Surprise Birthday Bash

We surprised my sister with a birthday dinner surrounded by loved ones. The food was GREAT and the staff was amazing. Very accommodating! P.S. the queso was AMAZING!

Pretty basic Mexican food. Plates are always hot as is the food. Service prompt and friendly, most of the time!

My daughter had eaten here on previous visits and said it was really good. I have to agree, I got through half of my chimichanga and was stuffed, lots of food.

Every time I visit Fargo, I go to Paradiso and get the Seafood Enchilada. LOVE it! The menu is a typical Mexican restaurant menu, but for some reason, my husband truly enjoys it better here, than most places. (I can't speak to that...for decades, I literally only ever get the Seafood Enchilada.) I especially like the kids's menu. There are... More

The service at this place is so hit or miss! And the food, it's so obvious it wasn't prepared fresh in their kitchen. If you choose to done at this restaurant, do yourself a favor and avoid the seafood.

We eat here every time we are in Fargo, the service is good, food is hot and tasty. Chips are free and comes with salsa, and end the meal with deep fried ice cream.

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

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.

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.
