We arrived in a rain storm at 6 PM and found the parking lot full! Lucky to find an empty parking space. Exterior of the building is painted with large Mexican murals on all four walls. Hard to miss. Bit over the top for my taste, particularly in Fargo, ND..

We were seated within 5 minutes, even as busy as they were. We ordered a fajita and it was good but would not measure up to the Mex food we are accustomed to eating in Phoenix. The quesso was considerably more cheesy than we prefer, but it was tasty. Chips and salsa were crisp and tasty. Highlight was the service. Our server was really excellent. If you need a Mex food fix in Fargo, give it a shot.

We attended this under advice that it was an authentic Mexican restaurant. No sauces on teh table?

We asked the server about it who replied "we have no call for them". Is that not integral in a Mexican restaurant? Nuf said.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican, this is not your cup of salsa. Still, there is a lot to recommend Paradiso. First, the restaurant is broken up into many smaller settings, creating a feeling of intimacy. Second, they almost always seat you promptly. Third, there is a huge menu. We had combo platters with more than we could eat. Mine had a giant taco, two enchiladas, a tamale accompanied by rice. The tamale was dry and low on meat. The other items were tasty, especially with the slightly hot green sauce. By the way, the salsa was good but mild. If you want mild and generally tasty food, you will likely find something to like here at Paradiso.

The front desk staff hates their job, they don't smile and act like they are so stressed out they are ready to walk out anytime. They tell you a 20minute wait and it turns into 40 minute wait! We go once a week, and go thru the same thing each time! The food is amazing, but hire people who smile, and when you walk out, they don't thank you, they are too busy talking to each other..

Good thing the chips are free...too bad the dinner is extra! Decent amount of food, just not terribly good.
