Los Cabos brings the Southern California taqueria to Bloomfield


The void left by the demise of Bloomfield's secret taco stand has been filled! Los Cabos, located at 4108 Penn Avenue, specializes in Southern California-style Mexican eats, made by Southern California natives.

Owner Joel Lopez has been mastering the art of the burrito for nearly three decades through his family and years of experience in San Diego Mexican restaurant kitchens. When he came to Pittsburgh three years ago to visit relatives, a conversation about the lack of Mexican restaurants in the city got him thinking, which culminated in a cross-country move and one year's worth of planning with friends and family to open his dream restaurant.

The setup of the 400-square-foot space will be familiar to anyone who's patronized a California taqueria, with a simple open kitchen and counter staffed by friendly, knowledgeable employees, and a casual seat-yourself dining room for about thirty people in the back.  Los Cabos is currently putting the finishing touches on their colorful dining room, which will be complete by their Grand Opening in two to three weeks.

The menu boasts a variety of affordable classic burritos and tacos, as well as experimental models like the "Pittsburgh Burrito", rolled up with Carne Asada and French fries. They also offer a large selection of house specials, soups, salads, frothy Horchata, tortas, quesadillas, desserts, and breakfast options like chorizo con huevos.

Los Cabos is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
