We've eaten at El Paraiso several times and the food has always been good as has the service. The last time we were there (just a couple of days ago), the service was exceptional. They were very busy, but we didn't suffer from lack of attention. The staff seemed to team together to make sure the customers were taken care... More

This little jewel is located right across from a much larger Mexican Restaurant and even though El Paraiso is tiny their food is just great. The hot sauce is a 10, we even usually by about a half gallon of it to take home. The food is all fresh and cooked when you order it not before.

Stopped here for lunch based on close proximity to Gunnison Airport. Food was very good and the waiters are as cute as can be and quick service. Inside is decorated so cute and very clean.

This is some of the better Mexican food in town. The waiters are very attentive, making sure you always have chips and drinks. The quality of the food is above par.

We stopped for dinner on Saturday night about 6:15. We were seated quickly then were fairly ignored. It took a while to get menus and water, and another while before we got our order taken. We ordered off the ala carte menu since we had a large and late lunch and we immediately felt like we were second class customers.... More

A good Mexican type restaurant, appears to be popular with locals. The menu has a few items not found at run-of-the-mill or chain/franchise places.

We stopped in here because of the patio setting, the menu and the fact that it was open on a Sunday evening. We enjoyed their margaritas and various dishes from camarones chipotle (spicy hot!) to tamales, and fajitas. All came piping hot and very tasty. Service was friendly and the late afternoon sun made the patio dining quite pleasant.

I dined alone at 6PM and had my choice of eight outdoor tables, about half were occupied. Service was a little slow but not worth complaining. The food is average....I think there is better food across the street
