Description: CLOSED MONDAYS... SUNDAYS WE SERVE BRUNCH FROM 9 AM. TO 2 PM DINNER AT 4 PM 9:30PM . Check out our newly added Patio!! We have been here for 29 years. If you are expecting a flashy new restaurant with all new furniture and bathrooms the size of living rooms we may not be your spot. But if good, fresh, reasonably priced food is what you are after we may just be it!. The center has been here a lot longer, being built about 1960. We are locally owned and one of the few, if not the only restaurant, in town & maybe anywhere, that provides health care for our employees. We have a diversified menu, offering vegetarian dishes, Our own idea of Mexican Food (No Lard in our beans) when possible, locally caught fish and shrimp, sandwiches, salads & upscale dinner specials at down home prices. We run our 200+ seat operation with one household double door freezer. We have the best margaritas (try our Shipwreck...) hand cut fries (voted #1 by the viewers of WCTV) and some say the best Burger for the buck in Tallahassee. We would like to mention that we have gluten free tortillas, and if wine is your thing, Bring in what you really would like to have and for nominal $6 bucks we will cork it. Please be aware that we get busy and when we do, it can get loud. If for any reason you aren't happy with either the service or the food please tell us. We are human, we make mistakes, and occasionally it happens. Thanks for taking the time to read this & thanks for supporting locally owned establishments. Mike Ferrara & Bobby Staerker.

The Tuna tacos are amazing. You get a lot of fresh tuna for $12, and the sauce is fantastic. The crab cakes are good, but they are better on the sandwich than by themselves.

All I can say is to try it. Very good food with outstanding service. It has an excellent atmosphere with huge character. The surf boards hanging from the ceiling with their stories gets an A+.

We went to Cabos the other night and had a great experience. I had a simple taco salad that was quite tasty with a hint of cilantro and cilantro always makes me happy:) My husband had the fish tostada which he gets there often and loved it too. The service is always good and of course talking to owner Mike is a constant pleasure. Thank you, Cabos, for a healthy, pleasant evening.

We went here based on other reviews on TA. We were not dissapointed. The place is small islandy-surfy-themed restaurant with fast, friendly service. We were served by a young lady named Mallory, and she was very good at her job. She always checked on us and was very thorough in her recommendations and descriptions. She was also very sweet. The food was very good, as were the Bloody Marys! I had The Grouper Tostada and my girlfriend had a Scallop, Shrimp Wrap. Both were very good. I wanted to try more things but given the portion sizes
it wouldve been inpossible on a normal stomach! We were quite pleased and will definately go back next tim we are in Tally! Very good food, very good service and very friendly people.

I have lived in Tallahassee for years and am a regular at Cabo's. They have the best hamburger in town and are a local institution. My friends and I meet here for lunch at least once each month. The food is great, the staff is attentive, and the prices are very reasonable.

I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
