Traditional Mexican Cuisine

With An Adirondack Mountain Flare!

They Come For The Food

kitchen rules

fresh ingredients marinated in mountain creativity.

Our team takes pride in what we do.  Everything is prepared from fresh ingredients every day.  The highest quality meats, produce, pantry items are sourced from right here in the Adirondacks when they are available, as well as the best producers we can find.  When we say authentic, what we are talking about is using the Mexican traditions we find interesting, and twisting them up with our own mountain sensibilities.  We hope you find it to be a refreshing view and taste on this popular ethnic cuisine.

the tequila

one of the largest selections on the East Coast!

Desperados offers one of the largest selection of Tequilas in the East. When we opened, Jose Cuervo was it. Now, we offer over 170 different tequilas and mezcals. If it’s out there, then we should have it.  This variety offers up vast tasting choices, but also allows us to make some FANTASTIC cocktails!  Our bartenders are happy to showcase these to you and your party, and of course we have the best Margaritas in town.  You hear that often, but ask anyone and they’ll tell you “Despos has the BEST!”

Amazing drinks. Bartender is really amazing and fixes everything perfectly. For being so far up North the food is very good as well. One of the better restaurants in Lake Placid.

I had the Chiles Rellenos, which was probably among the top 5 I’ve ever had. I can’t recall what my partner had, but he was pleased as well. My partner had a local micro brew and I had an Adirondack Sunrise; we were both pleased with these tasty adult libations. The server was attentive and friendly. Great meal without spending..
