Chef-owner Dave Atwell of Desperados Fresh Mexican Grille takes pride in cooking everything fresh to order. Homemade salsa, sauces, guacamole, black beans as well as making his own chips. Signature "Smokin' Fajitas" is a menu favorite — marinated steak or chicken served with grilled poblano pepper, red pepper, onion and potato with a side plate of rice, beans, lettuce, tomato, cheese and warm flour tortillas.

Atwell said he bought the restaurant from a good friend, Randy Ross, in 1998. "He trained me, showing me all the ins and outs of creating fresh Mexican cuisine," says Atwell.
Over the past several years, he has incorporated of lot of his own ideas, such as Drunken' Shrimp (grilled plump shrimp soaked in top-shelf margarita, served over rice and topped with grilled veggies, cheese and fresh cilantro.) "We have all the popular classics — tacos, burritos, quesadilla, chimichangas, and wraps," says Atwell.
And he's got more: Dining out on your birthday? "You can enjoy any entree up to $13.95 on us as Desperados way of wishing you all the best on your birthday," he says.

|"Welcoming Mexican restaurant in Williamstown, MA - great value with very tasty food! Excellent salsa is freshly made. We enjoyed the fundido with fantastic house-made chorizo and also pork and apple carnitas - they may sound odd but the flavour is magnificent! Margarita's and service were good as well!
|"I have been here twice and both times ordered a shrimp dish - first the Caribbean wrap (with coconut shrimp) and then the shrimp fajita salad. Both were cooked perfectly and were absolutely delicious. I've frequently gotten overcooked shrimp at restaurants but Desperados has not let me down yet!
Also very importantly, the guacamole is fresher than fresh and perfectly seasoned. When paired with the warm tortilla chips that you get before your meal, it is unbelievably yummy. There seems to be no shortage of flavor here."|
|"Desperados also has a location in North Adams, MA, which is where I ate a tasty late lunch/early dinner for Cinco de Mayo today... my meal was absolutely delicious...The price is right, everything was cooked perfectly. They have a killer house salsa that they serve you when you're seated with freshy fresh chips. Cactus glasses."|
