This was the first place in Cabo we found to dance on top of the bar! We were determined to find somewhere to dance on top of the bar. Not only did this place allow it, but they encouraged it! They played music, gave us shots, blew whistles and everything! It was awesome, so we bought souvenir tees.

We stopped here while on our own private bar/shopping crawl......what a great little place! The bartenders were very accommodating and even gave us free shots when they overheard it was our honeymoon. The shirts were really cool and inexpensive so we had to get some! The locals next to us were going on and on about the food and how... More

This is one of our favorite places to go when we go to Cabo. Last year Gene had a card trick man come to our table, he was so great and entertaining. I hope you can post soon how you faired through the storm. Hope to see you in November!!! Prayers to all your staff and your family!

Found this place by accident in a rainstorm. We stayed for the nachos and good prices on pretty much everything. Totally exceeded all of my expectation. And while in the place, we met the owner, Gene, who was a really nice guy with a cool story. We ended up going back several times on our vacation and met our favorite... More

Whenever we are in Cabo our first stop (and last one) is always Happy Ending Cantina. This trip was no different--stopped in four times in six days. Axel and Pedro yelled at us as soon as they saw us, after a year's absence. It was just as if we had never left. The food is first rate, the beer is... More

Our second trip to Cabo meant our first stop was at Happy Ending Cantina. Walked in to be greeted by Axel, just like we'd never left. The drinks are still great and cheap. The food is fantastic. Had hoped to watch the Vikings game there on Sunday but the channel wasn't working. Pedro took us next door and had the... More

The Happy Ending is our favorite place to go in Cabo. The owners Gene and his wife Regine are two muy simpatico. We left our cozy hotel and walked into town hoping that we might find them working. The manager told me that he had just dropped El Jefe off at the airport. Oh well, there's always next time.
