This is Texas, so there are so many Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants that you can't turn around without seeing one. Desporados is one of the very best, in my opinion. The food is great, from the chips and salsa, to the fajitas which have one of the best marinades around. There prices are good as well! A must try.

Me & hubby have been coming here since they opened. George use to be here & ran the place! Sweet man. Now his boys run both restaurants. One on Greenville and one on Campbell though the original holds our hearts. We unfortunately came on St Patrick day parade day🙄. Margaritas in a plastic cup, not great service but the Desperado...

We love this place and the Desparados tacos are incredible. I ordered them and my son snarled them and we had to order them again before a family feud broke out. Restaurant is full of character and they are very nice. I met the owner and he was so welcoming and kind. Try the sopapillas for dessert, yummm!

Wonderful place to eat. The food was delicious and wait staff very friendly. We only had an hour for lunch, and was able to drive a couple of miles, eat and get back in the hour. It was so good we went back two days in a row and I had the exact same meal. Will definitely go back.

Desperadoes is a local favorite with fantastic menu options and classic Mexican dishes. I had the chicken fajitas which came sizzling hot with peppers and onions, avocado, lettuce, pico de gallo, sour cream and fresh flour tortillas for wrapping it all up. The side of bean soup was delicious and well seasoned and a nice chance from the typical beans... More

We have been going to Desperados for several years and always love the food, the service, and the atmosphere. We have our favorites: taco fajita salad with beef fajitas for me and the beef fajitas for my husband. Both are a full meal and we never go away hungry.

We went to that very typical Tex-Mex restaurant to have a late lunch. First, the decor was very beautiful and we loved the ambiance. We appreciated the food a lot and also the margaritas. About the service: it was made with a smile and very efficient. The price was also very friendly. We couln't ask for more!
