“College vibe - good food”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

A Nice place to eat in a college town with a definite college vibe. The tacos are excellent, very good guacamole, great service. It gets very full, loud and crazy as the evening goes on, but still a fun place to eat with good food consistently. Husband had Rasta Pasta and it was good. We tried 3 different tacos and all were tasty and filling. We have eaten here on several trips to VT.

“Good Food / College Kids Favorite”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

You will find great fish tacos here. Don't come for the decor or cleanliness as it is definitely a college town establishment that brings in the college drinking / partying crowd in the evenings. The service was not quick, but if you were ok sitting outside enjoying the cool evening weather and taking in the college scenery, it will be an enjoyable experience. Order a beer, some chips & salsa and chill out and relax.

I ordered 8 platters to go and my guest were thrilled. We loved the soy/ginger shrimp and the salmon!

“No better place in good weather!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I'm a regular here, especially when the weather warms up and the patio seating area is open. There is nothing more pleasant on a Blacksburg summer evening than a night outside at the Cabo patio with their signature workman's margarita in hand. Best and cheapest margarita in town. ($1 off margs on Mondays and Thursdays, 5 - 7 PM) Cabo wait staff treats their local regulars well - their clientele range from college students, to families, to retired folks. Everyone is greeted with a basket of tortilla chips and their home-made fresh corn salsa dip.My recent low-carb go-to fav on their fusion menu has been the Cabo salmon salad. Their stand-alone salad is good too and the beer-battered fish tacos are an old standby with a variety of sides to choose from. Anything I have ordered has been delicious.

“Great margaritas, so-so food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Always enjoy the margaritas, but have not been able to find a dish that is very good. Have tried many different items, but the results are always the same....just okay.
