Great Mexican food

The food here is the best mexican I have ever eaten. They have a huge menu and it is free on your birthday. They also have a huge drink menu. It is a very large restaurant and has the look of being in Mexico. The prices are very reasonable.

Such a wide variety of dishes, friendly service, free chips and salsa that are refilled without even asking. Multiple margarita flavors. While they no longer list them on the menu, they offer meat substitutions for vegetarians (soy based imitation beef) giving me way more options than I'm used to in a mexican restaurant. Everything tasted great.

Like this place. Good Mexican food, free chips and sauces, and anything you want to drink. Staff friendly and on the ball. Great to bring the birthday person to, they eat free. Makes you look like a spender if they don't know.

We met a couple here for lunch and a short visit. With the smorgasbord of pizza as well as American dishes and salad it was quick and easy for all of us to pick out exactly what we wanted. No one had anything negative to say about their dishes and we all went back for more. Top it all off... More

We had heard about this restaurant from friends. We decided to give it a try. There was a long wait but we had the time. We waited about half an hour. The restaurant was very busy. It is a large restaurant as well. Once we got our seat we ordered a drink and went over the menu. We ordered a... More

If you want Americanized Mexican food, this is your place. The food tastes like most of it came from a can and very little is made from scratch. Service has been great at times and other times I've mentally estimated the tab and left cash on the table because I've already waited 20 minutes since I've finished eating. The food... More

The menu is very extensive, almost too many selections are available in fact. The servers did not engage at all, and I even had a hard time getting a response to what their favorite dish was. After that, despite being after the dinner rush with not many other diners it was a challenge getting drinks. Very decent flavor and texture... More

Every time we are in Grand Forks, we make sure to have a meal at Paradiso. We have had Mexican in a lot of places in the southwestern states and you can compare this food to any we have eaten. The chimichangas are the BEST! In fact, if our children are going down, we always get them to pick up... More

Whenever in Grand Forks, we make sure to have a meal at Paradiso. They have a great kids menu and it is very family-friendly. The food is great too! Beware the it gets quite busy around supper rush and you may have to wait for a table. Best to come during off-peak hours.
