Waiter seemed overworked, hard to get to come to our table, we had to flag down other servers to get help.

Most of the food was good, and they have really good chips and salsa.
I ordered this steak fajita dinner and was very disappointed. The price was one of the most expensive and the description made it seem like 2 people could share it, which is why we were willing to pay the extra.
There was barely enough for one.

My Mom's dinner was huge! covered the entire plate and was $5 less.

This visit was not the norm. It usually is one of our "have to go to" when we are in town.

We have one in Fargo, I took the ladies I was there working with out to lunch.
It is standard mexi-american food. Nothing to write home about.

We've been to Paradiso several times and generally are quite happy with it but I feel I have to review the restaurant's kid's menu as we travel with our 5 children and can make a fair comparison. DON"T WASTE YOUR $$$$$ on a kid's meal. They have poor choices and when the food arrives, it is always a huge disappointment - fries roll around on that plate because there is so little food. My kids aren't big eaters but really?!! It's brutal AND the meal does not include a beverage or a dessert. Best off to order an adult entree and split it amoung 2-3 kids.......lesson finally learned!

To my knowledge, there are 5 PARADISO restaurants, all in North Dakota. Being originally from Winnipeg, my friends and I always make visiting this restaurant a priority whenever we are in the vicinity. The decor is so, so pretty. You would think that you were in Mexico, not in the plains of the USA. And the food is superb. My favourites are the burritos, my travelling friend usually chooses an enchilada. And we always say that the food at PARADISO is better than most of the food we've eaten on various vacations in Mexico.

Both myself and my husband had chimichangas and they were delicious. Chips and salsa were constantly replenished without having to ask. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas and got about 4 each out of it - great deal for $10. Just wish we had the room to try the deep fried ice cream!
