We enjoyed the food at Paradiso. The chips and salsa were good with a perfect amount of salt, and the burrito and combination platter were good also. The service wasn't exceptional. Instead of asking if we're doing ok, it would have been great to have...More

I wouldn't qualify this as Mexican food. It's Tex-Mex at best. There's nothing spectacular about it. Had better.More

This is our go-to for inexpensive, vegetarian food. The servers are decent, hence taking away a star, but they are very considerate when you say you want your food to be vegan. We go here numerous times a month.More

Paradiso is a regional franchise popular with local residents. The Bismarck location is a much nicer place to eat than the Fargo restaurant which is often so loud you can't talk to your dining companions. It would be nice if the Jalapeno Burrito had a...More

Popped in for a early snack. The place was busy and a bit crowded. We had the Comp Taco bar that's served between 16:00-18:00 M-F. It was very good and the crowd shows it is a continuous hit there. Old and in need of some...More
