The food here was excellent. I highly recommend the queso dip! Also the $4 margarita was very good. Plus they had nice outdoor seating.

This is a spectacular restaurant! The food is as good as anything in the region. Getting there is not so fun! The parking lot is very small so parking close is for a lucky people. The town has put in new "state-of-the art" parking meters. To pay for them they raised the parking fees to excessive levels! The new meters... More

Sometimes restaurants in college towns fail to meet expectations of quality or cleanliness but Cabo meets the mark. The tacos are fresh and excellent in their hand made tortillas, the staff was really friendly and attentive and the restrooms and dining area were clean and well maintained.

Food was delicious! Fresh ingredients, and great service! I had the Bourbon bacon Mahi, Mahi-very tasteful, would have liked more toppings ( not much lettuce, avocado nor cheese). Tortillas had a great taste!

My friends and I were visiting from out of town and had no idea about this place. We drove down Main Street in Blacksburg and thought a baja seagrill sounded good. We ordered drinks, appetizers,and entrees with no disappointments. The food, service, and atmosphere were FANTASTIC! We already have it on our list when we return to the area.

Okay, not great. Had four different tacos.. The Spicy Thai came with tofu but I changed to fish. It was number 1, then the shrimp with much the same sauce, then the buffalo shrimp, last the tuna..

I had the Soy Ginger Shrimp Taco which I would order again when visiting Virginia Tech! The Most Delicious Taco I've ever had! I love the soft shell, but the sauce is "to die for"! Also, loved the pasta with spicy cheesy sauce..YUM!
