We happened to show up on a Tuesday after our visit to MOCA - so I got all of the shrimp tacos I could eat. I only made it through 4 - but they were great. I saved the salsa and guacamole to help it. My better half had shrimp and crab enchilada and loved it. Oh and the overhead... More

It's so good we dine at Desperadoes at least two or three times a month. (And that's a lot for any ethnic restaurant.) Service always friendly and attentive and the enchiladas are outstanding -- especially on Tuesdays when they are on an "all you can eat" special.

My visit here was for a take out order of chile . The place looked clean . The take out was slow . The so called chile seemed like meat sauce for hot dogs . The Desperados in North Adams was all around better to my liking .

We were there on a Tuesday. All you can eat burritos or enchiladas but we couldn't finish even two. We also had 15% off with room keys. Not fancy but good food. GREAT service and a good margarita

Fresh food, large portions, different options. Great margaritas. Would call ahead for reservations. Sauces are a bit different than usual with mole and fresh chips and salsa.

We thought this place was pretty decent. It may seem a little pricey, but the portions are huge! Margaritas weren't all that great, but they did let us have a little sample before deciding to order beer. Staff was attentive even though they were busy.

We dined last night at this restaurant. While yes, the chips and salsa came out promptly, our food did not. And when the food did arrive, it was very disappointing. I'm from California, where the Mexican food is good and authentic. This is not Mexican food, but someone that has no idea how to prepare Mexican food making an effort.... More

My family of four ate here and spent over $60 for our meal. Not what I expect when eating at a Mexican restaurant/bar. I would not complain if the food was even slightly good. I was so disappointed by our food. My taco salad came in one of those stale, deep-fried dough bowls. The chicken was dry -- no sauce... More

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
