I have spent a few times eating here, never have had a bad experience. they even have hot salsa if you prefer. The wait staff are on top of what ever you need. not like some places that drop the food and don"t come back Intel your done.

We come here every time we're in town. We live in Tri Cities but have yet to find decent mexican food. This place is always consistent with their food and service. Great food and service at really reasonable prices. Food is hot and fresh. Drinks ice cold and yummy.

We usually go to the bar area with friends from work and have always had great service and excellent food. The prices are very affordable also!

Having eaten at Paraiso for many years, I have seen their quality slowly deteriorate. The last time we ate there, my seafood was tasteless, my wife had Chicken ala crema, whish had little chicken and more onions than she could ever eat.

Hidden gem of tasty Mexican fare. We enjoyed the picadillo (beef and pork) enchiladas and crispy tacos both tasty. If they make good enchiladas then the rest of the menu will be good. We lived in Texas and Arizona even traveled through out Mexico, so we know good Mexican food. Our food was served hot and was to order. Oh,... More

Enjoy great service from staff that are having a good time. WIde variety of Mexican dishes served quickly. Family friendly, good, unassuming ambience. This is solid standard Mexican fare, not upscale. Very good value. We were well fed and uplifted.

For the past 15 years, we would come here a couple of times a month. I don't know if the restaurant has changed hands, but for the past year or so the food has become quite ordinary - like any of the other chains that say their Mexican. Their pico used to get RAVE reviews and friends would ask us... More

I have gone here for almost 20 years and all of their food is delicious. Their fried ice cream is the best and so are their fajitas

A regular Friday night stop for us when I don't feel like cooking. A warm friendly place with a large selection of food. The building is a bit old, but the place is very busy. In fact, years ago a "new" much nicer Mexican restaurant opened across the street. Big shiny, brightly lit Mexican bar and grill. It lasted about... More
