Checking in with his first guest review is long-time reader Chaz Lambrusco:
Los Cabos has been in Orange for about 15 years now, and was one of the first to fill the niche for Mexican Seafood "Mariscos" in the area.
The menu is moderately priced, and offers a wide range of items from the usual tacos, enchilladas, rellenos and carnitas and they do them all well. BUT - Go for the fish!
Your meal starts out with excellent chips and salsa. I like the darker (mole?) salsa.
I ordered the Filete Tropical, which is a white fish cooked in a mango salsa. It was scrumptious, and cooked just right. I have had the Veracruzana and that is good too. It was served with rice and beans. I would say their rice is below average. Very bland and little flavor. The beans are better than average.
Mrs. Lambrusco really ordered something good. She ordered a "small" bowl Siete Mares soup, which goes for $11.95. It was HUGE, and was heaped with crab legs, scallops, shrimp, white fish, carrots and celery. She held the octopus - she doesn't like it! This soup has got to be the biggest bargain in town. I shudder to think what the large size is like at $16.95 - I think.
She also had a fish taco a la carte, which was very big on a flour tortilla.
The atmosphere is nothing to rave about at Los Cabos. It is in a strip mall, and is one step up from the hole-in-the-wall type places. BUT - go for the fish, not the decor! A soccer game is usually playing on the TV in the dining room on Sundays.
The service was fast and friendly, and to make it even better, I used the $9 off coupon in the Orange County Entertainment Book.
I know Christian will be disappointed, but we did not have dessert.
If I am allowed to use Christian's Speedy G scale, I would give it a 4 out of 5:
Thanks, Chaz. Looking forward to more reviews from you. To our other readers: we are always open to guest review submissions. BTW, I noticed that Elmer Dills likes Los Cabos too.
