Service was good, not real crazy about getting up and going to refill chips and salsa, but it wasn't that bad. The food was really good. I haven't tried any other Mexican restaurants in the area so I'm not sure how this one stacks up. I'd go back again for sure.

Paradiso is a nice restaurant in a convenient location. The service is good, the food is good, but there is a better Mexican restaurant in the area. This is not saying you will be disappointed at the Paradiso because it is a good restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere!!

Good service, good food, big portions at a reasonable price. They are slipping on the " Mexican experience"- getting more of a regular restaurant vibe, but it is a chain, so there you go.

The service was good. The food came out fairly quickly. The food was decent but not great. My husband and I had the beef fajitas was not satisfied with this order, kind of tasteless. My daughter had the chimichangas and I tried a bite and I wished I would have ordered that instead they were good. There chips and salsa... More

I have been here a handful of times because I have coworkers that love this place. It is not authentic, and it's gross. A place to go for a free dinner for birthday, maybe. But I would personally never choose this place to eat. Staff is nice, but food is not Mexican of any sort.

I have eaten here many times. It's always good and the food is served hot. The complimentary chips you get with the meal are tasty and can make you full before your good comes! We always have the deep fried ice cream.

Friday night we arrived to a wonderful taco bar and had a beverage to complete the evening. Staff was pleasant and the bar was just full with a few seats. Perfect. Nice place. NO WIFI But found the reason. Customer wifi chokes the tills and other dependant wifi equipment within. So to alleviate that the manager removed the option of... More

While visiting Minot from Arizona over 4 times in the last eighteen months our family has eaten at this restaurant on each visit. The food has always been very good as well as the service, I would recommend this restaurant for anyone that has a taste for authentic Mexican food.

Decided this would be the place for the Fathers Day dinner this year....I chose poorly. First...service was bad. No drink refills, multiple requests for chip and salsa refills just didn't happen. The food was subpar, had to return first meal, a seafood chimi...was so salty could not eat it. Ordered an enchilada plate...again, the sauce was so salty I could... More

Travel to North Dakota on a regular basis for business and always make it a point to stop at Paradiso restaurants in whatever city I am in. Some unforeseen are better than others. Grand Forks is top notch. My night is a few steps below that. Portions are still good and value is still good but food quality is substandard.... More
