A visit to Mass MOCA and this place was recommended. Small side street, and very comfortable. Our waitress was great, food delicious and we had a lovely experience.The place is small but the service and feel of the place was very friendly.

This is a busy time in Williamstown but that does not mean that the blond waitress that we had tonight had to be so brief as to be close to rude. The greeter was very nice and offered more chips and salsa and when we asked about an item that had been on the menu, the Mexican pizza, our waitress offered it. That was nice. Garnish does not seem to be a consideration, even in mid summer. The quesadilla came plain on the plate, not appealing to the eye or the palate... actually it was ugly and the only thing that saved it was the guacamole that we ordered (and paid extra for) on the side. The requested Mexican pizza was not what we have had in the past and was too cheesy and not much in the flavorful department.

So, well...We would love to have the Desperados we have been to before.

We had a great dinner here that included some of the best salsa I've ever had (it had chunks of tomato and marinated red peppers) followed by one of the best burritos I've ever had. I think it was the Desparitto and it had steak, shrimp and chicken along with fresh veges, a little rice and beans and cheese. Great food! Everyone enjoyed their meals and the drinks were also good including a decent draft beer selection.

Excellent Mexican food - amazingly large selection on the menu. Hard to pick a favorite, burritos are top notch if I have to choose. The margaritas are great and so is the sangria. Dos Equis is one of the beers on tap along with a couple of local micro brews. Service is very good and food comes quick and hot.

The citrus chicken dish is reason to make occasional visits here. So is the sangria, which is reasonably priced. Chips and salsa are complimentary, and the service is very friendly. Only problem is the noise, both from the televisions and some of the groups, family and otherwise, that often congregate here. If you want more atmosphere and more authentic cuisine, try Coyote Flaco.
