We didn't eat here, but the drinks and music made for a great experience for us. Despite the crowd drink service was prompt and courteous. The band "Gotcha Covered" did a great job putting out the crowded pleasing dance grooves.

We've eaten here before and the food is pretty decent. On this visit, the tortillas were almost unheated, tearing apart if handled, and the beans with our meal were cold. Not sure if it was the kitchens fault or the order sat too long waiting for wait staff but was a definite miss this time! No chips and salsa were... More

This is a nice place for drinks. We had the margaritas and they were great. The salsa was very spicy but good. The food is good. Our bartendar was great and very friendly and helpful.

I had low expectations of this place and was proven wrong. Excellent chips and salsa, good selection of drinks, which were quite tasty, and very friendly service. Despite it being Christmas they were open and cheerful. If I come back to the area I would happily eat here again.

I really like Sammy's tequila here. The food is decent. Always a fun place when it is crowded. Hard to find down in the tunnel between Harveys and Harrahs.

I didn't eat here but they had a nice bar area and good bands at night. It was a great place to mingle with others.

Used to come here years ago and t always seemed more lively back then. We went backs. Few nights just to check atmosphere but it was pretty empty when we went in. Not saying it's bad we just happened to be there when it was dead and that wasn't what we were looking for.

We went here on a Saturday night and it was awesome! Amazing male bartender who could make old drinks that were no longer on the menu. The baseball playoffs were on the tv! It seemed like it would be a fun place to watch some games on football Sunday...wrong! The bar was dead for the 1pm football game. The female... More

We have always loved Cabo Wabo!! We stopped in for a margarita and some chips on Saturday afternoon. The drinks are good but the bartender was not very friendly. We were the only people at the bar for quite some time and the bartender was not around very much. I will go back again and give it another shot.

This is a nightclub that would be great if a decnt band was playing there, but we saw a terrible cover band that sounded like they needed a few more months in the garage. It was so bad in fact that we left to go listen to Karaoke instead!
