Love the Cabo Rolls - My 2nd generation Hokie loved the organic, veggie rolls, as well as her dad.. The craft beer selection is always a plus... I still go although she has graduated

This restaurant has been recommended to me several times however the parking is always so bad so I had avoided it. Today I took the opportunity to have a late lunch there and I am so glad I did! The buffalo shrimp tacos were amazing! The tortilla shell is the best I have ever tasted! The jalapeño mashers were a... More

Apparently, when in Blacksburg, this is THE place to go! Everywhere we went, people suggested we try Cabo Fish Taco. My tacos were very good (carnitas tacos). My wife had the fish tacos and very much enjoyed them as well. The atmosphere was fairly basic, the location is very good as it's convenient to campus on Main Street. Our daughter... More

First, let me state that the food is outstanding, innovative, and flavorful. On the food alone, they are a 5. Service was excellent and attentive. So, why the 4? First, the seating. It was a hot day, and the host asked us if we wanted inside or outside. I said inside because I wanted to be in the cooler area.... More

Food is always great - outside tables are great during the fall and you can easily have a nice conversation without feeling overcrowded. parking can be tough. Use the parking garage across the street.

This is a spectacular restaurant! The food is as good as anything in the region. Getting there is not so fun! The parking lot is very small so parking close is for a lucky people. The town has put in new "state-of-the art" parking meters. To pay for them they raised the parking fees to excessive levels! The new meters... More

Sometimes restaurants in college towns fail to meet expectations of quality or cleanliness but Cabo meets the mark. The tacos are fresh and excellent in their hand made tortillas, the staff was really friendly and attentive and the restrooms and dining area were clean and well maintained.
