I actually enjoy the ambiance and of course the food here. They don’t disappoint on flavor and serving size. No complaints form anyone at our table. Definitely going back to try additional dishes.

This is really hard to beat for a mid-range priced place. The Grouper was fresh (a major necessity!!), and cooked to perfection. I'd also recommend the crab cakes as the good ones (absent filler) are hard to come by. Great local place.

Beachy feel in Tallahassee surf board's hanging from the ceiling. I typically eat here one a week. Cabo's has great lunch specials the ultimate wet burrito supreme being my favorite. If you're a crab cake fan you have to try Cabos.

I've eaten here a few times, both at lunch and for dinner. The food has consistently been delicious and service very good. I highly recommend you try the black beans and rice. I was surprised to find they are some of the best I've had....More

The ahi tuna is surprisingly exceptional as is the service. The prices are quite reasonable and food selections in seafood and Cobb Salad are exceptional.

Cabo is a Tallahassee classic restaurant that should be on everyone’s must-do We ate here for lunch and my favorite dish was the rice and beans. Everything on their menu is very tasty.

I love Mexican food, and I have had the pleasure of eating at several Mexican (REAL MEXICAN) Restaurants in my life. We flew into Tallahassee this morning and decided to go to Cabos Island Grill and Bar for a late lunch and drinks. The salsa...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.
