Always a Family Hit

With the free chips and birthday meals, my family often visits Paradiso. With small children, I appreciate the options on the kids menu and specials where kids eat free. The restaurant is always busy, so at times, you will need to be prepared to wait to be seated. Lots of menu options and... read more

The food is not fancy but the service is always good, the food is always hot, the ingredients are fresh, the portions are good size and it is a good... More

Pretty standard Americanized-Mexican fare. The food is consistent though. I would avoid going on Sundays, as it tends to fill up with churchgoers and loud children very quickly.

The food is pretty good, I'm used to authentic Mexican food, which this is not. But for being a chain restaurant in North Dakota, it's not bad. Staff is great.

Went for a family dinner. I have a favorite entree I always get but the last couple visits , I decided to try something new which was disappointing. Will have to revert to the favorite entree for the next visit.

Love this restaurant. Chips served free, usually cold. Huge portions of food. Menu is pretty repetitive. Not authentic mexican food but tasty. Ultimate margarita is strong.

I've lived in Texas, Arizona and California so I've had Mexican food in states that border Mexico. While Paradiso is not probably considered authentic, neither is much of the Mexican food I've tasted in the border states in which I've lived. The food at Paradiso is plentiful and good, and my brother says the margaritas are fabulous. I've been satisfied... More

Our server was great but the food was pretty disappointing. Everything was either dry or soggy, food came out with flies on it. We usually love Paradiso but probably won't be coming back for while.

We only get to Paradiso once, maybe twice, a year. We love Mexican food and while it may not be "authentic" it is extremely tasty and filling! We absolutely love the food and atmosphere at Paradiso. Free chips and salsa, unlimited. The food arrives quickly, very hot, extremely delicious!! Easy on the budget. We usually go for early supper and... More
