These were some excellent Tacos. Not your normal Mexican taco either. I highly recommend this if in town.

I came here with some work colleagues after our conference at The Inn. Being an alum, everyone was asking me for restaurant recommendations and Cabo Fish Taco did not disappoint us! Delicious margaritas and even better shrimp tacos! We had a great server who even sang to us at the end of dinner when I mentioned his Juxtaposition t shirt.... More

We visited Saturday of homecoming weekend. It was very busy in the restaurant but we only waited 10 minutes for a table. Our server was prompt and very friendly. We all enjoyed different tacos and wraps. Our food was correct and served quickly. Drinks were refilled without request. We could not have asked for a better experience. We will visit... More

Went with friends at a busy Friday night on a VT football weekend. Despite the possible 45 minute wait our table was ready in 15 minutes. They have an app that puts you in their wait queue and notifies you when the table is ready. I had the salmon bowl - super!

Took my daughter out to Cabo FT for her birthday per her choosing. Fish tacos don't sound appealing to me so I tried a carne asada wrap. The wrap was okay. The flavor and combinations reminded me of Southern California cuisine. A southwestern corn salsa comes free with tortilla chips. Once again it was acceptable, but not what I would... More

So much better than the traditional Mexican restaurant. Best shrimp tacos I've had. Service good, primetime Friday evening, of course it's going to be a little busy, but not a long wait for food.

Best to visit when school is out. Worth the stop for something different than the usual local fare. However, the quality of the food seems to vary from visit-to-visit. That may be because many of our stops have been when most of the students are gone and the best cooks and managers may be taking a break, also. Warning: The... More

Everyone we visit our daughter at VT we always seem to end up at CFT tacos are great nice outdoor seating just be prepared to wait if you go at peak times but new online notification system works well and let's you check your wait time so you can roam around town and not miss your table

As a Tech alum, I looked forward to being in Blacksburg for a night this summer and knew I would be heading to Cabo to relive some of my favorite dinners in college. The food never disappoints, margarita was okay, service was lacking. I may be spoiled by the vibe in the Charlotte location since I've been away from a... More

This is a great place for tacos. You can eat outside or inside. The building is a very old refurbished building in downtown Blacksburg. across from the Tech Bookstore. The food is fresh, and the inside atmosphere is good -- but can get a bit loud, but eating outside is nice. It is a big college student hangout. Lots of... More
