Staying at Mt Princeton Resort we drove to Buena Vista for dinner. Margaritas were superb as were the red chili enchiladas & chile relleno which I’m picky about. Hubby wasn’t too thrilled with his shrimp dinner though. Salsa has a lot of spunk. Very good service!

This Mexican restaurant has a large but rather plain patio, partially covered from sun and rain. Our dinner was a mixed experience. Service was friendly though timing was off. We waited for a made-from-scratch guacamole that was good. The chile relleno was one of the least satisfying we can remember. Other items (tamales, enchiladas, etc.) were all covered with the same tan, rather tasteless sauce. Margaritas are large and tasty and the pina colada was a delicious treat. Prices were reasonable, especially during Happy Hour that ends at 6 pm.

We popped in to El Paraiso on a Saturday night with a group of 10. We offered to split our group, but was promptly seated at a table for 10. Our server "Will" saw to our orders and drinks. Everything was correct and promptly delivered to our table. We all enjoyed our meals, the food was prepared correctly and quite good. Chips, Salsa and bean dip were complimentary. Parking was a little difficult as the restaurant is in an area where there is limited parking but we managed.

My family lucked into this outstanding Mexican restaurant today. They served fresh everything, including corn chips and salsa they make. The lunch menu was authentic and delicious. It was reasonably priced, the decor was great, and the staff was super friendly. We'd return in a heartbeat.
