I make a point to stop here every time I visit town on business. I always sit in the bar because of their self serve chip bar. Lots of choices of sauces and dips. Food is always hot and fresh. Menu is not overly exciting but the food is always decent quality. Lots of TVs in the bar area to... More

When we walked in they stated a 45 minute wait for the restaurant so we decided to go the bar. The waitress came by after 10 minutes and took our order and I asked where the chips and salsa where (as she went by 20 minutes later) as I saw many customers had them on the table. She said by... More

Does it count as a chili relleno when there's no chili in it? Food below average; lots of tortilla and flour, with little meat or cheese. There was really not a chili in the chili relleno.....a little slice of one, maybe, but difficult to find. Enchilada was very"pasty" and flavorless. Beef taco better, but substandard. Service was fast and very... More

We were at Paradiso in the afternoon, arriving after 1:30 or so, so guessing we avoided the lunchtime crowd. There was lots of seating, and was easy to have a conversation with coworkers without being too loud. There are a lot of tvs around the dining area, so also a perfect place to watch sports. Depending on how busy it... More

Stopped in here on a Monday night to watch the football game and grab a bite to eat. Their bar area is awesome and they have at least 20 TVs. Easy to get a good seat with a great view of the game. They also have a self-service and chips and salsa bar which is great for bar patrons. You... More

Chips and salsa is great. Food selections are plenty. You get a free meal on your birthday. Have to have the fajitas. Love their burritos, rice and beans. Cheese sauce is yummy.

The bar was half full, empty tables were full of dishes and the chichen chimichanga had a wild taste to it. Was hard to get a server back to tell them about it, so ended up not saying anything

Service was fine. Food was terrible. I don't think the chef has ever been to Mexico, had Mexican food, or even read a Mexican food cookbook.

This place will not set the bar for great Mexican food. It's okay. Today was another example. Our chips at the beginning were not entirely crisp. Food was okay. I was told the nachos had the jalapenos baked in the with cheese. They do not. Waiter had that fake friendly style and he pushed a little too hard about keeping... More

Server very rushed, but slow. Food very bland. Chips cold. Not good. Did not enjoy at all. Go somewhere else.
