Located on the road between Wiliiamstown and North Adams, it doesn't look like much in the strip mall, but it is worth it. We had chicken and mushroom enchiladas with rice and beans. We had pulled pork tacos which needed a little more flavor.

I only gave Desperados a 4 because of the price... $14 for a quesadilla is a bit much, in my opinion. I am from Florida and mexican food is inexpensive. However, the service was fantastic and the food was absolutely delicious and very fresh. Nice...More

I visited this restaurant with a few companions. I had some very nice salsa and then I had some shrimp enchiladas. The service was very good and I had some very good lemonade and very good Mexican dessert.

Good prices. Large portions. I wouldn't say this is real Mexican food, more like Americanized. But stuff very good. Their salsa was too chunky, hard to get on the chips.

I can't say enough about the food, so I won't say anymore, just go there and you'll leave happy and full! Don't forget to get a Margarita with your dinner.

First, the Sangria was very good, not watered down. The staff was pleasant. The drunken shrimps were delicious and big. The shrimp and crab enchiladas were equally good. We left the place feeling good. The prices were reasonable.

I swear I could live off of Mexican food! I just love Desperados. They have some great choices and some good Margaritas! One thing I love about them is that they offer a free meal for your birthday. I believe up to $15 or so....More
