The fact that this is in the top 15 best restaurants in the Fargo/Moorhead area disgusts me. Having lived all over the country and eaten at many Mexican restaurants I have never had a good meal here. The food is greasy, bland and the portions are way too big. If you are looking for overpriced taco bell then you've come... More

Love coming to the Paradiso each time in North Dakota. The mexican food is quite enjoyable and good for a fun evening. Waiters are always nice when we come into town, both in Grand Forks and Fargo. Expect to be very well fed!

We like trying new places when traveling. Paradiso has a cool decor. Great place to eat. You can not go wrong eating here. Come hungry as you get a lot.

Came here for a business lunch. I got the lunch Flauntas. They were really good and only fault is it was a huge portion for lunch. Could definitely be shared. I loved the jalepeno jelly to dip them in- spicy but sweet at the same time.

Had the Chile Verde Burrito - two thumbs up! Hub had the Chicken Fajita burrito & cleared his plate. Service was friendly & fast even though it was Friday Happy Hour & they were slammed.

We always visit when in Fargo. Had lunch on this occasion. Food was decent. Very busy for lunch, so felt somewhat rushed. Will visit again, but probably check out some of the other Mexican places in town too.

We've eaten here several times when visiting our daughter in Fargo, always a pleasant experience. Wonderful food, lively atmosphere, and friendly service every time! I would definitely recommend it to someone who is in the area and I've heard that it's a local favorite, which usually means they're doing something right!

We always love dinner at Paradiso. Sunday kids eat Free. Wings are surprisingly yummy. Chips & salsa are always free. Love this place. Great service - a piece of Mexico in Fargo. We will be back for more.

Thank Chriszach2014
