Best Mexican food in town

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

Recently we were in Everett to attend the theater & stopped in at El Paraiso Mexican Grill for drinks & dinner beforehand. You are handed a freshly made little tortilla filled with tomatilla sauce as you enter. What a way to start. This little gem has a good menu, with a large variety of vegan/vegetarian dishes. The food was prepared... More

Great happy hour and bar specials! Just had 99 cent tacos (chicken or beef) on Monday night in the bar only. Service isn't as attentive as I'd like. Tuesday nights is barbacoa tacos...2 for $3.95 (I think)...these tacos are much better!!

Having eaten there many time, I was pleased with my recent visit, where I had a chili relleno and enchilada. Both were prepared with excellence and the service was quick and friendly,

Central location, good chips and salsa but the bean dip is kinda runny. Great value on the menu. I like the south Everett location better but this is location is good.
