A restaurant that's been a longtime favorite in NoDa's business district is planning to add a new location in Charlotte this fall.

Cabo Fish Taco, the seafood spot with the Baja/California vibe, announced Thursday that it will open a new location in Ballantyne, at 11625 N. Community House Road, in front of the Brigham Building. That's next to a new location of Potbelly Sandwich Shop.

Cabo also has a location in Blacksburg, Va., and is opening a fourth location in Roanoke, Va.

Cabo was founded in NoDa by Rob Crenshaw and Gary Walker, who both grew up surfing in Virginia Beach, and Maeghan Crenshaw. With a Baja surfer theme, it was opened in 2001 when NoDa's small business district was first taking off as an arts district and when fish tacos were first spreading east from the Pacific coast.

It quickly found a following and long lines before NoDa became known as a restaurant destination area in Charlotte.
