Arrived just before Happy Hour Special ended. Clean floors and tables. Great salsa with chips. Had the black and bleu steak special. Tasty and cooked to perfection. Great server. Had not been to Cabo's in few years. Past issues no longer exist.

We went to Cabo's for a late lunch. The food was good, but it was nothing special. The waiter was slow especially considering the lack of people in the restaurant. The prices are excellent and there is a wide variety of dishes to choose from....More

They don’t make places like this anymore. With very attentive service and best burgers and a very nice feel. Loved it there

It's not changed over the years, thankfully. Cabo's delivers a solid experience from chip to dip, margarita to iced tea and tacos to wet burritos. Fresh salsa, snappy service, good value. This is what America is supposed to eat, enjoy and support. The bad news,...More

Great Sunday brunch. The omelet specials are worth it. Bagels can be had, and the country fried steak & gravy is a comfort food.

When you want a nice Ahi Tuna appetizer and a Cobb Salad and among Enchiladas and others, this is your local spot! Wonderful, hometown atmosphere and service. You'll love it.

We stopped here when visiting the area, and really enjoyed it! The black beans are just incredible, as was all of our food. Enjoyed the local craft beers also!

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.
