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!

Came here with family since it was close to their house, and reviews were pretty good. Restaurant is located in a strip mall, but seemed to have plenty of parking...which is always a bad sign. We were greeted by friendly staff, and seated pretty quickly. However, when we were first being lead to our seats, we kept passing multiple empty... More

I'm Mexican. My family cooks Mexican food and strangely we still go out to eat Mexican food from time to time. My son was in the mood for fajitas. We found El Paraiso with good ratings and it was near the hotel. Everything we ordered was outstanding. My son said the fajitas were the bomb. I tried them and have... More
