Received a couple of free margarita coupons for Desperados from our resort, so we decided to check it out and we were glad we did. We liked it so much that we had lunch there two days in a row. The chips and salsa are very good as was everything we ordered! I had the spicy baja burger the first... More

My husband and I visited Cabo for the first time in March. We happened in to Desperado's by chance and had a fantastic experience. The wait staff was excellent! Very friendly and engaging. We ordered the fish tacos. I had never had fish tacos before. I'm almost sorry I had them there first because I have ordered them again and... More

Came here based on tripadvisor and other forum reviews. It was definately worth the parking hassle. We ordered 2 Molcajete's, an enchilada plate and a combo plate. We had limeaide to drink. The total bill was $100 including tax. All of the meals were exceptional. The beverages were also very good. There was a full bar, however we didn't order... More

Stopped by Desperado's a few years ago and we weren't impressed - big change, very family/couples friendly. Very nice local entertainment, great salads and Mexican food. Reasonable prices, we will be back!

We were there during the NBA playoffs and asked for a quieter seating. They had room on the balcony which overlooked a typical Mexican street, but it was quieter. They were still quite attentive and provided consistent service. We shared a plate of nachos among 3 people and could not finish it. The sangrias were very good as well.

Laura from Utah, Thanks for the review. I remember seating you up on the terrace over Ninos Heroes, the side street. The NBA fans were happy with the sound, but your group and another group of diners didn't care for the game, so the terrace was the perfect option. The staff at Desperados is very accomodating and we do what... More

From the outside, this looks like just another casual sports bar - ok, from the inside, too, but the kitchen serves up tasty food which amazingly rivals much higher-end restaurants in presentation. The wait staff even prepares some of the dishes table-side which adds to the experience. They're known for their ribs but also try the tortilla soup or fajitas... More

We were in Cabo during the Calgary Flames/Anaheim Ducks series and when our hotel was showing one of the games we found that Desperados was. The hostess was ready with a table for 12 when she saw us get off the taxi bus and the waiters were attentive. We ordered drinks while they were changing channels from soccer (sorry!) and... More
