We are frequent visitor to this establishment; as it is within 30 minute drive from the house, typically we have to drive 10 miles just to get the basics at the grocery. We have never been disappointed in our meal and our 8 year olds loves the food too! She also loves that there are trivia boxes at each table,... More

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

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 charged an extra... More

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.

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!
