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

My sister and her family took my family here at a recent visit. We had a group of eight (including two babies), and we were very well taken care of. Our waiter was attentive, and the food was great! We would definitely go back!

I'm new to the Fargo area and as such had been told to check Paradiso out. I am from a New Mexican Hispanic family who eats Mexican food almost every day so I am picky and I know it when it comes to any type of Latin cooking. So first things first- I'm not even sure where to categorize this... More

Walked in from cold and chanced takeout. Score. Lots of good eats for very little money. Did it twice, both times service and speed couldn't be beat. Go here and eat hearty.

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!

Found a table for four in the bar, and ordered drinks and dinner. Enjoyed chips and salsa while we talked and waited for our drinks and dinner. Great waitress. I ordered a strawberry margarita. It was pretty heavy in the strawberry syrup and very sweet. I would choose the regular frozen margarita next time. The meal arrived and all four... More
