They have a great HH menu with terrific Hornitos Repasado Margaritas for $7.25. Our server was very attentive and the Bartender made me skinny Margaritas to my specs which was appreciated. We had Taco salads and Tostados for $7.75 and $8.50 respectively! Great value at a hot Happy Hour!

I was super impressed upon entering being offered a little homemade tortilla with some fresh salsa. Such an awesome little welcome and it was so... More

GREAT place! Really extensive menu. They'll offer you a freshly made tortilla when you walk in; take them up on it. Recommended by a local and a great recommendation at that. I ate with a group of folks from work and a customer. Everyone had something different and everybody was really happy with their food. What really struck me was... More

We were there on a very busy night, but it was festive and upbeat. Our table tried several items and all were tasty.

We've been eating here for years and it has always been amazing. Every dish is wonderful and the service it top notch. Lunch or dinner is an experience. This is the best Mexican food I have had outside of my family made meals. Large enough to accommodate big groups and they have fast service. Don't hesitate to eat here.

El Paraiso is great! I have no idea if it's "authentic" Mexican, but it's darn good food, the helpings are huge, and the wait staff is always funny and helpful. You should check it out if looking for a great Mexican meal!

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant. The service is always great but the food is really good. The Colby location is our favorite but the food and service at all of the locations is equally as good. Love that as you walk in the door you are offered a hand made flour tortilla that is yummy!
