    We enjoyed the food. Service was a bit slow, however, when manager saw us sitting with our menus he came over to take the order. Recorded music was too loud and too pounding for our tastes. Great location, but parking can be a hassle. Shopping center has valet parking for $5. This was our second visit to Cabo and we will go again.

    We always love the food here - great variety, moderate prices and always delicious! We had an awesome waitress who made the night even better! There's a nice outside eating area with fans to cool, and the bar is open to outside as well. Once it gets a bit cooler, we love eating outside, but inside isn't too noisy like some restaruants. This is our "go to" restaurant after Sunday golf...and it NEVER disappoints!

    Have been going there once a week for about 2 months. Always fun. Always good. Whether it's just my wife and I or the kids join in, we. Love it. Shrimp tacos or any kind of fajita. Love the queso fun dido with chorizo. Make sure to get dessert. 3 favorites are molten chocolate, fried ice cream and the bread pudding. Does what this type of place should do!

    This place was nice, only issue they stopped the LIVE DJ :-( I planned a birthday party for my girlfriend there, spoke to the staff a head of time so that I could set up, but they didn't have my table ready and would not reserve it, ROCCOS TACOS will reserve your spot and let you set up. Spoke to management about it and they did nothing to help the situation, so don't plan on an event at this location. Can't speak for all Cabo Flats, but the one in Delray was an issue, they need to bring the DJ back do specials and promote to the younger crouds.

    We took friends there on Saturday night. Just a fun place to be. The food is very good. The chorizo is great. I had it in every course but dessert. Speaking of dessert try their special fried ice cream with cap 'n' crunch. Among others, just a fun good place with good value.

    The greeter when we checked in with our res was great. She greeted us by name and accommodated our switch to an outdoor from an indoor table, which we requested because of the noise inside. Salsa and chips were great, our enter tacos less so. When we asked for more chips, we got chips only, no salsa. We had expected both, as is customary at other Mexican restaurants. For $9 my Chardonnay was pretty bad. Ditto for my wife's Malbec. Place just didn't seem special.

    It isn't often you stumble into your new #1 restaurant, but I was fortunate enough to have this happen to me as I found Cabo Flats! It was love at first sight. The place is incredibly decorated. Equally incredible was the food. Our server was explaining to the table that all food was made from scratch and that we had to try the Sangria, or a specialty Margarita. We took her advice and had one of each. The absolute best Sangria ever! When the food came out we were blown away! The fajita's were full of flavor, and the burrito was outstanding. From the atmosphere, to the service, and food Cabo Flats wowed me! Not to mention 1/2 priced drinks Wed, and Sunday after 9pm the server told us about. All-U-Can eat Taco Tuesday's! I may just camp here

    The service was bad the hostess sat us down and than no one came over until the manager notice we didnt have anything. The taco I ordered was ice cold. The waiter told us the food is made fresh and it would take awhile to get. It sure did take awhile to get the food and than it was cold i sent it back. Yes it came back hot but the skirt steak was tuff. Dont waste you money. Oh I do have a nice thing to say the guacamole was good

    We visit Cabo Flats aboput once every other week. It is a fun place with a varied menu to satisfy many tastes. I chose this place for my Father's Day dinner as it is most enjoyable - food and atmosphere; service is unparalleled in SoFL. Unfortunately, parking is a disaster, especially for handicap access.

    We arrive during a rainstorm so ate inside. We asked to be moved to a booth and were accommodated. It was difficult for one member in the party to read the menu at the table so the booth provided ample light. Our server was friendly, explained some of the food choices and continued to fill water glasses. The food itself was good and predictable. No one had any complaints and one person really enjoyed the mole sauce offered at this restaurant. We will return.

    Above average Tex/Mex. More interesting combinations than most places. Homemade guacamole was good but not as good as Rocco's. The chips were excellent. This is a perfect place to grab a bite before the movies. Great outside seating if it is not too hot.

    Reservation
    Dined on 6/7/2014
    We had a 6:30pm reservation for 6 people and a baby. When we got there (on time) our table was given to someone else and they didn't have one for us. We ended up having to leave our party because we didn't know how long it would take and having a 10 month old with us was the main reason for making the reservation in the first place. You could tell the hostess stand was overwhelmed and stressed out. The line to put your name on the list was out the door. The host blamed the manager for booking a large party for our wait. We ended up leaving and the rest of our party was given a table 30 minutes later. The food was good but service was rushed. The entrees were brought out with the guacamole appetizer.

    We went Mother's Day sitting first outside however the waitress was nice enough to tell us that there were flies. Boy were there. Since we didn't want to be attacked by them we ate inside. I had the Cobb salad which had dry chicken and cheese globbed in it. The chicken was so dry I could not eat it even after taking off the yucky cheese. My friend had the fajita which she couldn't eat cause it was salty and again chicken awful. Our husbands had the tacos which were just ok. The guacamole was really good with warm chips however the salsa tasted like tomato sauce. Our waitress was very nice and that's all I can say. Why is this place packed? No idea. Maybe cause it's family friendly?

    Restaurant had terrible service . Floor covered in greasy substance throughout . It was a bday celebration turned horrible. My sister slipped and fell coming out of the bathroom and hit her head, arm, elbow and knees. Had to be rushed by ambulance to hospital on back board , neck brace and stretcher. Restaurant staff so un attentive. Caught one employee laughing and cackling over her fall. Now I know the restaurant will be reported as my other sisters neighbor also fell at same restaurant a few months ago.

    This is the type of place, in any other locale, that would be overrun by youngsters - 20's & 30's-somethings - enjoying the loud noise and frenetic pace. But, here in SoFL, the greater number of seats were filled by more mature - seniors, if I may - enjoying the ambience and the outstanding service. The food is perfectly prepared and presented. Dinner on the day of Cinco de Mayo was very enjoyable for the four of us - all seniors!

    Being Cinco de Mayo weekend and seeing the newspaper ad for mariachi band, we thought we would try out this new restaurant. I was not happy when I tried calling the restaurant for information but got an automated answering service. The restaurant didn't pick up or maybe that's how you operate; I couldn't understand how, at 5:00 o'clock, nobody picked up the house phone. My next thought was to go online and fortunately I was able to follow the links and make a reservation online. From there on, everything went like clockwork. The hostess had us in the computer and we were seated promptly. Amber was our waitperson and she fits the description for "a perfect employee". Actually, I wrote up a review while still in the restaurant. GREAT!

    Ate here for the first time as we usually eat at another restaurant in the plaza. Was very pleasantly surprized!. Great, fun drinks list, lots of entree choices. Everyone really enjoyed their food. We sat outside, great for people watching. Indoors is a bit too loud. Waiter was very attentive and did NOT chase us or rush us in any way even though the reservations were packed. We sat for almost 2.5 hours!

    Waiters had their faces painted, Great for the kids. Way too many screaming little children whose parents didn't know how or were unable to control them. Food was good, but came minutes after ordering...felt rushed. Waiters didn't know how to adjust the TVs for the sports games. Service was a little sporadic. Was Ok, but could be much better if they didn't bring out the entrees just as your are starting to eat your salsa, guacamole, and chips. I asked the waitress if there were beans in my meal. She said No and yet mixed in oneof the items were beans which I can't stand. Restaurant has potential
