Within 24 hrs of dining at Paridiso, I got sick from spoiled seafood and my credit card was used to create an Amazon account and make a catalog purchase. Luckily I have an understanding boss and credit alerts on my card. My stomach was not permanently damaged, the credit card was immediately closed and reissued, and Amazon and Chase are... More

My favourite mexican restaurant in Fargo. Not the most glamourous place, but if you like authentic mexican food this is the place, they are a family friendly place that is reasonably priced, with tasty food.

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.
