“Best Mexican Food in Arlington”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Paraiso is a great place to get excellent Mexican food in Arlington. We have visited this restaurant for over 10 years and always have a great experience. The food is great, the waitstaff friendly and efficient, and the prices reasonable.

“Great Mexican food between Seattle and Vancouver”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

We found this gem by sheer luck driving between Seattle and Vancouver, B.C. Family owned, apparently with several restaurants in the area. Friendly, knowledgeable, staff. Really, really good Mexican food. Large portions. Very reasonable prices. It is about three minutes beyond the chain restaurants near the freeway exit, and very well worth that extra time and effort to find it. This is definitely a place the local folks appreciate --- I think we were the only non-locals in the place and it was crowded for a Saturday lunch. I drive between Seattle and Vancouver several times a year, and I intend to try to time my trips just to have lunch or dinner here in the future.

“Best Mexican in Area”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Paraiso has great food and very attentive servers! Plus their fiesta margarita is to die for!!! The bar area gets busy pretty much every night of the week, but the restaurant isn't quite as busy.

“Yummy food with fast & friendly service”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

After visiting The Outback Kangaroo Farm that's also located in Arlington, we came here for a late lunch/early dinner. There were seven of us and they seated us in a great spot with plenty of room to spread out. Their menu had a lot of variety, but not so much that we felt overwhelmed. The food was delicious and the service was spot on and super friendly. We loved it and highly recommend. The shrimp fajitas, pollo con crema, and espresso burrito with pork were especially tasty. And the prices were affordable too with most dinner entrees hovering around $10-$13. We will return if we are in the area again for sure.

“Huge portions, delicious mexican food, unbeatable prices”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We dined there with our parents (in-law) on a Thursday night. The following Saturday we picked up some take out for a large number. We had been before years ago and remembered the good, homemade food. I think this is a family run restaurant. The service is super friendly and very efficient. The food is fantastic. Home made tortillas filled to bursting with goodies. The tortilla chips served while you wait are also home made, not greasy and delicious. The salsas have a lovely spice to them. We had pork, and chicken buritos - huge. My husband ordered a side of carne and beans - it was the size of a main course for about $3.00. My chicken diavolo was very spicy (i like that) and very tasty. The servings are huge (you may want to share) and the prices are incredible. It cost us about $12 per person including drinks (a good sangria). Highly recommended.
