Everything was very freshly made with high quality ingredients. Our waiter suggested a couple of items on the menu and the flavor like a review below are craveable. Even the house marg was very nice with a fresh squeezed lime base. The chef went out of his way to send some special prepared sauces as we enjoy spicy food. In a word delightful! A touch pricy if you are on a budget but worth the visit.

Beautifully prepared authentic Mexican food in a nice but unpretentious setting with terrific service - hard to beat. Great salsa which you can buy to bring home ( they put it in a tequila bottle). Best carnitas ever and their Diablo sauce was scrumptious but not too hot (they'll make it as hot as you like).

It wasn't dead at 5 but I'd get a reservation for later tables as it filled up as we left.

Definitely going back

I was surprised to see an overflowing parking lot at a nondescript, strip-mall restaurant, but now I know why there was such a crowd. The food at Guillermo's completely satisfied our cravings for a delicious Mexican dinner. While there are some familiar items on the menu, there are also some unique and unusual dishes that you won't be sorry about ordering. Very friendly staff. Like so many places in Palm Desert, you're essentially eating in a parking lot with very little atmosphere, but at least the delicious food more than makes up for the uninspiring ambience.

We've eaten at Guillermo's a handful of times but never for lunch. We were close by and stopped in. Excellent! Lunch is just as good as dinner and a must do if you like Mexican.

Great food and service. We recommend ordering family style and sharing plates between the group to taste as a many options as possible.
