They make home made tortillas on site and give each customer a fresh tortilla with fresh salsa when you first walk in. They give you a warm bean dip with the chips which is great. The food is just okay, nothing on the menu is outstanding. The tamales taste like the frozen kind you find in the stores, but the enchiladas are probably the best thing on the menu.

“Great Mexican Food - Love This Place!”
Reviewed 26 May 2013 via mobile

This is my favorite Mexican Food restaurant in the Snohomish area. Their El Paraiso Platter (carne Asada and grilled shrimp, rice and beans) is my first choice although I've also enjoyed their fish dishes a well. I really like the fact that they make their own tortillas and that they give you one with melted butter the minute you come through the door. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants great Mexican food in the Snohomish area. They also have a location in Everett which is just as good.

“Good food & family fun”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

While the food may not be exceptional, it is very good. The facilities are colorful & interesting as well. We had a large family birthday here and of course we got the sombrero & song treatment. It was a lot of laughs. Service is fast and very friendly.

“Clean restaurant with great staff but food was just okay.”
Reviewed 21 December 2012

When you walk in you think you are going to get excellent mexican. The atmosphere is clean, the staff is friendly and they really go out of their way to take care of you. This is great until you get the food. Honestly, it is actually more authentic Mexican cuisine. If you like Americanized Mexican or Tex-Mex then you probably won't care for it either. The ingredients were good but frankly it lacked any flavor, no salt or spice. I got the tacos and enchilada. The cheese on the enchilada was bland and the whole meal was simply unimpressive and lacked any real flavor. The tacos did not even have cheese on them; simply a shell, meat lettuce and a tomato slice. Even the chips and salsa were lacking. Also, it is a little pricey.

I gave them three stars because hands down the staff and atmosphere is excellent. If they could just find some flavor for their food this has the potential to be an awesome restaurant.

If you are in the mood for a more authentic Mexican meal, you can get it here. Good, fast service, quick with the refills. Reasonable prices, good quality food.
