“Everything was Perfect!”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

This is a great mexican food place with exceptional drinks. The food was exactly what you want from a good tex-mex place. Great appetizers and entrees. The wait staff was very attentive, even to our large party. They seemed to encourage lingering, instead of the push to fill tables. Very refreshing! I will visit again!

“Desperados tacos!”
Reviewed 24 August 2012 via mobile

Love their tacos made with steak and fried in a flour tortilla with cheese and pico. Their lettuce and tomato that comes with it has a tangy dressing that is great to finish the tacos.

“Disappointing ...”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

It's just been an hour since we left the restaurant. It was very disappointing to say the least. The whole place was so dark. Customer service was very bad. Tonight was a slow night and yet the waiter never came to check on us til we called him. Food was a blah. My husband and a friend ordered both steak entries and they are basically the same except that the sauces on top are different with the other being $4 more expensive. Potatoes were uncooked, the amount of meat was less than 4 oz. Their House Margarita tasted like water with a hint of lemon. Needless to say, we will not be coming back at this place again.

“Different Mexican”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

Desperados is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the Dallas area. I personally love their Desperado Tacos which are deep fried. They have a number of items on the menu that are not typical Tex-Mex and offer a nice variety. We recently hosted a group of 20 of my college classmates from various parts of the U.S. and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. One of the ladies started off saying she didn't care for Mexican food but by the time dinner was finished she had changed her mind.

“Pretty good mexican”
Reviewed 4 November 2011

Had lunch here with some local colleagues earlier this year. Pretty crowded at noon; we waited a long time for a table. But the meal was good, the staff was nice, and all was well. I ordered the Chicken Itza off the dinner menu -- I detest Tex-Mex, which was pretty much all the lunch menu offers -- and it was really quite good and reasonably priced at about $11. Yes, I'd go back, but just not at peak lunch hour.
