Let me just start by saying WOW.
I live and Denver and make the short drive to BV fairly frequently during the summer to camp & hike. After a day of shenanigans on Antero my boyfriend and I went to the Green Parrot for drinks, then decided to head to the Mexican restaurant across Main Street to try it out -- I didn't remember El Paraiso being there last year, but it looked nice on the outside, and hey, who can pass up Mexican food on a summery afternoon??
The service was great - we never had to wait for someone to come by and fill up our glasses and they were prompt and friendly. This place is family owned and you can tell they take great pride in their work and service.
He ordered a couple of beef tacos and I went for the Pollo Chipolte - both dishes were FANTASTIC!!! I don't think I've ever had better Mexican anywhere...including Mexico.
The prices and portions are also very reasonable.
Bottom line - visit this place if you're ready for a great lunch or dinner. This is likely the best food in the area.
