This restaurant in downtown Everett serves better than average Tex-Mex. The dishes have flavor and are not too salty. The lunch menu offers better value than the dinner menu. The bar is in a separate room from the restaurant.

It's possible we've been to this restaurant 100 times since we moved to Everett 10 years ago. It's that good. The restaurant has changed a little over the years, but has been reliably friendly, fast, and GOOD, always. The welcoming tortillas are a wonderful touch, and the wait staff is helpful and friendly without being in your face. Most recommended:... More

We live near this restaurant and eat there often. The wait staff are all very nice and pleasant but management is rude and doesn't seem grateful for returning customers.

They serve a very good meal at a reasonable price. Staff are very nice. The food is not smothered in cheese like some Mexican restaurants do. It is a local favorite of ours.

I live in Germany, and there are no Mexican restaurants here. One of my friends took me and my boyfriend here for lunch, and it was the best Mexican food I've ever tasted. All of us ordered some type of fajita - my boyfriend had pollo al diablo, my friend had carne asada, and I had camarones el mojo (I... More

My daughter took me here. We had steak Fajitas for two. Sooooo good. Fresh quacamole. Their warm chips that we got when we sat down, were so crispy and fresh. The warm bean dip and a bowl of Salsa was devoured while our Fajitas were being prepared. The Tortillas were warm, soft, & fresh too. We enjoyed our lunch and... More

The will make just about anything you want and how you want it made. The menu is very complete. The service is very fast and very... More

We went to El Paraiso with three families. The 6 kids (from ages 7 - 13) sat at one table and the 5 adults sat at another. The staff were amazing - especially Martin. He pretended he could not speak English and had the kids laughing and taught them some Spanish. When the kids asked for sugar, he brought hot... More

El Paraiso is our restaurant of choice when we have a craving for some good Mexican food. Everything we've tried on the menu has been delicious, from the enchiladas to the fish tacos to the tortilla soup (my favorite, won't order it any where else). Love the Carne Asada and the portions are quite generous. The staff is friendly, we've... More
