The nachos at this place are for 2-3 people! HUGE and YUMMY! I chose to go there for my birthday lunch with my family. My husband and I have also gone there alone. The service is great! On football days, I've seen waiters bring a laptop to a table so the customers could watch a game that's not being shown on one of the many TV's in the place.

AmandaKarevan, Thanks for taking the time to write a review of Desperados. Have we met? If not, come by the restaurant next time your passing by and introduce yourself. Desperados has the biggest nachos in Cabo, with everything on them, they weigh 1.5 kg! You can always request a half order if that's to much for you. We have 10 TV's throughout the restaurant, 7 downstairs and 3 upstairs, we get many special requests for sports and actually have two laptops we can bring to tables to fullfill those requests!

I'll see you soon, I look forward to putting a face to your name!

The staff was VERY accommodating! Hooked up their computer to the big screen so we could watch The Anaheim Ducks win in a thrilling hockey game! Drinks were great and service was awesome!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, the tripadvisor travel community appreciates it.

Desperados Restaurant & Cantina is a great place to go for a casual lunch or dinner out. We offer compeitive prices compared with similar restaurants and take great pride in the flavor and presentation of our food. Our Fajitas are one of Desperados specialties. You have your choice of vegi, chicken, steak, shrimp, or a mix. They are served with pico de gallo, guacamole, refried black bleans, rice, and warm flour or corn tortillas. The fajitas are served on a sizzling platter and then your server will pour a shot of tequila over them tableside. They are the best looking and tasting fajitas in Cabo San Lucas! Next time try our fall off the bone BBQ Pork Ribs or Desperados Molcajete.

See you soon!

We dined here twice during our week stay in Cabo. What a find. The only disappointment was not getting to try the nachos because we were so full! I had the fajitas which were amazing and my husband had the mixed bbq which was incredible. The staff is friendly and attentive and we made another trip back just so I could have the BBQ too!

Desperado's made me love guacamole! I usually hate guacamole but for some reason I absolutely loved it here. Desperado's is good overall. At times communication with some of the servers is difficult as far as requesting some things that we wanted such as corn tortillas rather than flour but this was no big deal because someone else would step in right away and help. The fajitas are absolutely delicious. The addition of the tequila gives the fajitas an extra kick in the flavor department; they're the best fajitas I have had, hands down.
Try the nachos though! They're huge and also very very good. The people that I went to the restaurant with also absolutely love the fried ice cream.
Even though this is a Tex Mex style restaurant, you can't go wrong with the food!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review so full of compliments on our food. Desperados prepares the guacamole tableside in a traditional volcanic stone bowl, so you get it made to your specifications every time. We also prepare the shrimp or fish ceviche tableside as well and mix it all up by shaking it in a martini shaker. Our fajitas (Vegigi, Chicken, Steak, Shrimp, and Combo) are served on a sizzling platter with the option of the addittion of a shot of tequilla poured over the top tableside. The nachos are pretty big, 1.5 kgs with everything on them to be exact. If you can eat them all by yourself and drink our Liter size Margarita within 20 min, they are free! As for the communication, Desperados is in Mexico and Spanish is the first language here. If you ever have communication issues I am there 6 nights a week and am always happy to help.
