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.

Whenever my friends in town cannot decide where to go I always suggest Cabos because they have something for everyone. Whether you want a salad, burger, burrito, sandwich... you name it and they have it! also, they are very good about offering vegetarian choices as well. Their black bean burger is one of the best in the city. I have never been disappointed in a meal from Cabos, even though sometimes their service is so so. Once a waitress brought me a real burger instead of a black bean burger which is a big mistake, but took care of it right away. Overall, a great landmark restaurant in Tallahassee!

If you want a cool casual meal this is the place. Service is great. Everything is good. If they have it in the kitchen they can put it together the way you want it. Don't go if you are in a hurry. It's not that the service is slow, in fact, anything but. It would just be a shame not to take advantage of the laid back atmosphere. Definitely a jewel in the rough.

We stopped at Cabo's for a quick lunch while shopping between Christmas and New Years. My husband's brother was with us, visiting from California. We had the tacos, with chicken and beef, which are better than at most of the Mexican restaurants in the area. The staff was friendly and attentive.

Our whole family loves Cabos. Whenever we're in town it's the restaurant we can all agree on and most of the time we plan to go to Cabos around our other stops. The variety is wonderful, from tacos, burgers, sandwiches, and seafood; we've never had a bad meal. It can get busy at times, but that's because it's so good. Don't forget to take a peek at the fish tank. Grab a margarita and enjoy!

Cabo's has been more than just my favorite restaurant for more than 15 years it has become a family tradition to celebrate birthdays and such at this fantastic no-frills-just-amazing-food local spot. Vegan friendly, great varied menu for every taste. Scott is the best waiter, but we have had treat service from everyone. Clean, fast, fun decor. Mike and the folks at Cabo's will do you right! My husband says they have the best wings in town hands-down.
