We sat in the bar area and had great service. The food was super and of course the chips were free! Our server paid very close attention to our needs!

Stopped in to enjoy their nachos. Nachos were great. The restaurant was a little dark, so we were glad to sit by the windows.

We went here to eat on two separate occasions about three weeks apart and both times we were seated and we waited for at least 10 minutes and no one came to take our order. The first time we just left and on the second time, I asked to speak with a manager at the seating stand before we left.... More

This place is pretty good Mexican in our region of the country. Good atmosphere. Good menu. Good service. Good prices. Just darn good all the way around. They have a really nice bar area with free food most days. In the summer they have a nice patio area that is really popular.

If you are hungry, this is a good place for a heavy lunch - especially if you are not familiar with Mexican cuisine titles. Lighter fair is available in taco's and the like. The atmosphere is cool however, the décor is very pleasing. The food and service are good and the prices generally in line with other eateries. Two of... More

I was not expecting the quality and authenticity of the Mexican food served here. After all, this is North Dakota. I don't think anyone would expect what I received, in North Dakota. I'm a truck driver, and travel all over. I'm often in Arizona and New Mexico, but I can honestly tell you, I have NEVER eaten better Mexican fare...ANYWHERE!!!

We never miss celebrating a birthday here! It's a family tradition. Of course with proper ID the birthday person eats free! Typical Tex-mex food, but always properly prepared and hot. The grilled Chicken dinner is my favorite, family has a problem getting past the fantastic sauce on the Cancun - a seafood lovers delight. We eat here about 10 times... More

I went online and easily accessed the menu from the Paradiso website. I placed my order and was told it would be ready in 10 to 15 minutes. By the time that I arrived, the food was ready and awaiting pickup inside the lobby. The food at Paradiso is always delicious and the customer service and quick ability to accomodate... More
