We enjoy hanging out at Desperados, especially during football games. The sofas upstairs are comfortable with flat screen tvs. Tino is an amazing server, making tableside guacamole and fried ice cream. Thanks Tino!

Desperados was one of the only places to play certain Men's World Cup games this summer. They have AC, WiFi, and a great bar to sit and eat at, while watching sports. There are also a variety of seating options for larger groups. The service is friendly and the vibe is casual. The menu includes delicious burgers and fries, and... More

Was there in September and one of the locals told us about this place. Wanted to watch some NFL,they had the games on. Food was really good. Not too pricey. Will be there watching the Super Bowl 50.

When we vacation in Cabo san Lucas we always stop at Desperados. Tonight our waiter, Victor, went above and beyond to give us great service. We enjoy eating the ultimate nachos while watching the football game.

Desperados Restaurant & Cantina appreciates our return customers, without you we couldn’t be us. Desperados Fall Off The Bone BBQ Pork Ribs and our Sizzling Fajitas served on a hot plate with a shot of tequila are two of our specialties.
