We checked this place out on our first night they have awesome drinks and if you arrive after 10pm happy hour begins and all drinks are 2 for 1! The place is small and can get crowded. The food was just ok but we were there for drinks

Lots of fun with good drinks! Nice place to watch a game. It's probably worth the money to get the bigger cocktail glass and share

Was violently ill after eating chicken tacos there. I should have known better because the healthy grading out the front is now a B. Shame,cause it's otherwise a cool venue

The appearance of this small eatery reminds me of a taco stand/small eatery you'd see in Cabo yet there is plenty of seating. Our food was really good. My husband and I shared a 'giant' margarita, which is around $17 but worth it. Was enough to get buzzy and it tasted great.

We stopped at this place for a drink or two, we only needed one! The specialty margaritas are HUGE. I tried the cucumber one and it was delish. Wish we had one of these in Phoenix.

We had two massive 4 tequila shot margaritas in less than an hour, I could have easily piloted for Southwest Airlines and blown 0.08. At 50 yrs old I know watered down booze. But the nachos were fab the first night (Wed), on Sunday they were average.Both nights were watered drinks.

My son and I ate at the Cabo Cantina for dinner. I had the guacamole and chips (Yum) and my son had a burrito with rice. The burrito could easily be shared as it was bigger than a chipotle burrito. The Cabo Cantina offers happy hour discounts etc. It's worth at least 1 visit and they have several locations.

I entered this quite small place on a Sunday evening. Sat down inside, and tried to get the attention from one of waitresses. Nothing. Not for 20 minutes or so (tv was on so I did keep an eye on it). In the end I realised that this was not going to be a good experience and walk out -... More

This is a funny place, with really mixed patrons. We sat next to a construction crew on one side and a group of Gucci-clad ladies on the other. There always seems to be Happy Hour and the food was very good. One of the starters was MacnCheese with fish and jalapenos! Never had that before, but it was totally worth... More
