We went for dinner tonight, the restaurant was empty but the hostess insisted on taking our name and making us wait before walking us into the empty restaurant. Upon recovering my food that had obviously been sitting under the food lamp for too long as my sauce had a hard top all over it. When I asked the waitress if... More

I'm originally from the this area and frequented La Campana Paradiso while attending UND. Every time I'm back to visit family, I try to include a stop at Paradiso. The most recent visit wasn't as wonderful as the previous ones. I started with an Orange Mango margarita and wish I'd stuck with beer. It tasted like an extremely sweet slushy!... More

It has lots of seating but is often busy, but worth the short wait. A popular place to go for a Birthday to get a free meal for the person celebrating a Birthday. The Hot sauce is mild enough to eat, and I especially like their Enchiladas with Green Gravy. My wife usually orders the Sampler Platter, always enough with... More

Stopped in with family on our last day in town. Seated right away because it was not busy, which was great. The chips seemed kind of salty but still good. They give each person their own little bowl of salsa instead of sharing one big bowl like most mexican restaurants do. Overall it was a good meal and we always... More

Have tried a lot of different menu items and it's all good, service is friendly and quick. As soon as your seated taco chips and salsa is served while you pick your dinner choice.........that's a nice touch.

We've been to Paradiso a couple of times and have been very satisfied with the service, quality and flavour. The food was always served fresh and provided decent flavour, (although some dishes could be spiced up a little), but it's a big restaurant with a big menu and there will be some compromises. Either way, it was good value, and... More

We eat here almost every time we come across one. We have in the past driven three hours from home just to eat here. It is very Mexican themed inside, and they start you off with chips and salsa. Everything we have tried is very tasty. Be sure to save room for the fried ice cream for dessert.
