We've eaten here a few times. The food is always good and the service is good as well. Love their enchiladas!

We happened upon this restaurant by chance. I was in the mood for fajitas but they weren't on the menu (which seemed a little limited) but then our server informed us that fajitas were the special. Not only were they fresh and delicious the service was incredibly friendly!

Only place that seemed to be open on a Sunday. Pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. Large portion size and very good food.

I had planned to surprise my husband by taking him to a nearby Indian restaurant. But not knowing the area, it was smack dab in the middle of a college town and there was no nearby parking so I was scrambling to find another place to eat in the next town. Unfortunately we came across this place. Having dressed up... More

The food is on par with Taco Bell. Nothing authentic. Asked for a dish without cheese and it still had it. Sorry I could not say anything nice.

We happened to show up on a Tuesday after our visit to MOCA - so I got all of the shrimp tacos I could eat. I only made it through 4 - but they were great. I saved the salsa and guacamole to help it. My better half had shrimp and crab enchilada and loved it. Oh and the overhead... More

It's so good we dine at Desperadoes at least two or three times a month. (And that's a lot for any ethnic restaurant.) Service always friendly and attentive and the enchiladas are outstanding -- especially on Tuesdays when they are on an "all you can eat" special.

My visit here was for a take out order of chile . The place looked clean . The take out was slow . The so called chile seemed like meat sauce for hot dogs . The Desperados in North Adams was all around better to my liking .

We were there on a Tuesday. All you can eat burritos or enchiladas but we couldn't finish even two. We also had 15% off with room keys. Not fancy but good food. GREAT service and a good margarita

Fresh food, large portions, different options. Great margaritas. Would call ahead for reservations. Sauces are a bit different than usual with mole and fresh chips and salsa.
