I'm not too attracted to Mexican cuisine, however my Friends wanted to dine at this restaurant. All of us ordered drinks and were greeted by a very nice Waitress who was also kind enough to accommodate my request for a shrimp quesadilla as I need to keep meal more plain than their menu offered. That's what made eating at Desperados... More

We stopped in here last week but weren't sure it was opened. the location is in a a shopping area and a bit hard to find at first. Service was good. Made a recommendation to my daughter to come later in the week because it was family friendly

We were in town on business and this was our annual trip to Desperados. We love it every time. My burrito was perfect. So were the draft beer and warm chips and salsa.

Food was delicious, atmosphere was crowded /tight.. The first server was awful from seating us to the end, like she'd started recently, wanted to go home and was honoring us with her attention but the other servers were spectacular! They were attentive, nice and professional. So it was a crap shoot. The drinks are generous and delicious. 2 out of... More

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.
