive, the prices were very reasonable, and the atmosphere was super relaxing and down-to-earth.... 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.
