Cabo Restaurant Reviews

My name is Tim Davidson and we have been “regular” Cabo customers since 2002. We purchased Casa Mario in 2004 and have watched Cabo grow over the years, and seen all the new restaurants come and some go. Here is a collection of our reviews over the years. Some are tried and true and we eat there every time we come. And some you just put in the category of “well, I have tried it and I don’t need to go back.”

The $$ values and what they mean (shown after the restaurant name):

$          Excellent value, very inexpensive for it's category

$$        Great value, not too much money at all

$$$      Little pricey, but on par with what you might pay at home

$$$$    Pricey
