“acceptable cantina food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Desperados serves OK Mexican food in a nice enough setting and for added atmosphere has a good musician playing. Chile rellenos was boring and bland but tortilla soup was excellent. But there are many more interesting Mexican places in Cabo

“Guacamole table side!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

This place is great. Very good food in large portions. Fun live music and very attentive service. The guacamole prepared table side is really good - and you can have them make it as spicy as you want it. Fish tacos and beef fajitas were both flavored perfectly and the wine list seemed better than most I have seen in Mexico. Affordable and yummy. I recommend it, and may even go back a second time this week!

“Good authentic Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Really liked the food as it was to our taste. Mexican food served in a restaurant. Can choose to sit in the balcony, although it does get cold in the evenings & they have blankets on the chairs. Service was really good & fast. Could view the Eagles Group albums.

“Pretty good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went at lunchtime and were the only diners. Burger was good, except for the very soggy onion rings. Beef fajitas were good, although the peppers and onions were overcooked for my taste. The tortilla soup was great! The service was a little slow. Atmosphere at night is probably much more funky than in the cold light of day.
