“Not what we expected”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We have eaten many times at the Paradiso in Minot, North Dakota and so we were a bit disappointed in the quality of the food at this Paradiso in Bismarck. The food was okay, but we have had much better Mexican food elsewhere.

“Something different for a change”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Stopped here on our way through Bismarck. We wanted something a little different than burgers and fries, and the motel clerk suggested this place. When we pulled in, the parking lot was crowded, and there were several people outside (figured we didn't have a chance of getting in soon). We were surprised to find that the wait would be short, and we were seated in about 5 minutes! The service was a bit slow (since they were very busy), but the food was very good! I had a "sampler" platter with several items on it (all very good). We would definitely return when in the area.

“Very tasty food”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

The food was surprisingly good. The service was good, and fast considering how packed this place seems to be. I went back more than once.

“Pretty good”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

This is not authentic Mexican but this North Dakota. I'm glad I didn't base my decision off the reviews who complained about that and I never saw anything of them claiming authentic Mexican... Service was good and staff was friendly! Chimi Fundido is superb and I recommend it to everyone who stops there.

“Fun restaurant”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Menu is varied and by Canadian standards..cheap. The margarita was strong - my boyfriend said they free pour so that's why. Lots of different things on the menu including combo plates where you can sample a few things. If you want to avoid kids, perhaps go a little later there are lots of families there.
