Good food, great service and fair prices with fresh tortillas

The food was tasty. The portions were HUGE. The service was great. What's not to like? They make their own tortillas and that's a big plus if you order an entree that comes with tortillas. You will enjoy this place!

You are greeted at the door by a lady making hot fresh tortillas. They are free although of course, she would like a tip. The chips and salsa are complementary and the menu is pretty typical Mexican food. We like the family atmosphere, and when I have taken large groups there to eat, they always accommodate us and we are... More

We've been here MANY times - so often they remember us now. There aren't many Mexican restaurants that have homemade tortillas, so that had me sold straight away. All of their food is delicious, we've tried nearly everything on the menu. Sitting in the Cantina is recommended if you don't like to hear screaming children in the dining area. Their... More

This is a great location for Mexican food in the Everett area. Great portions, good service and great tasting food. The cantina daily specials are a great value and the main menu has a great selection. Try their enchiladas, they are great.

Carne Asada anything is delicious and the tortillas the lady makes when you first walk in at night are to die for! Great place!

I've been here lots of times and I'm never disappointed. Even after visiting Mexico, I still love the food here. The service is excellent as well and the downtown location provides plenty of opportunity to walk off your meal after.

This was some of the best Mexican Food I have ever eaten. We found it quite by accident after playing racquetball at NAVSTA Everett. Service as well as the food is beyond excellent. It appears to be a family owned and operated restaurant.

A little out from the centre of Snohomish WA is the El Paraiso Mexican Grill. The decor is total Mexicana. Very clean and inviting and great service. The food is probably the best Mexican fare I have ever experienced in the Pacific North West.

We both ordered a "small" combination, chill relleno and something else. The restaurant was packed, service was slow, and it took a while to get a napkin to use with the chips. Our very hot plates arrived eventually, and the chill relleno was cold - - - but we didn't dare let the waitperson know. We arrived after "happy hour"... More

My husband, son and I had dinner here tonight. The food was acceptable, not great, not bad. Unfortunately I am (genuinely) allergic to gluten. I explained this to the server who seemed half-hearted in his appreciation of my concerns. I ordered what I felt would be safe, a tostada salad (confirming it was a corn tortilla). Needless to say, I've... More
