“Good Mexican.”
Reviewed 14 November 2012

Buena Vista has four Mexican restaurants, and this is the one to try when in BV. It is family owned and a twin to one in Gunnison. You will find a long menu with lots of choices, and reasonable family prices. The food quality is very good and predictable with flavors on the mild side that you can spice up if you wish. The service is personal, friendly, and excellent, and you can practice your Spanish there, too. The restraurant is located on US 24, the main North-south road just 2 blocks south of the only stoplight in town.

“Margs!”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

These Margaritas are awesome! free chips and salsa is always nice too, and the food is really good authentic Mexican if you decide to eat. Service is great, everyone always smiling and joking around. Like these people at El Paraiso.

“Good Mexican Food”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

I've eaten here twice this year but not since they moved from S Main to their new highway location. Good margaritas and enjoyed all the Mexican food dishes. Service is uncertain - one time waiter disappeared a really long time, and no drinks or food, so I got up to look for him. Still not a lot of good food choices in BV so glad El Paraiso is here!

“Authentic Mexican”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

My favorite dish on the menu is the whole fried tilapia fish served on a huge oblong colorful platter. This dish gets attention from everyone sitting in the restaurant and I order it every time. The other dishes are also authentic Mexican and very good. I thought that the items lacking on the menu were "mole" (my daughter-in-laws favorite) and "chicharones". The staff is attentive, colorful, and extremely friendly. They love kids.
