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.

Been meaning to try this place a couple of times we've driven to/from Minneapolis. Good food, good service and some full bellies. Will be back this way in a few weeks, and will definitely stop for lunch.

I'm sure that Paradiso doesn't serve authentic Mexican but either way, we find the food delicious. Whatever voodoo they do do on the carne asada is pure sorcery that I completely condone and support! It is so delightful! The chips are usually pretty fresh and the salsa is flavorful with chunks of onion, carrots and peppers throughout. They are also... More

We always try to stop in Paradiso for a lunch while in Fargo and we did not miss this time. Always great service and good food. Portions are fair sized also.

We tried the quesadillas and the fajitas. Both were very good. Large portions . Very nice atmosphere and great, fast service.

There were 7 of us, some of whom were raving about how good this restaurant was. Personally, I found it totally over-rated. One of our group had her order stuffed up twice and was offered a $5 discount, which, when you consider that the meal she ordered was not what turned up, is insulting. I wouldn't NOT recommend it but... More

Food is just ok. Cheese dip was very tasty. Salsa had carrots, not sure I had seen that before. Chile relleno was smashed flat, have never seen that before. Regular and raspberry margaritas had little to no tequila. Waitress was less talkative I ever had, no menu recommendations at all.

Service was okay and the food was okay. I found the salsa a bit too hot and they didn't have anything milder and didn't offer any other solution. Kind of took the fun out of the free chips and salsa.
