“Pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

This is not authentic Mexican but this North Dakota. I'm glad I didn't base my decision off the reviews who complained about that and I never saw anything of them claiming authentic Mexican... Service was good and staff was friendly! Chimi Fundido is superb and I recommend it to everyone who stops there.

“Fun restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013

Menu is varied and by Canadian standards..cheap. The margarita was strong - my boyfriend said they free pour so that's why. Lots of different things on the menu including combo plates where you can sample a few things. If you want to avoid kids, perhaps go a little later there are lots of families there.

“Mexican TV dinner is a better bet”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

Never had bland Mexican and it tasted like it was nuked in the microwave 3 times over. The chips and salsa weren't even good. Salsa tasted like it came out of a can and the chips were stale. The service and atmosphere wasn't too bad to add something positive about the place.

“An ol' favorite from another resturant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

This was my first time to a Paradiso, despite living in Fargo for almost a year. I opened the menu and found to my delight, almost a whole page of vegetarian dishes! (I'm not, but I really love to have the option) And then my eyes found something amazing: SEAFOOD BURRITO. I proceeded to order this and was rewarded with a humungous burrito filled with crab sticks and shrimp and smothered in a cheesy sauce. This is the closest I've ever come to tasting the seafood enchilada from Chi-Chi's at a restaurant.

Other than that, the chips and salsa were standard. Service was fast and friendly and the restaurant was clean.
