I read other reviews and if I would agree the food has really declined. The nachos were good although we had to ask our server 3 times for sour cream. We ordered the seafood platter and what was suppose to be the enchilada dinner. Instead...More

We have been dining at Desi's for over 20 years, but recently (past 2-3 year) the quality of food has declined precipitously. Friends, who we used to dine with, will no longer eat at Desi's. Good luck finding any meat in their beef burritos and...More

We always stop here when we go quadding or snowmobiling on the trails. It is very easy access off the trails, and they have great food! Haven't had anything there that I have not liked. Highly recommend the taco salad.

This is a good place to eat if you want Mexican or American food. Their burgers are really good, their Mexican food is very good, and the atmosphere is very nice. I have a very vintage vibe to their restaurant.

I wouldn't refer to this as a Mexican restaurant, however, their Mexican food is DELICIOUS. Tastes more authentic in my opinion than some 'authentic' Mexican restaurants. Cozy, dim atmosphere. Lots to look at! I am from down-state Metro Detroit area, but anytime my hubby and...More

This is not a Mexican place. This is a restaurant that has a few Mexican choices on the menu. That being said - the food was okay. The service was good. My father-in-law wanted to eat here so I don't think we'll be back unless...More
