Possibly the best Mexican restaurant. Exceptionalism's nail variety, excellent service and all for a reasonable price. Love the outdoor seating on summer days!

We stopped in to El Paraiso after a long day on our feet. We were seated quickly and a warm bean dip and some seriously spicy salsa was brought to the table along with some fresh chips. The dips were yummy and it was nice to much on while we decided what to eat. I ordered the Burrito Loco, the... More

Damn good Mexican food for being this far north. Hand made flour tortillas.... You don't see that often. Ok, they were smaller than silver dollar pancakes but delicious. Salsa was very respectable as well. Will be back!

They have a great HH menu with terrific Hornitos Repasado Margaritas for $7.25. Our server was very attentive and the Bartender made me skinny Margaritas to my specs which was appreciated. We had Taco salads and Tostados for $7.75 and $8.50 respectively! Great value at a hot Happy Hour!

So first off, that main photo is not this location. This location is on the main drag on Colby Ave. But whats most important is how GOOD this place is. Seriously good homemade Mexican food. I was super impressed upon entering being offered a little homemade tortilla with some fresh salsa. Such an awesome little welcome and it was so... More

GREAT place! Really extensive menu. They'll offer you a freshly made tortilla when you walk in; take them up on it. Recommended by a local and a great recommendation at that. I ate with a group of folks from work and a customer. Everyone had something different and everybody was really happy with their food. What really struck me was... More

We were there on a very busy night, but it was festive and upbeat. Our table tried several items and all were tasty.
