“GREAT B-B-Q”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

How do you know when barbecue good? Is it the meat? The sauce? They way they cook it? California is not really know for BBQ, so you kinda just have to go with word of mouth and see where it leads you You know it's good when everyone tell's you that it's real good, and constantly have a waiting line that wraps around the Restaurant.

Cabo San Licas is really not know for its B-B-Q. But hold all stops, this place has got it down packed. Outstanding baby back ribs!! The calamari on the other hand, terrible...

A live guitarist inside playing romantic hits from the 80's to current.

Overall great experience!

“Burgers and wings - a nice change of pace!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Hit up Desperados after hitting my fill of mexican food. Their wings were good, but have to give props for their burgers and fries. Maybe it's because we were starving for a non-mex meal, but it tasted great to us! Nice little sports bar - playing some games on the TVs.

“Best Nachos Anywhere!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is one really great restaurant. Loved the air-conditioning as it was a muggy night. Great place to watch sports with plenty of tv's playing lots of different games. The food is very good, and the Ultimate Nachos are the best we have found anywhere!

“Fajitas and guacamole please!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We chose this place because we wanted to watch a football game and they had alot of nice large TVs. We were pleasantly surprised that their food was excellent. They made an ample amount of fresh guacamole at our table and their fajitas were great! Portions were large and they are in a nice central location across from Puerto Pariso mall.

“Meh!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

It's a sports bar setting just off the main drag. It was o.k. The chicken fajitas were good but the carne asada was lacking taste .
