We went to Cabo's twice. Each time the staff has been friendly, food was good. There's outdoor seating available, complimentary tortilla chips, and the drinks were a good value. We will definitely come back when we visit Carpinteria again!

Great food, service, and well priced. I like that I can order large meals for the family and have a top shelf tequila while I wait.

After spending the day at the beach we just didn't feel like cooking so we decided to hit up Cabo's. We had been there before but it had been a few years. We walked from the camp site ready to eat. It was a bit busy as it was Saturday night and open mic night (Jason Paras; he was pretty... More

We decided to try Cabo's after a day at the beach. The girl at the front counter was very friendly. I ordered the 2 pc chicken platter, my husband had "some kind of fajita stuff". (his words, not mine) He said it was OK. My chicken consisted of a drumstick and a thigh. There was not even enough meat for... More

You buy at the counter, and they bring your food to you. Service was quick. Food was tasty. I had the best tacos I've ever had. They were the tri-tip on flour tortillas. The large Cabo salad in a tortilla shell was also a hit! Additionally they had corn dogs and chicken fingers that the kids enjoyed. There's a bar... More

Cabo's is a busy restaurant for good reason. It's not fancy, lots of outdoor seating, good wine and beer and the food is really good. We totally enjoyed it. The loaded nachos are a meal by itself. I had the roast chicken and it was tasty and tender but not spicy. Can't go wrong.

This is my first visit to Carpenteria but we stumbled on this place while walking around town. Very good fish tacos. We had the grilled Mahi Mahi and it was tasty, although I will admit that I prefer Wahoo's recipe which has the blackened fish. That said, you couldn't beat the weather and the atmosphere was relaxing. Will definitely add... More
