The food was good. The tortilla chips are made in a shared fryer. Make sure to let them know upfront that you need to avoid gluten. You can order corn tortillas for tacos and ask that they put them on the grill instead of using shared equipment. An added bonus: This is a nut-free restaurant.

Ordered tacos with corn tortilla and they came out on flour. They remade it but it is obvious the cooks are untrained to deal with an actual allergy. Time will tell if I get sick

I got a shrimp veggie bean bowl in a regular bowl rather than their usual tortilla bowl and was fine. It wasn’t very flavorful, but I was happy there were so many veggies. They cook the shrimp and all meat on a different grill than the flour tortillas. Server also said they serve corn tortillas but I didn’t try them.

Cabo is hit or miss with their cross contamination issues. My husband were frequent visitors because we love the food so much. Every once in a while I would get sick. But the past couple visits I’ve been super sick for days after eating at Cabo. No, they are definitely not celiac friendly. I asked the manager if they’d consider GF tofu and he said probably not. Super sad, Cabo is no longer on our radar.

I got super sick multiple times...they are excellent at cross contamination. Celiacs beware.

Tacos can be made on corn tortillas to make them GF. Nachos are from shared fryer so not GF. Was told all meats were safe, but one had a soy glaze, so I avoided that one. Had Mahi-mahi & carne asada tacos they were good. One of sides contains beer but all other sides are GF.

I had the "white corn" tortillas shells for my tacos. They looked like flour tortillas- I asked the waitress to make sure they were corn and she assured me that they were gluten free and they were the new brand they had just started using. Against my better judgement and common sense I ate them. I was very ill for three days. I am a celiac. I was told two days later that a friend of ours experienced the same thing at Cabo and he was very ill. He is a celiac also. I believe Cabo has good intentions but they need to educate their staff and kitchen. A wheat allergy and celiac is not anything to take lightly. Someone who is just on abstaining from gluten is totally different than someone with an autoimmune condition. Sadly I can never eat here again.
