There’s nothing like some good food, especially when it’s from a killer Mexican restaurant in Springfield, Mo. And if you haven’t noticed, there is a new little spot gracing us with their presence, and that place is Los Cabos Mexican Grill and Cantina.
Headquartered in Jenks, Oklahoma, this little spot boasts two patios, two private rooms and some of the most generously-poured margaritas I’ve had in a minute. I sat down with the lovely Jennifer Huber, business liason and long-time pal, who heads up catering for this fine establishment, and picked her brain on their behind-the-scenes operations.
This eatery opened in Springfield in 2018 but has five other restaurants around the Midwest. One of the benefits of Los Cabos is all of the ingredients are fresh and the food is made daily – no pre-made burritos here. If that isn’t enough, I highly recommend the deep-fried avocado. I’ve never had anything quite like it. A typical day starts at 7am for the chefs: they are in the back of the restaurant at this time peeling avocados before the lunch and dinner rush.
Signature Food from Los Cabos in Springfield, Mo.
Their other signature foods include the pollo con chorizo, avocado tacos, and surprisingly their ribs. One wouldn’t typically think a Mexican restaurant has award-winning ribs, but this place does! In fact, the peeps from KTTS love their ribs, including Beau from Beau and Nancy.
Award-Winning Margaritas in Springfield, Mo.
Aside from their uh-mazing food, they also serve award-winning margaritas. They have a strawberry rumrita which is awesome, a drink I have yet to try called “the horny toad” and also their salsa hornitos. If you are looking for a more traditional top-shelf margarita, the Cabo Bueno has been winning awards since 2013.
Catering in Springfield, Mo.
They recently started catering lunches and dinners for local businesses and parties of between 8 and 500 people. We would know – Jennifer has been kind enough to provide catering for the We&Company business mixers! While this is a Mexican restaurant, their catering isn’t simply Mexican fare – they do almost everything else as well. Everything from set up, to tear down, and even staff can be provided for all your event needs. And if you are especially lucky, Jennifer will show up herself – she is a good time!
Los Cabos Mexican Restaurant Discounts in Springfield, Mo.
Last, but certainly not least, Los Cabos Mexican Restaurant also gives discounts to certain groups of people. For example, veterans receive 10% off their bill, and Mercy and Cox employees also enjoy 10% off their tab. Policemen and firemen who are in uniform get to enjoy 50% off their tab. I do love a man (or woman) in uniform *swoon*
Happy Hour at Los Cabos Mexican Restaurant in Springfield Mo.
While every hour is a happy hour here, they do have drink and food specials from between 3pm and 6pm including $5 margaritas and fare from between $5 and $6. Their skinny margarita is my fav – feel free to buy me a drink!
Located at 4109 S. National Ave. in Springfield, Mo., be sure to check them out – they are open seven days a week from 11:00am onwards. I am literally there at least once a week. It’s hard to beat their specials and, let’s be honest, it feels like you are on holiday every time you walk in.
