Food is OK but not spectacular. Reasonable prices and good service make this a good place to take a family out for dinner and not spend a fortune.

We went here for a birthday supper for my Mom's 95th birthday. Service was outstanding and the food was great. The food was served on hot plates, so our food was hot and delicious. We'll be back!

Drinks are discounted as well as all the food items after 9:00. Had the taco especiale...liked the ground beef and chicken...didn't care for I the shredded beef. Free nachos and salsa to start. Great place to go...always busy so going after 9:00 is perfect because you miss the rush, get to shop a few hours longer before supper and then... More

We grabbed an early lunch here and the place filled up while we were eating. Had the enchilada tamale combo with the verde sauce. Very good. My lunch date loved the tacos.

This is a classic place to go for Mexican in FM area. Wish we had one in Moorhead hint hint. I went last Sunday with my Auntie who was craving Mexican. We all ordered combination type plates. I enjoyed two enchiladas and a very excellent tamale. The gravy was good.

If you like Mexican food and not just tacos and burritos, Paradiso is very good. Chimichangas and fajitas as well as an extensive selection of margaritas. Free meals on your birthday but they require proof so " Don't forget your wallet!"

This restaurant was recommended to try when in Fargo. My wife and I had a very nice dinner and enjoyed some great food. The service was very good despite being a busy Friday night. A friendly place with a fun lively atmosphere.

I have a tan husband so all Mexican places have to pass his test and this one did which is funny because he was born in Az. So much for being "Mexican." But he does like to compare all the Mexican foods he eats to what his Madre (Mom) Tias (Aunts) and Nana (Granny) made and he said this place... More
