Blending coastal Mexican and Tex Mex cuisine, the menu offers a tantalizing mix of flavorful food, killer margaritas and an awesome venue where it is never uncommon to catch the Red Rocker himself jamming out with a live set on stage.

I personally wouldn't go back. After all the high ratings...it really wasn't worth it. We spent $150.00 on literally nothing. The chicken tortilla soup was a 1/5. Probably the weirdest tasting chicken tortilla soup ever. I got my burrito Enchilada style...The enchilada sauce was so dark and it tasted burnt. They also give that sauce with quesadilla and someone else at table said it made their quesadilla taste bad. The chips with queso the queso was grainy like it was powdered cheese mix and we all swore we tasted bleu cheese in the queso mix. Overall I wouldn't come back and for the prices they are charging for their dishes...they need to re work some of those recipes. I've worked in Arizona where you get a lot of Tex-Mex and I can't get over how bad that enchilada sauce was.

Not sure if this was a bad day when we went but we waited a long time for service. Once the young man did come over and take our order he did excellent but we had waited a long time. It was so long other diners even noticed it. Food was good as normal. I would still recommend this place just hope you don’t wait for service as long as we did.

We liked the food and had a very nice server.

However....when we got the bill, this restaurant adds a hidden fee called ‘CNF’ that amounts to like 4.7% of your total. This is IN ADDITION TO your food cost and tax. I went online after to figure out what this was, and learned this is specific to just a couple restaurants in Vegas like Cabo Wabo and amounts to nothing more than a hidden fee. This has apparently ticked off several others, too. I’m sure this was buried on the bottom of the menu somewhere, but I just find this to be a shady business practice. Who would even think a restaurant would do this? It’s like a hidden resort fee for a restaurant. I would not reward this greed with your business.

Average food. In addition to tax, they add a 4.5% Concession and Franchisee Fee (CNF) to every check. What does this buy you? Nothing. Complained to our waitress and she tried to tell us it’s a “resort fee” and that “all the restaurants charge it.” Sneaky and wrong. Majority of places both inside Planet Hollywood and out that don’t charge a CNF. Won’t be going back and would suggest others do the same. And if you’re wondering... they do list at the bottom of the menu that they charge the fee... in super small, legal disclaimer font. Manager should be embarrassed. Do yourself a favor and head to Nacho Daddy instead. Same mall/resort, better food and no shady fees.

Waiter forgot chips and salsa we ordered. Burger was wrong as well. My sister did not like her Taquitos at all and ended up having to get food later at a different restaurant. It was way loud. The waiter did try to make it up to us by giving us the chips and salsa on him and giving a to-go order of chips but overall, it was a disappointment. Disclaimer: We are from Texas and are used to Tex-Mex and this was a far cry from that.

We enjoyed the experience very much, we had a great waiter and the food and drinks were very good, it’s slightly over priced but we used a Groupon and that was a good savings.

Sorry but the portion size was ok but not tasty. Had to drown in salsa to get any flavor. Was Luke warm, ordered papas and chorizo and got red skin potatoes cooked too much and almost no chorizo and what was there was burnt to the bottom. Our bill was $92 before tip for two for lunch. Most Mexican food is much faster, much tastier and half that price. Dining room was very noisy and all the tables were being bunched at lunch. No privaoNdchad to scream over the intercom music.

Great spot for brunch/lunch. Two overly loud tables that eventually left thank goodness! Great pitches of margaritas! - A must when you visit. Our party of 6 enjoyed the burger, cilantro jalapeño chicken (superb), BHLT sandwich, and more.

Chicken Taco’s were very flavourful and my bf enjoyed his enchilada. Margarita was delicious. The guacamole was amazing and would go back just to have some more. Yum. The service by Zane was attentive and his suggestions made the experience at your restaurant pleasant and we would definitely go back. Great experience for myself and my boyfriend. Thank you.

We throughly enjoyed our visit to Cabo Wabo. There were four of us an everything but one dish was outstanding. No fault of the restaurant but my son ordered shrimp tacos expecting whole shrimp but received chopped shrimp meat and he didn't like the consistency. It was kinda weird to wrap your head around it. But that's just a preference. My Torta was the best I have ever had, my Bahia mama was stiff & strong. Will be back.

We went because my husband really wanted to go. Rather than going to the original in Mexico, we decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and visit Vegas for the first time, too. This place is SUPER LOUD. But the food was good, if a little pricey.

The first time we went a year ago, the food and service was amazing. This time though, holy moly, it was terrible. The service was embarrassing. It was so slow. For example, we had to wait 15 minutes just to get drinks. It took us 10 mines to even get water. The server barely checked on us. We even put on the request that we were celebrating a 40th bday and for not congrats. Sometimes the small things make the occasion the best. What a missed opportunity. The only good thing was the atmosphere and food. One words describes everything else - UGH!

Food and drinks were good, a bit pricey , but it is on the strip so you gotta expect that.
Server was friendly and prompt, and made some good recommendations.
Next time, I will order the pitcher of margaritas WITHOUT Ice.....entire pitcher was filled with ice and barely gave us 3 drinks...
Salsa was pureed not chunky, and spicy, but good.
Chips were fresh and hot.
