    Little warm in there tonight as there is no AC but otherwise great place. Had the BBQ Mahi tacos and couldn't of been more happy with the choice. Jalapeño mashed potatoes were very good as well.

    Salmon tacos and carne asada are to die for! Margaritas are a great addition on a hot day. And don't forget to check the specials

    I just can't!! Every time I come back to visit I absolute have to come. Always go for the tacos even though the whole menu is excellent. The tortillas are just different and better!

    Tukna tacos are awesome. Beware, they are spicy! The spicy guacamole pasta salad for a side is also excellent! Good beer selection and don't forget the awesome margaritas!

    Order the Tavaroo Wahoo tacos with the honey wasabi sauce. Amazing! The rice is cold and pretty tasteless but the tacos won't disappoint. The caborita drink is great too.

    Their tacos are great and the margaritas r good too. You can mix and match tacos which is great, although the sides leave much to be desired

    Beer battered shrimp tacos: noms. I love that they text you when your table is ready... Perfect timing for you to grab a quick beer elsewhere.

    As others have said, their BEST menu items are indeed any of the fish tacos and, in my opinion, a drink called The Perfect Wave. (Note: No advance reservations... Cabo texts when your table is ready.)

    If you order the speciality tacos (as you should), just know you can mix and match them. You don't have to get two of the same kind.

    This place is as overrated as they come. I've had great fish tacos in several different parts of the country and this spot just doesn't cut the mustard. The tacos are good, just not up to the hype.
