Great sevice and food

Our Valentine's Day visit was a last minute decision and we were afraid we might not get a table. We were seated after a short wait and service was great despite the crowd. Food was good and we enjoyed this return visit.

Lots of good food. You won't leave hungry. Chips are free, as the menu cover says. They come with regular and hot salsa. Try the hot salsa only if you can handle heat. In terms of dishes, I liked fundido pollo and the ultimate quesadilla. Sopapilla is also good as desert. We also had an appetizer, spicy bean stew topped... More

I frequent this restaurant when I travel to Fargo because it's across the street from my hotel. The have a free taco bar during happy hours, so it's good on my expense report. A beer some chips & salsa and a couple of tacos for $5. Works for me.

The service is terrible and the food matches the service. It's terrible quality and they are like a turn style they push you in the door and try to get you out before you sit down.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food, this is not the place for you. I came here for a friends birthday and ordered a chicken tamale and a chicken enchilada. The chicken in the tamale was very processed and I was not impressed. The chicken in the enchilada was less processed but it had no flavor. I had a... More

When my family and I attended Paradiso we were just sitting down minding our business, and we had also ordered our drinks. When the waitress came back she also brought the chips and salsa and when we tried to give me mine she spilt the salsa all over me. It was like BAM and then all of the salsa was... More

Came here with a friend for her birthday party. The food was decent and the service was pretty good. I always order the same thing here any burrito except seafood steer clear lol. Not overwhelmed by this place but not underwhelmed either.

The food here is good and there are vegan "meat" options though not "cheese". The staff seems aware of what must be excluded and can be included though I typically don't use the v-word, I just say no dairy, no egg, no meat. We typically leave very satisfied with the taste of our food (though the portions are quite large)... More

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
