So much better than the traditional Mexican restaurant. Best shrimp tacos I've had. Service good, primetime Friday evening, of course it's going to be a little busy, but not a long wait for food.

Best to visit when school is out. Worth the stop for something different than the usual local fare. However, the quality of the food seems to vary from visit-to-visit. That may be because many of our stops have been when most of the students are gone and the best cooks and managers may be taking a break, also. Warning: The... More

As a Tech alum, I looked forward to being in Blacksburg for a night this summer and knew I would be heading to Cabo to relive some of my favorite dinners in college. The food never disappoints, margarita was okay, service was lacking. I may be spoiled by the vibe in the Charlotte location since I've been away from a... More

This is a great place for tacos. You can eat outside or inside. The building is a very old refurbished building in downtown Blacksburg. across from the Tech Bookstore. The food is fresh, and the inside atmosphere is good -- but can get a bit loud, but eating outside is nice. It is a big college student hangout. Lots of... More

Cabo Fish Taco is a regular stop when in Blacksburg. We've never had a bad meal there. Mama loves the fish tacos and I had the steak tacos. The salsa that comes with the complimentary chips is quite tasty, and the make a mean margarita. The place brings back so many memories. When I was a student there in the... More

I go here for the fish tacos. They are GREAT! I am always careful to go when sitting outside is an option. They clean with strong bleach, and the smell is overwhelming if they have just done this.

Always a favorite with our family. The food is consistently good. My son usually requests Cabo whenever we visit him at Tech. If you like Mexican food and you like seafood you can't go wrong with this choice. Great variety on the menu. It is not a large place but there is outdoor seating as well. Go early as there... More

In a college town with very little outdoor dinning the patio at Cabo is one the best. The food at Cabo never disappoints and is consistent. The specialty taco is always unique and fun. Overall Cabo is a great place to go for good food and a good time.
