El parasio is my favorite Mexican restaurant in gunnison, though ive never been to the Mexican restaurant across the street from el parasio which is also supposed to be good. I've always had a friendly attentive server and delicious food, I've even found myself order fajitas to pickup and bring home! A little pricey but not too bad, good huge... More

Stopped on the way out of Gunnison with my family & friends (3 adults, & 3 nine year old children). The service was outstanding! Each and every employee was extremely caring in our needs, and especially the needs of the children! On top of that, the food was delicious! Will definitely return there on next trip to Gunnison!

Visitied friends in Gunnison this past weekend and requested a Mexican restaurant to celebrate hubby's bday. El Paraiso is in a converted house (I always love the eclecticness of these places), so can be a little tight in places. The food that all 7 of us ordered was yummy and my margarita was definitely not weak! Service was friendly and... More

My friend did not want beans with her fajitas but wanted to make sure the... More

Very good food. A little slow in service, but worth the wait. The guacamole was the best I've tasted--fried ice cream topped the meal well.

You won't find a friendlier place - with great service to match. The food is outstanding (try the carnitas) and the beer is cold. Sit outside if it's a nice day. The piped in music is a bit hokey but really sets the mood. Easy location to find.
