We have been coming to Paradiso for years and always leave happy and satisfied. Sure there may be more "authentic" Mexican places to eat at-but this place always delivers consistently terrific meals. And who doesn't like chips and salsa before their meals?? Their margaritas are fantastic and the prices are great!

Stopped in for lunch. The restaurant is very clean and tastefully decorated. Service was very good. Salad was very good. Grilled chicken was good but a little bland. Refried beans were very good. Rice is average. I would go back again.

I'm not to really a fan of Mexican food, but my friends are so I ended up going there with them. I ended up enjoying my meal as far as Mexican food, and their drinks were great--especially the margaritas.

Awesome service, very reasonably priced and fun atmosphere. Food was tasty just as ordered. Very crowded when we arrived but we were seated in bar for short time and moved to restaurant. . Best margaritas!
