“Great Mexican food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed happy hour drinks and dinner one night and enjoyed it so much we went back for dinner the following night. Happy hour prices good and servings generous.

“Good food but don't like the overpriced photo sales tactic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

It would've been a better experience if we were not being sold $15 photo of ourselves after being offered 'complimentary' couple postcard. It wasn't communicated as sales initially; I'm not sure how rampant this practice is in the area but this sure is the first time we encountered it. We ended up paying $15 for one picture wrapped inside a touristy carton frame because my partner couldn't refuse the salesgirl.

Other than that, the experience has been positive. We were happy with the food; we ordered carnitas wrap and rice and beans. Even the grilled paprika was tasty and has the right softness. The waiter was super friendly and helpful, the ambience relaxing (if a bit noisy) and interior cheerful. The price was relatively cheap considering the location - we paid less than $30 for two meals. The supposedly cheaper eateries 2 levels down would cost close to that minus the tip. So ideal for those exiting Kimmel tv taping, like us.

“Good Mexican Food for the Lively and Patient”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

Call me a curmudgeon but Cabo Wabo is not for me. The menu is actually not bad, trendy and a touch out of ordinary. And the food is good, tasty and well-prepared. But the ambiance is a little too loud for carrying on conversations and the service, while friendly, requires considerable patience. If you're in a lively mood, this environment could be enjoyable and fun. But for me, dining with a friend is more to engage in her company than to engage with the environment. While I've come here several times because I enjoy the food and drink, my overall dining experience has generally been marginally satisfactory because of the noise and service.
