“THIS IS A CABO MUST EAT AT RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

Originally what brought me to Desperados was the picture(here on TA)of the Ultimate Nachos. Five of us went for dinner, we ordered the Ultimate Nachos and also had 2 orders of Coconut Shrimp and an order of Guacamole and Chips made tableside and custom to our liking. The food was outstanding and the staff was super helpful and friendly. We were there on a tuesday night and there was live music, one guy on guitar(not a vendor) he was so good! For dessert we had 2 orders of Banana's Foster also made tableside,YUM!!

This is one of those restaurants you will eat at everytime you're in Cabo.

Another reason to eat here is its AIR CONDITIONED.

“Wonderful Dinner at Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

Had a wonderful meal here at Desperados. The Sea Bass was delicious. My boyfriend had the whole rack of ribs and could not even finish them and he is a rib eater. The atmosphere was great and the musician was very talented. I recommend dining here when you are in Cabo.

“Wonderful Fajitas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2009

Read the reviews and went there last night. Had the appetizer of skewered meat & fish - wonderful - followed by the excellent fajitas. Service and prices could not be beat. They had a wonderful guitarist strumming away as we ate. The air conditioning was a welcome relief having walked from the Rosa. Would definitely go back again. Viva Deperados!

“Nice Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2009

I live in Cabo and had passed by Desperado's many times, but had never ventured in...

Husband and I decided to try it out last week, and it was great!

We aren't huge eaters, so we just shared the "supreme" fajitas, comes with beef, chicken, shrimp, and extra veggies (zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms). They were awesome.

Atmosphere was great, server was knowledgeable and friendly and the food was definitely better than a lot I've had in Cabo.
