Mexican Restaurant

“Cabo is my favorite restaurant!! I crave it!! It has a great atmosphere, delicious tacos, burritos and the salads. I think I have tried everything on the menu. I usually get one of each of the taco specials with the guacamole pasta salad as my side. My eight-year old loves the soy ginger shrimp tacos with applesauce. They have delicious guacamole and the calamari is some of the best! Their margaritas have spoiled me, I pretty much won’t drink them anywhere else. The Workman is a crowd pleaser but if you are willing to be adventurous try the Angry Amigo. I’m also a newer fan of their tequila mule. They also have a delicious brunch on the weekends!”

Farmers Market
“The Blacksburg Farmers Market is open on Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings. There is typically live music, children and pups running around in the grass, and friendly vendors for treats, drinks, food, toys, and some grocery items. One of our favorite places to walk to and meet up with friends.”
