We visited Cabo Wabo 6 years ago on our last visit to Lake Tahoe and we enjoyed it. This time was very different. We were told that on Monday's and Tuesday's they only serve a small menu at dinner time, (a bar menu). We ordered (to share) a small nacho and mahi mahi (?) tacos. The waitress suggested that we...

A girlfriend and I stayed in South Lake Tahoe for a wedding this June. There is not much going on during this off-season for Lake Tahoe, so when we wandered by Cabo Wabo on Saturday night we were just happy to find a place to hang out and have some late night cocktails (who wants to go to bed at...

I wasn't impressed with this location whatsoever. I've been to other Cabo Wabos and this one doesn't seem to be up to par. After seeing the quality of the service and food, we opted just to take shots at the bar and a cocktail and move onto the next, more entertaining, stop on our stay in Tahoe.

Don't waste your time. Very disappointed after hearing so many great things. Thought it would be festive like Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville in Vegas but very boring. Zero atmosphere unless you like the warehouse feeling with a couple of multi colored chairs and some pictures of Sammy...who cares! Service was so so....only three other tables and it still took ten minutes... More

I am not a lover of Mexican food but the salmon here, with a spice rub and a sauce may change my mind. I loved it! There Marquita's were VERY large. Thankfully they had a plastic glass with lid so i could take it with me. The chips and salsa were warm and tasty. There was just no room for... More

Saturday night at Cabo Wabo. Several bachelorette parties, and we did not see a single server. Had to go to the bar for every round of weak drinks. Cover band Mad Karma was decent.
