Bored and have nothing to do? Head on over to Johnny Cabos’s, a casual restaurant/bar located on Sugartown Road. This Tex-Mex themed eatery has a relaxed atmosphere, with dim lighting, smoking and non-smoking sections, two floors, and a fully-stocked bar. It also offers different kinds of foods for every type of person.

Some of the popular appetizers are the $5.95 Cabo’s Chips/Queso Cheese Basket, and the $7.95 Nachos Grande plate, nacho chips smothered in cheeses, lettuce, and peppers. The menu offers light dishes, like soups and salads, including a spicy Caesar salad. There are different sandwiches and burgers, which range in price from $7.95-8.95. Well-liked dinner dishes are the $14.95 Honey-Dipped Fried Chicken and the $10.95 Coca-Cola Baby Back Ribs.

All ages will enjoy the entertainment and special events this restaurant offers. There are pool tables and family-themed games on the second floor, along with a dance floor and jukebox downstairs. Televisions surround the bar for those who want to watch a game or a particular show.

Each day of the week is aimed towards different types of people. Sundays are “NFL Game Day,” which include drink specials with the football game playing on the restaurant’s televisions. Thursday night is “Ladies Night,” and karaoke is one of the main attractions.

The nights that could apply to Cabrini students are Wednesday nights. Wednesday night is designated “College Night,” often with an open dance floor and a DJ spinning tunes. On this night, the bar offers many drink specials for of-age college students. “If patrons under the age of 21 want to come inside, they will be let in but not allowed to drink,” Bob Hanna, general manager of Johnny Cabo’s, said. “We offer mixers and private events for colleges. We’re also having a Halloween party, with cash prizes and a $25 open bar,” Hanna said.

Johnny Cabo’s appears to be quite popular with area college students. “It’s a fun atmosphere. No cover is nice and the drinks are good. They have awesome specials, and beer pong,” senior Maria Moglioni, a special education/elementary education major, said.

So with nothing to do on one of those boring nights on campus, check out Johnny Cabo’s with a bunch of friends. It’ll be an experience to remember.
