    We went to this restaurant on a prior trip to Palm Desert in 2018 and couldn’t remember what it was called or where it was, and thankfully we found it. The food is excellent- the chips are made in house and are some of the best I have ever had, not the typical store bought salty stale chips. The homemade salsa and guacamole are superb. They have a wonderful menu with many options, fish, meat, and vegetarian. The octopus was stupendous. For dessert we were so full but could not miss the tres leches pastel which was even better than imagined. The best part? The Guillermo margarita which was probably the best I’ve ever had (this is after getting back from a week trip in Mexico last month). The service was perfect- very polite, prompt, and attentive. I cannot recommend Guillermo’s restaurant enough! Too bad we have to drive from LA to eat there, but we will be back!

    It was Cinco de Mayo, but not too busy at 2pm. Sat indoors in a very cute restaurant. Great cold beer. Service slow to come to table despite mostly empty tables inside. Two of us split a combo fajitas. Very small portion with not much beef. Peppers and onions good. Chips were crisp. Guacamole was average. Not much spice. Will return for beer and nachos.

We asked about recommendations regarding our drinks and some of the food items we selected and she gave us her opinion and we loved everything she recommended. Very enjoyable evening, we have eaten here many times

    It’s not the Guillermo’s I remember. I understand cutting food cost, but when you do, you will pay in the long run. You’re better off not offering a menu item if it’s not cost efficient. We ordered the guacamole, which was delicious. Dinner we both had crane asada which was awful. It even looked bad on the plate. No green, red, peppers, only over cooked onions with a couple jalapeños. Very disappointed!!

    We’ve (my family, and I)have been going to Guillermo‘s for at least 20 years. Every time we go out to the desert which is  two hours from our home, and a vacation spot for family and grandkids. Of the in numerable times we’ve gone to this incredible family restaurant we have never ever been disappointed! The food is fantastic. (do not expect Taco Bell!) this is real food excellent margaritas. , I recommend Bertha’s tamales you’ve never had MASA this special. Great Mole. also!

    I love Guillermo’s. I’ve been coming for years. I noticed a change last night in the quantity of food, I ordered the Guillermo special salad and it’s completely different from what it used to be years ago and not worth the price point. Carnitas and burritos are delicious, but sizing appears to be reduced. Delicious but smaller portions.

    I told our guests from Washington state that Guillermo’s is the best Mexican food in the desert. They agreed it was excellent, but didn’t think our server was very attentive. I think my guests are used to servers that smile and seem happy doing their job!? Oh well. We will be back over and over.
