We've eaten at Cabo almost every time we visit our son in B'burg. Always very busy place, and you'll see why once you have the food. This was my first place to try fish tacos and I was pleasantly surprised. The were excellent!

We are in Blacksburg on a college visit and Cabo was recommended . Very good corn salsa with the chips and has the mahi and tuna tacos. Fresh, hot and delicious .

Great selection of inventive tacos. Wish I would have gone with one if the more "classic" options though. Margaritas we're good and the working mans margarita was strong enough and a great price. Enjoyed this neat little taco restaurant.

This is always one of our stops on frequent business/pleasure trips to VT. Nothing better than a summer evening on the patio with a fish taco loaded with fresh grilled fish and even fresher toppings. Add a specialty margarita and you made a great end to the day. The Charlotte location is good but this one is great.

Stumbled upon this wonderful culinary creation during my daughter's VA Tech orientation. Food is phenomenal, friendly service, excellent high end margarita. Starting with the chips and salsa - fresh fried chips and a corn/tomato salsa, outstanding. They have a range of margaritas. The "el cheapo", targeting students (or others on a tight budget), on up to premium $20 variety. If... More

Even though Guy went to the one in Charlotte, the food is pretty much spot on at this location as well. Service was awesome and I tried the BBQ Mahi Tacos that were show on the show. Beer selection was very good and prices seemed fair. I will go back if I'm passing through in the future...

My husband and I wanted to go there and try the food - it was very good! He had the tuna tacos (not my thing) and I had the beer-battered shrimp tacos - they were great! I also got the guacamole appetizer - it was a bit salty. But the service was excellent, restaurant and rest rooms were clean -... More

Innovative but unpretentious and reasonably priced Mexican food. I had the BBQ mahi tacos. The sauce was mildly smokey and complemented the fish and white cilantro sauce and "Mexican cole slaw" (I wonder what makes it Mexican?) really well. My son had the Tavarua Tuna tacos. The honey-wasabi sauce was applied in the right quantity; tangy, but not nose-stinging. Both... More

Tacos and entrees with less common combinations than you would find at your typical Tex-Mex restaurant. Fish tacos were on special the night we visited and they were excellent. There are other interesting choices such as a calamari taco. Prices reasonable. Lovely outdoor deck.

Love this place - I enjoy the atmosphere and repeatedly have the best fish taco of my life! The BBQ Mahi taco is where it's at. Queso is pretty tasty with a smokey flavor. The chips and salsa are a nice addition to start any meal.
