Food was good, but nothing special. I got the mixed fajita platter and wasn't overly impressed. The tortillas were really good, made by a little old lady at the front of the store. The onions and peppers were over cooked and greasy but the shrimp was great, beef good, and chicken not so much.

When ever I'm craving for Menudo I always go to El Paraiso Mexican Grill. It's not on the menu but if you ask for it they will serve it to you. Try it, it's pretty authentic and don't forget to try the handmade tortilla made at the entrance. Yum!

We absolutely love the food and service here. My favourite dish is the chicken chimichanga which comes with rice and beans, my wife loves the pollo asada. The blended margarita and warm chips, pick de gallo and bean dip are amazing. I could eat here every week.

I was quickly greeted by the friendly hostess. We were served chips, warm beans, pico de gallo and too spicy of salsa for my tender taste buds. Staff was friendly. They have lunches starting at around $6.50. Our chips and beans were refilled. They could have been more attentive to our drinks. Staff was friendly. The dining area was clean.

We went to this place as a suggestion from friends we were meeting that night. They had been there for lunch and loved it. We were seated right away, even though we were a slightly bigger than normal party (5 adults, 4 kids). We were greeted by an older gentleman who was very nice but he didn't end up being... More

My husband and I often stop in for a quick, flavorful lunch or dinner. At dinner time you are greeted by a hostess and then are able to watch a cook prepare a tasty, warm tortilla for you prior to being seated. So, so good! It's a casual place and a great meal before an event in town whether it's... More

El Paraiso is a small local chain of Mexican restaurants. The service is consistently good - friendly wait staff, and attentive. At the entrance is a older woman, making homemade tortillas. Make sure you get a fresh buttered tortilla before you sit down. Everything here is tasty and the presentation is nice looking too. Best chile rellenos this side of... More
