Cabo Fish Taco

A casual California vibe is how we would describe Cabo Fish Taco. Fish tacos are the signature dishes but don’t miss out on their burritos and varieties of margaritas.
Cuisine Type: Baja-Mexican
Ambience: Casual Dining
I've lived in Charlotte for 9 years and have only visited this place once. Honestly I was not pressed to go back. A friend wanted to grab tacos on a Wednesday night so we went. We arrived around 7:45 and the place was not packed. We decided to sit at the bar. The Tequila selections were skimp (I assume due to the shortage). Brandon worked the bar. He was very pleasant and answered all of my questions. I ordered The Lemon Grilled Shrimp and Soy Ginger Shrimp Tacos. My friend ordered the BBQ Mahi and Soy Ginger Shrimp Taco as well. My side of choice was mashed potatoes. I must say I was very impressed. It was so good! Let's just say I wont wait another 5+ years to visit again. I will be putting this place in my regular rotation.
Love the way Cabo prepares/serves its tortilla shells!! The grilled mahi mahi and the grilled salmon tacos were amazing. My wife REALLY enjoyed the beer-battered tofu taco. There's definitely something for everyone here at Cabo and the service can only be described as "southern style friendly".
Honestly just not my style of Mexican. It's more texmex than Mexican or American style Mexican. The foods okay nothing to brag about portions are okay some of the offerings are overpriced for the portion. This time we got the salmon and shrimp and they were better than other dishes I've tried in the past. The table we got sat at wasn't clean. Our waiter didn't really check on us so I didn't even get a water refill.
I always stop by Cabo Fish Taco when visiting or passing NC. Its just that good. Affordable, delicious and most importantly their vibes are just a killer. They offer good variety of tacos with unique flavors. Love their drinks, too, it complements the food flawlessly.
We stopped in on our way to Winston-Salem and had a pleasant experience. This is the flagship restaurant in NoDa. We were not super excited with the food we ordered but we were not disappointed either. We ordered the salsa trio and I was expecting to see chunky salsas with pineapple and mango chunks or tomatillo tomato bits but it was pured. The roasted red tomato salsa tasted like marinara. The green tomatillo salsa was ok. We added hot sauce to each. We also ordered and shared a steak fajita. The steak was cut into tiny bird size pieces like it belonged in a burrito or taco, and the peppers and onions were sparse. We liked the tortillas but were disappointed in the lack of steak and fresh veggies. Overall I would go back and perhaps try one of the fish specialties. Service was good and the IPA was excellent.
