After a day of golf, the Living Desert and cruising Palm Springs, my husband, and a friend were in the mood for some Mexican food. I’m on a special diet, so Mexican food can be challenging. The food at Guillermo’s is fresh and clean and...More

Just okay - seems to be a busy place and the reviews were good. But we did try it twice in our two months in Palm Desert - and found it quite average.

We enjoyed dinner on the patio. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas- it was huge! Good thing we Ubered there! The food was very good, our only complaint was that service was a little off, with our drinks order getting mixed up and taking a...More

We recently went to Guillermos and all had the pork carnitas. It was recommended to us and was delicious. The portion was just right. Service was good. We had a reservation which I would recommend.

I want to be generous, since it is Cinco de Mayo, but our experience was lackluster at best. We were referred by the concierge at the Marriot Desert Springs and booked a table at Happy Hour to avoid the rush. Our waitress was attentive and...More

This is the place to go for really good and very creative Mexican food. Spend some time with the Margarita menu too. They use high quality tequila rather than the lighter fluid you often get in margarita.

Authentic, great staff and awesome food! What more could you ask for? Very busy, but found us seats after only having to wait 5 minutes. Salsa and guacamole is excellent. Fajita's were some of the best we have ever had. Beans and rice were AMAZING!

The guitar player is there every night from 6:00 P.M. until 9:00 P.M. He's very good & we enjoy the music. Not too loud. Also, I am sure the restaurant would accommodate your vegan tastes if you let them know.
