When asked where to eat Mexican food we were directed to Cabo Wabo in the Casino and it wasn't just an eating place but a whole experience. The staff was courteous and friendly and the food had the great Mexican taste.

The food and service are adequate. Not outstanding but not bad either. The margaritas are pretty tasty. The place gets pretty loud at night so if you don't like that sort of thing, you should probably try someplace else.

Although the waitresses were very friendly (we dined with our then 5-month-old), the service was extremely slow. It is also super loud in here. I wouldn't recommend taking an infant or little ones here. We only ate here because it was in the hotel we were staying at. On the plus side, my virgin pina colada & crab enchiladas were... More

Stopped in mid-week for dinner. The restaurant was not crowded, college Basketball was on the screen. Two servers on duty took a while for service. Tables, dirty. Seats, dirty. Took a while did I mention that? Order was the Burrito w/beef and hamburger & curly fries, looked good on the menu. Delivery was just OK. To be honest I have... More

First - No Mexican beers on tap. Second - My friend ordered a half order of nachos as an appetizer. They came out with the meals instead. Third - I ordered the carne asada and asked for a couple fried jalapenos, like I typically get anywhere else. The waited said they could not do that, but said he would ask... More

Some of the best margaritas ever! Very good service, and we enjoyed our meal. They bring a variety of salsas to the table.

Service was great. Food was just average, more like Tex Mex, nothing to write home about. There was no wait time.

After a long drive we wanted a casual dinner in the hotel. We ordered chicken tacos and carne asada tacos. The "soft" tortillas were very dry and tasted like cardboard and the Spanish rice was hard like it had been sitting for hours. We ate the meat and left the rest. The chips were very salty, but the salsa was... More

We eat here practically every time we visit the area. As lovers of Mexican food I feel compelled to do so. It is all so tasty and the choices are abundant. It doesn't hurt that they also serve the best margaritas too. Love the décor and it is mildly reminiscent of Cabo Wabo in Cabo San Lucas. We also eat... More
