Fast Service, Good Food and Large Portions

I had the Chimichangas...3" wide and about a foot long. I had one seasoned ground beef and one chicken. Add Sour Cream and you have enough food for a couple of days. My wife had the Fiesta Bowl. There is some confusion about what we saw on the online menu and what we actually received. I was... read more

I didn't find this to be a very interesting Mexican Restaurant. I got a taco salad which was adequate.

The rough location belies a pleasant little eatery, that features welcoming staff and very good Mexican fare. I had one of the better Quesadillas that I have had in a while...I even had to save some of it for later, it was such a generous portion! The service could have been faster, but then again, its not a fast food... More

Not bad for a quick bite, Mexican food is ok nothing special although the staff is great when we have gone. I guess try it and see what you think.

We arrived on Tuesday which was all you can eat tacos, burritos or enchillados. When they said that they weren't kidding. at first we were served the usual chips and salsa which were home made. Soon our meal was served. We both had the burritos. There were three on the plate which reached from one side of the plate to... More

My wife wanted a Mexican last night so we decided to pay Desperados a visit. The prevalence of sombreros, ponchos and cacti in the decor should have warned us that this was not a sophisticated south of the border eatery. Cliché overload! We really should have turned around at the door and left but boldly & recklessly we ventured in.... More

My wife and I stopped by for a Margarita and a bite to eat. We are vegans so Tex-Mex food generally leaves few options that don't have cheese. Desperados was no different, but they made the Veggie 'Desparito' (I think it was called) vegan by making it with no cheese. The burritos were different, more like a warm wrap than... More

We took a break from wandering North Adams and Williamstown and, at the suggestion of a local, stopped here. We shared a meal and a side of guacamole with chips. Our entree featured shrimp, beef, chicken, veggies and more in a large burrito...it was delicious!

You don't get a second chance at a first impression. When we need to wipe the table and chairs of crumbs from the previous customer...that's bad. We have been to the restaurant for a couple meals prior....has always been good. We did enjoy our dinner meal this last visit. We are not likely to return. The menu has not changed... More

We go to Desperados a couple of times a month and always enjoy it. The food, drinks and service is very good. We enjoy the Buffalo Wings, Taco Salads and the Chimichangas among other things. We've never been disappointed. Highly recommend. However, it is located on Eagle Street, not Ashland. It's usually not hard to park out front but there... More
