Friday night out

After keeping a friend company for the afternoon, I was treated to supper at this fine Mexican restaurant.

We came here for lunch with friends and were seated right away. I ordered a banana daiquiri and my friend a margarita, the drinks took forever to get to our table, we watched several other tables come after us and order from the bar and get their drinks a good 10 minutes before ours arrived. The food was not great,... More

I have eaten here many times over the past 40 years and always thought they had pretty good Mexican food. We don't live in this part of the country anymore but we stop and eat here when we travel through every couple of years. This time the food was nothing special and the service was very slow. The floor was... More

Paradiso is by far my favorite Mexican restaurant in Fargo. Every time I have gone the staff have been very friendly and helpful, and the food is always delicious. Anytime someone asks me about a good Mexican place to eat, I always recommend Paradiso. Also I really love how Paradiso gives you a FREE meal on your birthday! I went... More

Disappointing. Paradiso was "the" place to go when we lived in North Dakota. This trip it was just another Mexican restaurant. It still has the "look" but the service was slow and the food was nothing special.

There was nothing special about this place. The nachos could have been made by our 6 year old granddaughter. The chicken was tough and when it was hidden by the shredded lettuce and we figured out why when we started to consume it. The queso lacked spices therefore not much taste. Finally I did not see one Hispanic person in... More

Delicious food, decent prices, great service. Be careful that you don't fill up on the super delicious and addictive chips and salsa. Fun to share entrées. The veggie fajitas are my favorite, you won't miss the meat one bit!

From the moment you can see the restaurant from the highway it's strikingly beautiful and it just gets better as you get closer! Inside, the architecture, layout, and decorations make this place a treat for the eyes!!. We had combination platters which were more food than we could eat, for a very modest price, and it was all delicious, and... More

The food was alright, nothing special. I had ordered the ultimate quesadilla, it was very plain. Drink prices were good and the salsa that they served with their chips was fairly good. The service was okay, not great. I would not eat here again.
