In honor of Desperados Mexican Restaurant’s 40th Anniversary, the restaurant is hosting a 40th anniversary bash on Thursday, October 6th from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at their Greenville location. The family-owned Mexican restaurant has been a Dallas favorite for four decades and has cemented itself as a city landmark on Greenville Avenue since it opened.
“Staying in business 40 years is a testament to the hard work that my family puts in to the restaurant day in and day out,” says Jorge Levy, founder and owner of Desperados Mexican Restaurant. “Desperados is all about family, and when our guests visit our restaurants we want to make them feel as if they are visiting our home. It’s been an incredible experience to see generations of customers returning to Desperados over the past 40 years, ingraining our tradition into their own families and coming back to celebrate birthdays, weddings, baby showers and baptisms with us. We are incredibly grateful to the Dallas community for supporting us and allowing my family to do what we love for 40 years.” Continue reading
