Stopped in for lunch, slow service as we were the only seven in the restaraunt. Meal was good, found it wasnt the best bargain in Cabo.

What a great experience ! This was our third trip to Cabo and we decided to finally give this place a try. We went as a party of 8 and everyone was over the top with their meal. My wife and I shared the coconut shrimp appetizer to start. These critters are so big, you almost need a knife and fork to eat them. We shared the pound & a half of ribs for main course and we were delighted with how moist and tender they were and the sauce was excellent too. Finally, we also shared the deep fried ice cream for dessert and it was the icing on the cake. ( I know, you're probably think we're eighty years old because we share all our meals, but these servings were so generous, we barely finished )

While we were finishing up, a guitar player started playing the classic Eagles and Beatles etc. It just couldn't have been any better.

Sorry we waited so long to try it and definately going back before we go home. This place was a big hit for us and I can't figure out why it isn't rated in the top 3 restaurants in Cabo.

All around an excellent experience.

We all had the ribs which were so delicious.. we literally ate until we couldn't move. It's their own recipe and the sauce is AMAZING!
The service was the best we'd had on the entire trip; our server would replace napkins without asking, always checking in on us - it was fabulous! We finished off with fried icecream which was also delicious!

At the end of our dinner, the chef came out to meet with us and we just had to commend him on the excellent meal we'd had.

We will definitely be back again!

Cheers from Canada!

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

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!
