We like just about everything about this restaurant. Having moved from the Bay Area, we determined we'd not even consider moving to Paradise without a good mexican restaurant. This is the one that closed the deal...! Kim is a great waitress too...!

My partner and I are new to the area and decided to try this place because the parking lot is often busy when we drive by. Big mistake.
The pros: the waitress was fine , the place is large and has many dining booths.
Cons: everything else.
The food was bland, with low quality veggies & meat, limp lettuce. The chips were stale, salsa flavorless, and the margarita was awful. We've had better Mexican from taco trucks in town.
All in all, we felt like the owners use the cheapest quality food they can find. Thanks, but, no thanks. It could have been a nice place to have dinner now and again.

First, the Good:
Excellent service, from the Busboy to the Waitress.
Water glasses kept full, and we were asked if we needed anything enough to feel cared for, but not harassed.
Chips & Salsa were fresh, and the salsa was decent, though it needed fresh cilantro in it. Our meals were average-sized portions, not skimpy. This restaurant honors discounts for Paradise Inn guests, and when we showed them our room key, there were no questions asked. They cheerfully gave us the 10% off. The shredded beef in the Combo Burrito was not fatty and had good flavor.
Now the not-so-good:
No Horchata available! The restaurant was not super clean, it could have been cleaner. Food was good, but not exceptional. On the #6 Combo, the portion size was odd with a kiddie-sized burrito. Extra salsa was 99 cents, which is just silly.
Would I eat here again? Yes, but I am on the lookout for a better Mexican food restaurant in Paradise, CA.

We were in town and told this was the best Mexican restaurant in town. However, we found the food was just ok. We ordered the Fajitas and this is the first time I have ever had them show up at the table not sizzling. The service was slow and the waitress did not seem to enjoy her job. We had to ask her twice for everything.
The restaurant itself is clean and has a nice interior. The salsa was nice, but the magaritas were kind of bland.
So the bottom line is if this is the only place in town that is open it will do. However, I would try somewhere else.

This place has decent food. We eat here regularly. We are never overly impressed nor are we ever disappointed. It is what it is, good reliable food.
