Went to Cabo Wabo for a quick bite before a show. Our server could not have been anymore attentive and friendly! The food was very bland, maybe because we are accustomed to great Tex Mex living in Dallas!

Many times I've visited Harvey's Lake Tahoe and only been in Cabo Wabo for a cocktail. My last visit we started with Happy Hour in Cabo Wabo, our waitress Tesa , was right on our table with menus , suggestions, specials! Our Happy Hour Cocktails and Appetizers were wonderful! Made to perfection! The waitress was very attentive with us .... More

Not particularly inviting, in any way. I find the food at Cabo Wabo to be completely uninspiring and average at best.

Not quite the Cabo Wabo I'm used to - however it was acceptable. Good appetizers and the chips were hot. Service was impeccable. I enjoyed the chimichanga appetizer. There was enough food to make a decent size entree.

The band that was playing was very good. It was really hopping after the concert let out. Drinks were good.

Worst service we have experienced in a long time. After waiting very patiently for 45 minutes after placing our order we were finally able to flag down our server/bartender and asked about our meals. Instead we received a snotty attitude and absolutely no apology. Would not recommend this place to anyone. We were not the only ones to receive this... More

We stopped in on our way to an outdoor concert at Harvey's. We waited over 20 minutes for a table when half of the tables in the restaurant were empty. There were plenty of servers so I don't know what the holdup was. Finally a couple that came in after us asked if they could seat themselves in the bar.... More

But it sure wasn't Mexican! Four diners, four different dishes...burrito, salad, tacos, etc. Nothing had any flavor at all. Salad was limp and watered down. Even extra salsa and hot sauce couldn't save these dishes. The only good part was the chips and salsa, and the overwhelmed waitress that still was fairly attentive and definitely willing to banter.
