We enjoyed a late afternoon lunch at El Paraiso. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was good. We ate their with our service dog. The staff brought water to our dog and were very cordial to us. We ate on the outside patio.

Pretty standard Mexican restaurant. Big menu. Food is pretty good, but a little pricey for what it is. The wait staff is very friendly.

This is a nice little Mexican restaurant. Great service. A patio in the front and one in the back. The chili rellenos and enchiladas were delicious.

This is more mediterenean style food than Mexican. It was a filler and thats about it. I dont know what kind of spice they use, but its not coming from Mexico.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We had to wait a bit for our food but we were supplied with plenty of tasty chips and salsa in the interim. The restaurant was packed and still the waiters were friendly and very attentive. The outdoor seating was pleasant. Dishes were appealing and attractive. Great service. The margaritas were were tasty, strong, large... More

Authentic Mexican food and very tasty. On Friday night, the restaurant was busy and a little noisy. Would definitely recommend. Inside and outside dining.

Ate here two nights ago with friends. We sat outside and the atmosphere is refreshing and relaxing away from "hustle and bustle" of Main Street. It was a busy night, so some service was slow. They were quick with beverage orders, but the check was slow. I enjoyed chicken fajita salad with extra avocado. Highly recommended. Chips were ok but... More

The people here have so much love in their hearts, and they have great food. If you are ever having a bad day, go to El Paraiso, the food will please your stomach, and the people will warm your heart. Best Mexican food around, with many options. We go here every time we eat out, and never regret it. The... More

Overall, a solid dinner but can't say it was great. Started with queso that was real cheese vice melted... With green chiles so it was the best part. Son had cheese enchilada plate that he really like. Wife and I split fajitas for one (and it was enough for two after the queso and chips). Meat was middle of the... More

Returned one last time to see if things improved in the quieter season. I agree with another reviewer who wrote that she feels like she's in Mexico when eating here. I feel like I am in Juarez, where fleecing the "gringos" is standard practice. They are still stingy with their portions, and overpriced. they have raised their prices twice in... More
