We were directed by a family member to try out The Cabo Flats Mexican restaurant to enjoy the company of eleven friends. We sat down fairly quickly and received the usual greeting of the waiter trying to sell us an alcoholic beverage right away which we ordered their margarita which was $7, however was surprised to find it watered down, just lots of ice in margarita mix with a little tequila, not as good as Chili’s or Red Lobster’s margarita, and they are not great either. Our service was quick at first when we received the chip and salsa which most of our grouped very much. If you want to go and drink expensive but mediocre drinks with good salsa and peppery chips than you may like this place.
After receiving the drinks the service started slowing down. We were there at least ten or more minutes when we were finally asked if we wanted to order.
The décor was Ok, and the music was modern and we thought it was too loud. The sound track tape repeated more than three times while we were there. Four or five of us noted the poor taste of music and the poor decision of the management to have it so loud and in our opinions damaged the atmosphere.
We had looked over the big menu with many offers and ordered out typical American-Mexican fare. My wife and mother-in law ordered the Taco salad with chicken and I ordered the BIG steak Burrito. The meals took a long time to be prepared, a very long time. We were visiting with friends we had not visited with in over ten years so the time needed for the meals was not noted. But then one in our party asked;"Hey, when are we getting our dinners? What time did we get here?"
About 60 seconds later two waiters came to our table with the food. Most of us felt the meal seemed to be the normal Tex- Mex standard from anywhere meals, and not the value this menu asked for. The taste was OK but again the same as anywhere else, and the service was almost none existent after the meals were brought out. But we were all hungry and this meal was satisfying.
When we were finished we started looking for the waiter. But the waiter had disappeared. Ten minutes, fifteen minutes, maybe twenty minutes before the waiter returned. Our dishes had been cleared by workers other than our waiter. We asked another worker where our waiter was. We were finished and wanted to pay the bill and go home. FINALLY he returned but started asking about desserts but we asked back about the bill. We had been there for quite a while and wished to leave. The waiter again vanished and again we had to ask someone else to find the waiter, who then came to us with our bills and we right way found many errors. The Taco salads were on the menu listed as beef, but two in our party wished for chicken instead of beef. The waiter had added for Extra Chicken and that had a $4 charge for each. The manager had to clear this one up. The other errors were finally fixed but the clock had passed another 20 minutes. We wanted to add only 10% or 12% for the BAD service but they automatically took 18% as many restaurants do with parties over eight, we were eleven. We had enough of Cabo Flats and for the extra three or four dollars taken from our change for the tip decided not to waste anymore time waiting on these people and instead writing this letter and asking everyone to go somewhere else if they are looking for a pleasing night.
Now, I will have to have a talk with my family member who recommended Cabo Flats……lol

Had some beers and lunch during the football games on Sunday. The atmosphere is fun and the food was good. The outdoor seating is nice. Would recommend.

I went here twice, and both times the service was terrible. The first time, the appetizer and entrees came out at the same time, and the entrees, mostly cheese enchiladas, were congealed and inedible. We were in a hurry to get to a movie so there was little we could do. We had to pay the check and leave and couldn't even take a take-away box because we weren't going home. The second time, I actually had to go to the bar to get our drinks myself because they just sat up there for over 10 minutes. We were never asked if we wanted a second drink. I gave this restaurant two shots, and I am not going back. Both times the restaurant was not that crowded. Very disappointing.
