Loved the grilled fish!

In town for college tour @ VT - wanted a nice (non-fast food) quick and affordable place to eat, with a college atmosphere. This place was perfect! We ordered the salmon guacamole salad and the grilled sea bass special - both were fantastic! Only waited 10 minutes for a table, which was easy as... read more

We loved the margarita and mojito. The fish tacos were great and so were the quesadillas. We enjoyed a table on the patio on a beautiful spring day. The service was great.

We stopped in for lunch and were happy to get a table outside since it was so nice. We got the spicy shrimp tacos, which were VERY spicy, but good. If you can't take the heat, skip these. I also had the jalapeño mashed potatoes as my side, which were delicious. We would definitely eat here again

We love fish tacos but typically they are small and fall apart on ya but NOT here! Service was unbelievably fast. They have neat drink specials each night. I could only eat one taco and the other came home and was consumed later as a late night snack. Not a fancy restaurant but a nice causal atmosphere that can have... More

Got the mexi mahi mahi burrito to go with a side of rice and beans. The restaurant was not busy. It's got a good college vibe and a decent bar. They offered me a drink while I waited which is always nice. The burrito was quite good. Will be back the next time I'm in Blacksburg.

I've visited this place many times. Great outdoor seating in the warmer months. Nice atmosphere inside when cooler. Used to visit Ensenada and Cabo when I was in college in SoCal many moons ago. The tacos made here are as good as any I've had anywhere. I know, "fish taco" doesn't stir your appetite if you've never had one. But... More

So much to love here! The shrimp tacos are a must try. The beer-battered and soy ginger are my favorites. There are also several vegetarian dishes on the menu -- the Burrito Verde is gigantic. Taking home half makes for an awesome lunch the next day. Margaritas range from a standard House style to much-pricier blends. I'm a cheap margarita... More

Went there for the first time and will definitely go back. My soy ginger shrimp taco was delicious. Menu has enough choices to satisfy any appetite. I ate at the bar and was given good service. Atmosphere was rustic. Oudoor seating available, but not when I was there due to weather conditions. It is located downtown near the university with... More

I had the Soy Ginger Shrimp Taco. It was unbelievable. My mouth is watering thinking about it. I look forward to going back the next time I'm in Blacksburg. The beer battered shrimp was so juicy and tasty.

I so wish you were good, cabo! I've eaten here periodically over the past 6 years. Usually when a friend wanted to go. Each time I decide to give it another shot and once again it'll disappoint. Oh well. When it's nice outside, it's a fun place to grab a drink. But skip the lackluster food.
