Desperados is one of the BEST restaurants in all of Cabo San Lucas and is close to all the hottest bars and nightclubs in town. Whatever you do, be sure and start with the guacamole that is prepared fresh at your table. All the steak and seafood dinners are amazing. We've had the combination plate with coconut shrimp, jumbo shrinp, nachos, guacamole. etc., on several occasions and it's always been delicious. We've even had the seafood combination delivered to our business in Cabo and it always arrived promptly. I highly recommend you have dinner at Desperados at least one night of your vacation in Cabo.

We love this restaurant. It's clean, it's very easy to find and the staff there is outstanding. If you like/love guac, be sure to order the made to order. They bring the entire set up right to your table and it is delicious. Almost worth the trip just for that. Nice music in the background and just overall a very nice experience. We always eat here when we are in Cabo.

Unfortunately my wife, two daughters and I dined here only once during our week stay. At least a couple of times eating at other places, half way through our meal we’d all look at each other and say, “We should have gone to Desperados!” The food here is outstanding and the wait staff very attentive and friendly. The interior and décor is very well done in kind of a combination comfortable restaurant/sports bar theme. The menu selection is almost overwhelming. Although Mexican dishes seem to be their specialty, there’s also fish, steak, ribs, chicken and with so many choices there is something for everyone. We started with the guacamole and chips which is custom made at the table with your selection of fresh ingredients… the best we had in Cabo (sorry El Farallon). The enchilada, burrito and fajita entrées were all excellent. We noticed the table next to us ordered the “Ultimate Nachos” and when the waiter brought it out to the table, I thought it they were kidding the plate was so big! To top off our terrific dinner we had the Bananas Foster which they prepared flambé tableside…one word, OUTSTANDING!! As now one of our favorite Cabo restaurants, I highly recommend Desperados and next time in Cabo, we’ll be sure visit more than just once.

What can I say that others have not already said. We spent the last 2 weeks of May in Cabo. This was our dinner choice on the first night of our stay and the last night of our stay. In addition to one other visit, we after there 3 times in 12 dinners. It would have been more but we had plans 4 other nights. The wait staff (as well as the manager, Tyler) is absolutely the best in Cabo. We have had their appetizers, entrees and dessert (bananas foster) with no disappointments or complaints. Everything was great. My only complaint is if you order the ultimate nachos, you better plan on at least 4 people...too much food for two people if that could be considered a complaint. Will definitely be back to eat every year.

Had dinner here one night with our group of 8 and was not disappointed. The portions are huge, the food is great and the staff are very fun and acommodating. Had the super nachos, chicken burrito, taco salad, fajitas, and great margaritas. They had live music (singer that played a guitar) which was very nice. You have to eat here at least once when in Cabo.
