I had frequented this restaurant for years and had stopped going. When the new owner took over I gave it a try and I am pleased that it is much, much better. Overdue renovations, some new decor, a good cleaning, and better service and food will give this a much needed new life. I have been there three times in... More

The food was disappointing and it looked so promising from the menu. Started with coconut shrimp. Not impressed. Citrus Pollo - couldn't taste the chicken due to it being smothered in sauce that appeared to be predominately cheese. Broccoli Grande - the broccoli had been overcooked and as a result was tasteless. And again, so much cheese!! Overall, not terrible,... More

Desperados is just around the corner from me and I always thought it was nice to support a local business. The staff is nice and the food ok. Tonight I wasn't happy with my meal so I asked to speak to the owner/cook. Wow! I love that we have choices in this great country. I'll take my business somewhere else... More

We spend a lot of time at the Williamstown Theater Festival and are always looking for different places to eat on our way there. Tried this place a couple of weeks ago as Mexican food is one of our favorites. My wife had the steak fajitas which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had the shrimp and crabmeat burritos and wow....really delicious.... More

Had dinner here and the food we got was pretty good and reasonably priced. The margaritas were also good and reasonably priced, and they were bigger than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise. Service was ok. Place wasn't very crowded when we went. There is a bar, with all of one TV.

We were staying across the street from Desperados so it was an easy walk to get there. The first night we tried to eat there, the place was packed and the greeter informed us before we sat down that there would be about a 45 minute wait for our meals so we didn't stay. We came back the second night... More
